The new $145-million Golisano Children's Hospital will be a place of healing, and a place that celebrates the progress of our patients, families, faculty and staff.

The new $145-million Golisano Children’s Hospital tower, to be 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. When the new hospital opens in 2015, private rooms and a greatly expanded Neonatal Intensive Care Unit will provide our families with much-needed privacy and will enhance infection control efforts.

It will be a place of healing, but it will also be a place to celebrate who our patients, families, faculty and staff are. The future interior of the hospital, including graphic elements, decor, art and architectural features, will showcase the many beautiful landscapes of upstate New York.

Each floor will have a different theme, such as waterways, meadows, gardens and parks, with an icon to represent it. The icon will help families remember which floor they’re on and find their way back to it, and the floor’s theme will provide creative opportunities to engage with children of all ages in interactive ways. For example, on the Lake floor, children may be able to push buttons to cause bubbles to rise up through tubes in a wall. Other ways the theme will be incorporated into the building are more subtle. On the Park floor, glass in patient rooms may be frosted with leaves that will cast shadows along the floor with a linoleum park path in it.
