Billionaire Tom Golisano announced another significant donation Thursday to the hospital that bears his name.
Golisano is donating $20 million to go towards building a new $134 million children's hospital dedicated to the care of sick and injured kids.
“A new facility is necessary to keep pace with medical and technological advancements and meet the modern standards of a children’s hospital,” said Tom Golisano. “I am pleased to provide this gift to help construct a new, next-generation hospital to provide the highest quality care to children throughout the region.”
The new Golisano Children’s Hospital will become a single building adjacent to Strong Memorial, consolidating units that care for admitted children.
It will include a new 60 bed neonatal intensive care unit, pediatric imaging, and 56 private pediatric rooms.
