Family Resource Center
The Golisano Children’s Hospital Family Resource Center (FRC) is a unique service of the Upstate Health Sciences Library. As part of the outreach department, the FRC serves patients and family members of Golisano Children’s Hospital by providing them with medical reference services, access to specialized medical literature, programming, concierge services, computer access and tech support.
Designed as a cozy and welcoming space, the FRC represents Upstate’s system-wide commitment of service to its community while providing patients and families with a space that is familiar and enjoyable. At the Family Resource Center you will meet our Clinical Reference Librarian, caring library staff, and helpful volunteers. Our primary mission is to provide health information services and resources to our patients, families, and community members so that they are better equipped to make informed health decisions.
FRC services are free and include the lending of fiction and nonfiction books, multimedia resources, video games, and medical texts. While visiting, patients and families are encouraged to enjoy our in-house game console, television, craft area, and business center (complete with computers and printer/fax/scanner).
