Upstate University Hospital is upgrading its pediatric emergency department, which will change the entire emergency room landscape at central New York’s biggest hospital.

Upstate pediatric emergency department chief Richard Cantor recently showed off the new unit, which is still under construction.

“This is the acute care, super sick kids are coming in here, and they’ll have direct line of sight from the nursing station, and you can see sliding glass doors, we have isolation rooms,” said Kantor.
