Upstate Medical Moves 400 Workers to Downtown Syracuse
Monday, December 5, 2016
Upstate Medical University has completed the relocation of 400 employees to the Galleries of Syracuse downtown.
The final phase of the move took place Friday. The employees work on the fourth and fifth floors of the Galleries in space formerly occupied by the Onondaga County public library which now has a street level entrance. Upstate is leasing the space from the county.
Most of the employees manage Upstate's finances and computer systems. They had been working out of offices in Widewaters Parkway in DeWitt. Sixty employees with Upstate's Patient Access Services department also moved to the Galleries from 250 Harrison St., a few blocks away.
Another 24 hospital purchasing employees who remain at the Widewaters office will move downtown over the winter to Upstate's Sarah Loguen Center at 650 S. Salina St.
