M&T Bank pledges $100,000 to support the new Central New York Children’s Hospital at University Hospital
SYRACUSE, N.Y. — M&T Bank has pledged $100,000 in support of the Central New York Children’s Hospital at University Hospital by naming one of the nursing stations in the children’s hospital.
“M&T’s gift is a demonstration of the importance of a children’s hospital to Central New York,” said Gregory L. Eastwood, M.D., president of SUNY Upstate Medical University. “It is also another demonstration of M&T Bank’s continued commitment to our community.”
Construction of the children’s hospital is slated to begin in early 2005. Estimated to cost $50 million, it will occupy the top two floors of a six-floor vertical expansion of University Hospital’s East Wing, and is expected to open in December 2007. The children’s hospital will feature its own separate entrance providing a warm, child-friendly atmosphere for patients, families and visitors.
A $15 million capital campaign is currently under way to raise funds for additional equipment and programmatic features considered essential to the children’s hospital. The project will more than triple the 18,000 square feet currently allotted to pediatric services within University Hospital.
