Future children’s hospital reaches new construction milestones

As we move into a season of growth and renewal, the construction of UR Medicine’s future Golisano Children’s Hospital, scheduled to open its doors in 2015, continues to progress in many ways. While the finishing touches are being put on the building’s exterior, the installation of the interior details is really just beginning – and we can’t wait to see how they look!

In addition to the exterior framing being close to complete, the interior framing is also almost finished. One of the most exciting steps in the building’s recent progress is the start of the bridge connection, which will allow families, faculty, and staff to commute from the children’s hospital into Strong Memorial Hospital, and vice versa. The bridge is expected to be completed in late summer or early fall.

The wall of what will be the main lobby is on the right. The secret play area will be between the two frames.

The new hospital will  provide our region’s families with the best environment for healing, with places for gathering, respite, resting, and playing. Some of the funnest features will be the different play areas, including a secret play pod, named by generous children’s hospital supporters Wayne and Beverly LeChase,  in one of the walls of the main lobby. Other play spaces include a special area for teens, multiple interactive games, a play deck and more.
