World Autism Day - "My 'Super' Life with Autism"

World Autism Day - "My 'Super' Life with Autism"

In support of World Autism Awareness Day, several members of UR Medicine's Golisano Children's Hospital's Neurodevelopmental and Behavioral Pediatrics Department hosted a free awareness event today in the main lobby of Strong Memorial Hospital. As a way to increase awareness and advocate for patients with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), families and community members passing by were provided with various resources and information.

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.

Two stories of fun

Two stories of fun

At the beginning of construction, it felt like months would go by with barely any discernible progress on the new Golisano Children's Hospital. (Especially when the work was underground!) Now, every day is turning those initial renderings into reality.

One big change this week has been the progress on the two-story play pod wall that runs from the ground floor (Imaging) to the first floor (lobby) through the new atrium. Children in the Imaging waiting room will be able to duck inside the wall, and people passing through the atrium will enjoy the fish tank embedded in it.
