Golisano Pediatric Behavioral Health & Wellness Center
SEI Design Group was awarded the contract to construct a new Pediatric Behavioral Health & Wellness Center in Rochester, New York.
The 38,000 square foot facility is the primary outpatient location for the Children’s Hospital’s Pediatric Behavioral Health & Wellness program which treats children with depression, anxiety, psychosis, substance abuse, PTSD, and other behavioral and emotional conditions. Program Stakeholders include: Pediatric Outpatient (19,000 sf) and Child Partial Hospitalization Program (19,000 sf); The new Behavioral Health & Wellness Center shares a site with the Golisano Autism Center at the northeast comer of South Avenue and Science Parkway.
Unique challenges for this project included building directly next to an existing structure, anti-ligature design solutions, obtaining zoning amendments from the City of Rochester Planning Commission, and ongoing coordination of design and construction with the other building’s Owner, Architect, and Construction teams.
The total project budget of $10 million included construction, site development and incidental costs (contingencies, professional fees, FF&E, etc.).
The new facility opened on June 18, 2020 with an official ribbon cutting ceremony. It provides the greater Rochester community a new, critically needed home for child and adolescent behavioral health services.
