Giving to Golisano Children's Hospital
Hospital Design Puts Children and Families First
At first glance, it is apparent that the new Golisano Children’s Hospital at the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) is designed around the common theme of supporting our patients and their families. The most exciting features of the new building are the many spaces planned for gathering, playing, resting and finding respite.
The new $145-million tower, located on Crittenden Boulevard and attached to the medical center and Strong Memorial Hospital, will be eight floors and approximately 245,000 square feet of space dedicated to children and their families. It is expected to open in 2015. It is being financed through a combination of equity, loans, and a comprehensive fundraising effort.
Golisano Children’s Hospital’s $100 million campaign, which launched publicly in October 2011, supports both a new children’s hospital and major enhancements to pediatric programs. The effort is part of the University of Rochester Medical Center’s $650 million campaign and the overall $1.2 billion goal of The Meliora Challenge: The Campaign for the University of Rochester.
