Building a Healthy Future

Thompson Health's Expansion and Renovation Project: Project Excel

A $43.5 million expansion and renovation of the existing F.F. Thompson Hospital—slated for completion in 2012—centers around the Constellation Center for Health and Healing, a 61,000-square foot, two-story addition on the north end of the hospital. In addition, Project Excel will renovate 42,000 square feet of space within the existing hospital.

The improvements involved will:

  • Keep world-class medical facilities in Canandaigua, enabling residents to access the care they need, close to home
  • Increase patient comfort and confidentiality
  • Allow Thompson to continue to attract and retain the best physicians
  • Create efficiencies that will reduce costs, speed care and promote quicker healing

Linda Farchione, President and CEO of Thompson Health, says Project Excel is in keeping with the legacy of caring founded by philanthropist Mary Clark Thompson, who established the original hospital on North Main Street more than a century ago.

“From the very beginning, Thompson Hospital has served as the center of a spectrum of healthcare services for thousands of residents and tourists in the Finger Lakes region,” Farchione says. “Through the generations, the hospital has adapted to the changing needs of our community, and it is time to do so once again.
