The MTA will spend millions of dollars revamping the 82nd Street 7 line subway station.  The renovation must include the addition of an elevator.  The subway is just blocks from Elmhurst Hospital Center, which last year handled nearly 700,000 ambulatory care visits and its emergency medicine teams responded to more than 130,000 emergency room encounters.  With the volume of traffic at this elevated station, there must be an elevator.  Elevators are not high tech, but standard equipment especially for a public facility that must be ADA compliant.  As the MTA plans the renovation, the must not overlook the need for an elevator.
