Construction Corner: A look inside

Take a look inside the future Golisano Children's Hospital with these interior photos (and a few good external shots)! Featured in our upcoming Strong Kids newsletter, these pictures take you down the corridor of the third floor, otherwise known as the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and up to the seventh floor to the general patient rooms and our expansive Playdeck.

The exterior renderings have really come to life over the last six months and now the interior of the hospital is starting to do the same. Features of the main lobby are becoming easier to pick out, drywall is being laid, bathroom tile is being placed, and foot and head walls are going in.

Explore the building and learn more about naming opportunities and how you can make a difference for the future of sick and injured children, and their families, at the Finger Lakes region's only children's hospital.

Eddie Meath All-Stars Bond with Patients Before Big Game

Top Section V football players and cheerleaders took the time to bond with patients at UR Medicine's Golisano Children's Hospital over some Abbott's Frozen Custard on Wednesday, July 2, all before their big east vs. west Eddie Meath All-Star Game. In its 32nd year, the Eddie Meath game continues to benefit patients at the children's hospital and has raised more than $150,000.
 
The ice cream social event gives players and participants the chance to bond with the patients they're playing for. "You can really see the patients light up when they see the All-Stars," said Betsy Findlay, director of special events for Golisano Children's Hospital. "Every player makes it a point to make a connection with a patient and you can see in the smiles how much it truly means to both parties."
 
See more pictures from the players visit to the playdeck on our Facebook page and check out the news coverage from our friends at YNN, Channel 13, and Channel 10!
 
The 32nd annual Eddie Meath All-Star Game will kick off at 7 p.m. Sunday, July 6, at Eastridge High School.

Sun Shines on Construction Site for Summer

Blue Sky BuildingThe crane has been taken down. The brick is laid. The windows are in. From the outside, UR Medicine’s new Golisano Children’s Hospital looks almost done. In reality, a lot more work is ongoing inside, and we need the support of our generous community to help us get it done over the next 12 months.
 
As we transition into summer, we love seeing the sun shine on the building with the bright blue sky in its background, showing off its beauty and what it means to so many people.
 
The windows wrapping around the building reflect the sunlight and stand out to visitors and those driving by. These captivating windows are just one of the exciting features of the future two-story playdeck on the 7th and 8th floors that will provide patients and families with a great view, which, on clear days, will reach the hills of the Finger Lakes. Progress on the space will even be visible through the windows for those stopping to imagine what it will all soon become.
 
NICU sunshadesThe building team has also made a lot of progress on the future NICU. The floor is framed and drywalled and the installation of the outside sunshades has begun (as seen in the picture on the right).
 
All of these changes are very exciting and there are so many more to come! Keep up to date by liking the children's hospital's Facebook page and following us on Twitter and Instagram.
