The NewYork-Presbyterian (NYP) Hospital system is one of the largest and most comprehensive university hospital systems in the world, with six main campuses in New York City and Westchester encompassing 35 buildings with over 10.6 million square feet of managed space. The hospital’s Facilities Operations department tracks maintenance of its equipment through an online Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS). NYP’s Facilities Systems Group (FSG) is responsible for maintaining this system.
