The 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.
The 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.
