GOOD DEED DOERS VISIT UPSTATE: Upstate Cancer Center patients got a bit of sunshine indoors recently thanks to preschoolers at Childtime of Liverpool. Their teachers have been teaching students about community and acts of kindness. At summer camp they learned about the Centra New York community and how people play different roles to help others. They chose Upstate to give back to and wanted to put a smile on someone’s face with gift bags after a day of treatment.
CHECKING OUT THE NEW DIGS: Employees check out the new registration and waiting area for Upstate University Hospital during a sneak preview, held earlier this week. The new space is part of a major overhaul of the hospital lobby designed to make the services used most by patients and families the easiest to access.
