Rochester General Hospital has received $100,000 from the Polisseni Foundation for construction of the new Constantino Patient Access Center.
The center is slated to open next year. It honors Richard Constantino M.D.
The Constantino Patient Access Center is to be located between the B. Thomas Golisano Pavilion and Emergency Center and the Polisseni Pavilion, dedicated in 2005 and named for the late Eugene Polisseni, a Paychex Inc. executive who passed away in 2001.
Constantino began his practice at Rochester General shortly after receiving his medical degree from the University of Rochester School of Medicine. He was appointed chief of ambulatory services in 1981, senior vice president of Rochester General in 1991 and president in 1997, the first physician to hold that post in 40 years.
