SUNY Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, N.Y., plans an $84 million, six-story vertical addition to its 356-bed University Hospital that would include a 50-bed, $34 million children's hospital on the top two floors. The lower floors would house cardiovascular, neurology and oncology units. The state has approved plans for the hospital to borrow $126 million through the bond market, and there will be a fund-raising effort for the children's hospital, spokesman Darryl Geddes said. The project is up for certificate-of-need review in October, Construction would begin in 2005, with the children's hospital slated to open in late 2007. -- by Cinda Becker
