The new Café has doubled in size - from 4,472 square feet to over 9,000 square feet - to match the expanding size of the new Hospital that will be complete in 2014. The Café serves approximately 1,100 meals per day, servicing nearly 2,600 Unity employees on the Hospital campus.
This new bistro-style Café was created for the comfort and enjoyment of employees as visitors who need a comfortable space while waiting or in the course of visiting friends and loved ones.
I was pleased to present Theresa Bowick with the Get Outdoors Award from Parks and Trails New York yesterday at the State Capitol. Theresa started the Conkey Cruisers, a grassroots neighborhood bicycling group that rides along the El Camino Trail in the northeast part of the City of Rochester. Theresa started the Conkey Cruisers in hopes that they will inspire her neighbors to stay active, make healthy food choices, decrease obesity rates and create a positive image of their neighborhood. Congratulations to Theresa, and all of the members of the Conkey Cruisers, and thank you for your commitment to the City of Rochester!
