Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital celebrates first year
Pediatric admissions at Upstate rose 39 percent in the first year of operation of the Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital. From September 2009 to September 2010, the number of pediatric cases increased to 4,150, up from 2,984 from September 2008 to September 2009. In addition, the hospital cared for children from 43 of New York’s 62 counties.
Officials say the children’s hospital has helped the recruitment of numerous pediatric specialists, including a pulmonologist, gastroenterologist and two pediatric surgeons who joined the medical staff this month.
Thomas R. Welch, M.D., chair of the pediatrics department at Upstate Medical University, said the children’s hospital has brought greater interest from new doctors who are looking for a place to do their residency. Residency applications are coming from as far away from California, he said.
The Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital featuring 71 private patient rooms with in-room sleep accommodations for families, plus a host of amenities, including lounges, playrooms, café, solarium, performance and family resource center, opened Sept. 23, 2009.
