Anticipating and Innovating to Meet the Needs of the Community
Wellbridge Addiction Treatment and Research
Engel Burman continues to make its mark in the industry by not only anticipating the needs of a community, but by then applying its expertise and out-of-the-box thinking in its solutions for meeting them. It was just this kind of dynamic approach that resulted in the groundbreaking development of the Wellbridge Addiction Treatment and Research center in Calverton, NY.
Wellbridge is a first-of-its-kind campus where addiction researchers and clinicians work side-by-side to bridge the gap between science and care by collaborating to innovate new approaches to addiction treatment. Initiatives such as this align seamlessly with the Engel Burman portfolio and their foundation in leading with visionary innovative approaches to real estate development, construction and management.
As a fully integrated real estate company, the team behind Engel Burman is positioned at the intersection of divergent and convergent thinking, agilely synthesizing the two to bring ingenuity and know-how to every build. In drawing upon their vision for Wellbridge, Engel Burman understood that partnering with a healthcare provider that could bring best-in-class medical expertise to the table was essential. They found such a partner in Northwell Health, New York State’s largest healthcare provider. Together, they effected change in the addiction treatment industry with Wellbridge.

Building for the Wellbridge Mission
Built on a 96-acre campus in Calverton, New York, Wellbridge Addiction Treatment and Research was built to serve as the next evolution in addiction treatment. With that in mind, every choice Engel Burman made in its design and construction was done with the goal of realizing the Wellbridge mission. From constructing the campus in a serene location surrounded by lush woods, to placing the buildings in a horseshoe pattern as a way to build a sense of community and privacy, Engel Burman designed each detail as a way to create an environment that supported the Wellbridge vision of compassionate patient care.
A Sprawling Campus
Built from the ground up in just 19 months, in addition to the residential rooms, the campus includes a large research pavilion, a 200-seat auditorium, a dining room, centers for wellness and the creative arts, and a number of common areas to encourage community.
