Miracle Makers: LeChase Construction
Outstanding Commitment by a Company
Building a Path to Our Children’s Future Care
Improving the care of our area’s youngest patients requires a lot of hard work on many different levels. To provide the best care for our pediatric patients, who come from 17 counties in the Finger Lakes Region, we need up-to-date facilities to offer advanced care. LeChase Construction Services has helped Golisano Children’s Hospital at the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) lay the foundation for the highest quality of health care for our patients.
“LeChase Construction has been a wonderful resource for our community. The company has insightful leaders, stellar services and an enthusiastic interest in strengthening establishments in the Rochester-area,” said University of Rochester President Joel Seligman.
For the past 13 years, LeChase Construction’s support has helped fund important projects that pave the way to better patient care at Golisano Children’s Hospital. The construction company has generously donated to the children’s hospital at URMC through corporate sponsorships and participation at many of the hospital’s fundraising events.
In addition to building the pediatric intensive care unit, LeChase Construction also helped fund the unit, which has dramatically improved facilities for pediatric patients in need of almost any medical service or treatment imaginable. The company has also supported the neonatal intensive care unit, where our tiniest patients receive care.
Over the years, LeChase Construction has been a corporate sponsor and eager participant in many annual fundraising events, including the Golisano Children’s Hospital Golf Classic and the annual Gala, the hospital’s biggest annual fundraising events, and the Ski Invitational and Radiothon.
“I love these events because they show the true spirit of our community. There is such a need to protect and care for our next generation and I appreciate being able to be involved first hand and to witness the generosity of all of those who participate in supporting these important efforts,” said Wayne LeChase, chairman and managing partner at LeChase Construction Services.
LeChase Construction has become increasingly supportive and involved with Golisano Children’s Hospital’s fundraising efforts over the years. The company is also very generous to the hospital as a whole, having donated half-a-million dollars to University of Rochester Medical Center to date.
In addition to heading a thriving company with a commitment to help our community, Wayne LeChase is an exemplary donor himself, both to the children’s hospital and to the medical center. LeChase recently joined the Eastman Dental Foundation Board and also serves on the University of Rochester’s Board of Trustees.
“Giving back to the community is important - I have always felt that to be a part of something truly you need to be involved and committed to the cause. Building partnerships, building community and building legacy is vital to long-term success,” said LeChase.
