A Next Generation Hospital Dedicated to Children View as you enter the hospital from the ground floor. View of the new lobby designed to be a warm, child, teen and family friendly place. View of lobby interior designed with fun play pods, mini children's theatre and other interactive adventures. Colorful landscape icons have been designed, representing each floor, to help families find their way. A secure waiting area will greet families as they arrive on each floor. Each patient hallway will incorporate the floor's theme in fun ways. These single rooms will provide families with much-needed privacy and space for personal items. The head of each patient bed is designed to make the patient space pediatric-friendly. The NICU will have private rooms with space for parents to stay overnight. Nurses' workstations have a direct view of their tiny patients even when they are not in the room. Our brand new $145-million Golisano Children's Hospital opened in July 2015. A Place of Healing Our new $145 million hospital is eight floors and approximately 245,000 square feet of space dedicated to children and their families. It provides our region’s children and their families with 52 private rooms and a greatly expanded Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, made up of at least 60 beds. Two floors of the building will be dedicated to medical and surgical care and the ground floor is devoted to Pediatric Imaging Services, with a new PET/MRI suite. During the second phase of the project to be completed in 2016, the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, Pediatric Cardiac Care Center and Pediatric Operating Suite will move into the new building. A Place for Gathering, Playing, and Resting The interior of the hospital showcases the many beautiful landscapes of upstate New York.Each floor has a different theme, starting with lakes and waterways, moving up to meadows and parks and ending with cities on the eighth level. Floors are equipped with an icon so patients and visitors can remember which floor they’re on and the theme also plays a large role in each floor’s different interactive activities. The new hospital fully embraces the need for play and normalcy with a toddler playroom and a new two-story playdeck on the seventh and eighth floors. Also on the eighth floor is a school room and a teen room that overlooks the playdeck. The new building gives pediatric patients a chance to be kids and it allows parents to take some time to find respite. Each floor has a lounge and a new hospitality suite provides parents with a comfortable place to shower, eat a home-cooked meal or even run a load of laundry.
