Foundation pledges $50,000 to the new Golisano Children's Hospital

On September 10, 2012, the University of Rochester made history as it broke ground on its largest capital project ever, the new Golisano Children's Hospital. A committee of Board Members from the Michael Napoleone Memorial Foundation met with various officials from the University of Rochester to discuss the giving options available to the Foundation. The Board of Directors voted to donate $50,000 towards a new Child Life Office for pediatric cancer children. The new $145 million building, located on Crittenden Blvd. and attached to the Medical Center and Strong Memorial Hospital, will have eight floors, and approximately 245,000 sq. feet of space dedicated to children and their families. It will feature 52 private rooms, an expanded Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and various spaces designed to meet the needs of children and their families.
