So ambitious were the plans for Golisano Children’s Hospital that the project was conceived in two phases, to be completed over several years. Phase I wrapped up in July with completion of the eight-floor hospital tower, which includes the Walmart and Sam’s Club Pediatric Lobby, Gosnell Family Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, two inpatient floors, a dedicated pediatric imaging suite, Ronald McDonald Family Room, family lounges, and the two-story Simonetti play deck, to name just a few of its features.
Next up: Phase II, which includes construction of new pediatric operating rooms, surgical support space and an expanded Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). Each year more than 85,000 children from the 17-county Finger Lakes region and beyond come to Golisano Children’s Hospital – often seeking surgical services or complex care that can only be found at Golisano. The project will bring exciting and greatly needed new surgical and patient-care capabilities to the new children’s hospital.
