Unity Hospital Opens New Main Entrance

Unity Hospital in Greece officially opens its new main entrance and concourse this week. This marks completion of the next big milestone of the four-year $160 million Unity Hospital Modernization and Expansion Project.

The new main entrance includes an expanded canopied drop-off area, where wheelchair assistance is provided by Unity’s Guest Services team. Patients and visitors will enter the Hospital through the new Wolk Atrium, made possible by a generous donation from the Louis and Molly Wolk Foundation.

The main concourse includes a welcome/greeting station staffed by Guest Services volunteers. In addition to providing patient information, directions and escorts as needed, Guest Services provides concierge services to assist with hotel information, nearby dining venues and attractions for visitors who are not familiar with the area. A team of 130 volunteers provide these Guest Services at this new main entrance and at the existing South entrance of the Hospital that opened in 2012.

Also included in the concourse area are a several new seating areas as well as a coffee bar that offers hot and cold beverages and gourmet sandwiches and salads.

“We really wanted this main entrance to serve as a grand welcoming for our patients, visitors and guests,” said Bob Donahue, Vice President, Corporate Services. “We’ve brightened up the space, added trees, and many more special touches to provide a welcome and open, friendly environment.”

By May, the Expansion Project will be complete and will include major renovations and updates to Unity Hospital including:

• A new 4th floor with more inpatient beds
• Larger, all-new private rooms
• The Golisano Restorative Neurology & Rehabilitation Center
• Added capacity for heart care and joint replacement
• A new cafe and lobby
• More free parking
• Larger elevators and more of them
