Paychex founder Tom Golisano has pledged $5 million to support construction of a new Pediatric Behavioral Health & Wellness Center.

The new building will be 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. The center will be staffed by a multidisciplinary team that includes child psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors, nurses, and more.

"Rochester - like much of the country - has seen a serious dearth of services and providers in this area," said Mark B. Taubman, M.D., CEO of the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC). "But this gift will allow us to essentially double the space that we have to care for children with emotional or behavioral needs."

The $10 million building will be located near the intersection of South Avenue and Science Parkway, next door to the planned location of the Golisano Autism Center.
