Gala transports guests to old Hollywood

Gala transports guests to old Hollywood

UR Medicine’s Golisano Children’s Hospital supporters, including grateful parents, donors, hospital faculty and staff, sponsors and more, stepped into a movie scene out of old Hollywood Oct. 24 at the hospital’s 28th annual Gala.

New hospital, new entrances

New hospital, new entrances

It may not seem like a big deal to have a drop-off for our pediatric patients and their families, but it really is going to be a huge benefit. Many of our patients have mobility issues, and while the new hospital isn't far from the Strong Memorial Hospital loop, the new loop is closer and won't be anywhere near as busy.

New spaces for family

New spaces for family

One of the best things about our new hospital is all the space for families. Not only are patient rooms going to be private and larger to better accommodate family members, there will also be waiting rooms, a new lobby, a hospitality suite and a resource library.

Building donors come in all varieties

Not all of the 120 donors who toured the new Golisano Children's Hospital building are individual donors. Many of them are groups of people who have banded together to raise money and name a space inside the new hospital. Click on the photos below to see if you recognize any friends, neighbors or local media personalities.

If you'd like to get involved with a community group raising funds for the hospital, contact Stephanie Sheets, assistant director of community affairs at Golisano Children's Hospital, at (585) 275-2268 or click here to email her.

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.
