Nappi Longevity Institute
The Longevity Institute at Upstate Medical University-- an eight-floor, over 300,000 square foot health and wellness complex—will be built at East Adams and Almond Streets, across from the Upstate Cancer Center in downtown Syracuse, New York.
It will house services related to healthy aging, including a focus on Alzheimer’s disease. In addition an array or wellness services will be available there under one roof, following the philosophy that preventive health and promotion of good health can help reduce hospitalization and emergency treatment.
Upstate received a $70.6 million grant as part of the Capital Restructuring Financing Program and Essential Health Care Provider Support Program, and an additional $75 million was allocated by the state. Sam and Carol Nappi of Jamesville donated $8 million that will support its creation and special focus. It’s the largest gift ever received by the Upstate Foundation. Ground breaking will begin in summer 2018.
