Knowing Changes Everything™

Knowledge is often the difference between wellness and illness. Between real answers and more "what-ifs." For our patients, it gives you the power to make smart healthcare choices. And us the ability to heal. So the more you understand your options at Upstate, the more involved you are in choices for the future, the greater the chance of positive outcomes— of changing everything. That is what we seek to convey in our branding campaign.

Golisano Children's Hospital

Perched in the top two floors of the colorful East Tower, the Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital centralizes pediatric care for the entire Central New York region. Each patient room is private, 240 square feet in size and equipped with more power outlets than the average home. Sleepers are also available to accommodate family members.

Upstate Breast Care Center

Central New York's best-known breast surgeon, Patricia J. Numann MD started the Breast Care Center in 1986, and it remains the dedicated comprehensive compassionate care center she envisioned.

The center offers evaluation and treatment of thyroid and parathyroid conditions, as well as a breast cancer program accredited by The American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer.
