Wilson Foundation Gives $500,000 to General Pediatrics
Inspired by the generosity and legacy of its founders, Joseph C. Wilson '31 and Peggy Wilson, the Wilson Foundation has awarded $500,000 to establish The Wilson Community Pediatrics Fund in the Division of General Pediatrics at UR Medicine's Golisano Children's Hospital. This special gift to The Meliora Challenge: The Campaign for the University of Rochester will allow the division unparalleled opportunity to advance and accelerate projects on behalf of our region's most needy children and families.
"Our work is all preventative. Some improves care in the short term, but a lot will improve quality and save costs long-term," said Peter Szilagyi, M.D., M.P.H., chief of the Division of General Pediatrics. "This gift will allow us to add resources to existing programs and to enter new programs, and we will leverage it to try and bring in a lot more."
