Growth of the new Golisano Children’s Hospital

After years of planning, ground was broken for the new Golisano Children’s Hospital in September 2012. In the following months the eight-story structure—designed by Ballinger Architects of Philadelphia, BR+A Engineers of Boston, ArtHouse Design of Denver, and SWBR Architects and Mauro Danforth of Rochester—arose on Crittenden Boulevard adjacent to the Medical Center and Strong Memorial Hospital. The construction project, managed by LeChase Construction LLC, has employed some 200 workers on a daily basis.

The ground floor of the new building will feature a two-story atrium, along with PET/MRI scanner and other imaging and diagnostic suites. The first floor includes siblings child care, a pediatric conference center and administrative suites. The third floor centers on the neonatal intensive care unit, and floors 7 and 8 contain patient rooms and the indoor playdeck. The fifth floor is dedicated to mechanical operations, unseen to the public, while the fourth and sixth floors will be built out as part of phase two. And the second floor? It was eliminated and replaced by a taller lobby area, to accommodate the differences in floor heights between the new structure and the adjacent hospital building.
