Sun Shines on Construction Site for Summer

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.
 
To find out how you can help support the new hospital, please call Scott Rasmussen at (585) 273-5932.
May is for Miracles

May is for Miracles

Every May, we, at UR Medicine's Golisano Children's Hospital, can barely wait for the Celebration of Miracles Luncheon to announce the 2014 Miracle Makers and Miracle Kids. Today, we finally got to reveal who they are at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center!

Our Miracle Makers are an incredible group of supporters who help make possible the care we provide to our region's children and their families. We would be lost without the dedication and sacrifice of these organizations, companies, individuals and parents:

Tricia White

Cycle for Hope

Ronald McDonald House Charities

The Drive for Miracles Radiothon

Our five brave 2014 Miracle Kids were also announced at the luncheon. They are children who have beat the odds and represent the 70,000 others who come to Golisano Children's Hospital every year for care:

Brynn Taylor

Andrew Lagares

Katie Foster

Blake Gauss

Chase Ayles

Please help us celebrate our Miracle Kids by participating in the Stroll for Strong Kids Walk and 5K Run May 31 and watch the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Telethon on News10NBC June 1.

Baby Girl Overcomes Multiple Medical Obstacles

Baby Girl Overcomes Multiple Medical Obstacles

An ovarian cancer survivor, Krystle Ellis didn’t think she was ever going to be able to have a baby. For her and her husband, Ricardo, the world changed, when they got the news in February 2012 that Krystle was pregnant. While the Brighton couple firmly believed the pregnancy was a miracle, they had no idea about the journey they had yet to face.
 
From her first ultrasound at UR Medicine’s Strong Memorial Hospital, Krystle knew something was wrong. The scan showed that baby Brooke’s neck was hyper-extended and her brain and musculoskeletal system weren’t developing correctly. Krystle also had a uterine fibroid tumor that was sitting on top of Brooke’s head, taking up most of her space in the womb.
