Rochester, N.Y.- A family with a long history of giving in the Rochester community has now made one of the largest donations to the Golisano Children’s Hospital since the hospital’s capital campaign began last year.
Georgia Gosnell has committed $5 million to name the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in the new Golisano Children’s Hospital at the University Of Rochester Medical Center.
The hospital’s new Gosnell NICU will include 60 beds both in the new building, and in the current space on the third floor of Strong Memorial Hospital.
The unit will provide intensive care to the region’s sickest babies in private rooms.
Renovations will be made to the current NICU space to deliver highly specialized care for babies who need less acute treatment.
Gosnell has also created two professorships within the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry in Quality and Safety and Palliative Care.
