About the Institute

The Nappi Wellness Institute is more than bricks and mortar, the building's thoughtful design and airy interiors help promote health and wellness in a beautiful setting close to home.

Instead of seeing specialists in a variety of locations, this facility hosts many key medical services in one location to improve access to care, provide an opportunity to address patient needs more seamlessly and foster greater collaboration and coordination of care between providers for patients. 

In addition to primary and specialty health care, the Nappi Institute also offers integrated social work services, nutrition counseling, palliative care and behavioral health care.

Dedication to Wellness

The Nappi Wellness Institute has been designed to improve patient experience, providers’ efficiency and everyone’s wellness. Thoughtful design elements are intended to bring us in-line with specifications for WELL Building Standards, developed by the International WELL Building Institute. By achieving this certification, Upstate seeks to optimize health and well-being in seven areas: air, comfort, fitness, light, mind, nourishment and water.

As the first WELL Certified building in Central New York, this is also one of a handful of certified healthcare facilities in the country. By planning to meet high standards for health and wellbeing, Upstate is reaffirming our commitment to our mission, and prioritizing the wellness of our patients and staff.

In addition, the newest facility on the Upstate downtown campus will also seek LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification. This green building certification program recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. To qualify, Upstate will achieve a certain number of credits that reflect cost and resource conservation in addition to promoting renewable, clean energy.
