Construction and Refresh Effort (CARE) Crew

The Construction and Refresh Effort Crew refreshes and renovates public corridors, lobbies, stairs, and restrooms at Columbia University Irving Medical Center.

You might spot us at work in the evenings, brightening stairwells, installing new fixtures, and applying fresh coats of paint. The result is a better-looking, more welcoming campus.
