Another example of the world class healthcare we have here in Rochester. We sometimes take for granted how lucky we are to have this amazing medical research and facilities right in our backyard that many travel hundreds of miles to Rochester for.

A groundbreaking for the new Golisano Autism Center and the University of Rochester Medicine’s Golisano Pediatric Behavioral Health & Wellness Building is scheduled for Friday morning, and new renderings show how the completed facility will look.

Located at the Al Sigl campus, the two-story building is designed to provide an array of autism and pediatric mental health services under one roof.

The center is funded from a $5 million gift from businessman-philanthropist Tom Golisano and a $5 million investment from the University of Rochester.

The 72,000-square-foot project will bring the two centers to a single campus. The founders include the Al Sigl Community of Agencies, Autism Up, and CP Rochester.

Project organizers say the need for pediatric mental health services us also on the rise.

The University of Rochester Medicine’s Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry conducted 40,000 outpatient visits in 2018, up from 12,000 visits two decades ago.

This is very good that something is being done about educating people about Autism and Autism Spectrum Disorders and other diagnoses out there and how we can help people here in the Greater Rochester area so that what happened to Trevyan Rowe does not happen to anyone else. Very sorry to Trevyan's family but I'm glad that U of R and other organizations are stepping up to do something to advocate for educating people to be respectful to those with Autism as well as other disorders.

Here in Fairport we had kids with all sorts of abilities and disabilities. Some of my friends I still talk to today are very successful in their careers and are autistic and are nice people. I'm sure there is a lot to be learned around Monroe County!
