NYU Langone Health today announced plans to open the Julia Koch Family Ambulatory Care Center in West Palm Beach, Florida, in 2026, made possible by a $75 million gift by the Julia Koch Family Foundation™. The state-of-the-art, eight-story facility will have space for 50 physicians and serve 150,000 patients annually, allowing NYU Langone to dramatically increase the scope of care it provides in the region.

The new site, to be located at 324 Datura Street, will offer 77,000 square feet of clinical space, including on-demand specialty care in areas including internal medicine and primary care, oncology, and pain management. The expanded clinical practices will lead to improved access and reduced wait times for patients.

NYU Langone is a leader in world-class care, and bringing that level of service to the vibrant community of Palm Beach is deeply meaningful to our family.”

Plant-Based Diet Tied to Improved Sexual Health in Men Treated for Prostate Cancer

A diet that limits meat and dairy but is rich in fruits, vegetables, grains, and nuts is linked to less erectile dysfunction, urinary incontinence, and other common side effects seen in patients who had prostate cancer, a new study shows.

Led by researchers at NYU Grossman School of Medicine and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, the analysis of more than 3,500 men with prostate cancer explored whether eating a more plant-based diet was associated with quality-of-life issues that often arise after treatment. Sorting patients into five groups (quintiles) based on the proportion of plant versus animal foods the men said they ate, the authors found that the quintile that consumed the most plants scored 8 to 11 percent better in measures of sexual function compared with the group that consumed the least.
