Pediatric Patients Decorate Steel Beam at Hospital Celebration

Pediatric patients visited the construction site of the new Golisano Children’s Hospital Tuesday afternoon to celebrate that the final structure beams will be placed in the next week. Inpatients and outpatients had the opportunity to decorate a steel beam with their signatures and/or paint-slathered hand prints, and even foot prints, leaving their own personal touches on a piece of the new Golisano Children’s Hospital construction site at the University of Rochester Medical Center.

Patients decorated the beam, right outside the Wilmot Cancer Center Lobby, giving the construction workers a great view of who they are working so swiftly for.

In addition to colorful hand and foot prints, the celebration also included balloons, coloring books, construction tattoos, and hard hats. Sandy Strong and Nina F. Schor, M.D., Ph.D., William H. Eilinger chair of Pediatrics at URMC and pediatrician-in-chief of Golisano Children’s Hospital, also joined in the festivities. Read more.
