Cityscapes on the 8th floor

The new Golisano Children's Hospital features a different New York state landscape on each floor. Many of our patients spend a lot of time in the hospital, and although we'll be adding more outdoor and indoor spaces, we know nothing replaces the feeling of home, whether you're from Rochester or the Southern Tier or the Adirondacks. So, we're bringing a little bit of those places into our hospital.

It feels like it was just yesterday that we broke ground on the new Golisano Children's Hospital, but in just a few months, we'll be moving in our patients and their families! For the next few months, the Miracle Milestones blog will be giving you the inside track on where we are in the process of finishing up construction, moving in equipment, training our nurses, physicians and other staff, and when we move our precious patients and their families into the building for the first time.

Girl battling cancer finds comfort in unusual friend

Since the beginning of the school year a stuffed monkey named Mavrie has sat in Avrie Sinesiou’s chair in her first grade classroom at Seneca Elementary. “Monkey in My Chair” is a national campaign to help cancer patients, like Avrie, stay connected to their classmates. Avrie hasn’t been able to meet her peers or teacher because she had a bone marrow transplant after a relapse with leukemia and her immune system isn’t strong enough yet.
