The Campaign for the new John R. Oishei Children's Hospital
Expanded services at Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, along with continued trends of more patients receiving care in an ambulatory setting, were major factors considered by the Physician-led Steering Committee while reviewing previous campus plans (Hodge Avenue) and developing its proposal for the BNMC location.
Construction of the ambulatory care center is expected to begin after site remediation in 2012 with a time line for construction completion of 18 months. Ciminelli Real Estate (the developer) is proposing to build approximately 500,000 sq. ft. of environmentally friendly medical office space (including underground parking), 85,000 sq. ft. of which will be Women & Children’s Hospital space and the ambulatory care center. The ambulatory care center will serve children and adults. Planning is also underway to build the new hospital on the BNMC.
The Physician-led Steering Committee has completed work with Sg2, an internationally known health care analytics organization, to forecast the WNY market and future trends of pediatric and women’s care. Additionally, this committee has selected Shepley Bulfinch Richardson & Abbott of Boston, MA, one of the country’s top pediatric healthcare, to design the new Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo.
The hospital’s Physician-led Steering Committee is comprised of more than four dozen physicians, representing a broad section of the community, including University and private practice. A vision and mission for the ambulatory care center and new hospital has been established by the physician-led steering committee to provide direction for facility projections using market and other data.
Shepley Bulfinch Richardson & Abbott of Boston, MA, one of the country's top pediatric healthcare architects, has been selected for the physician-led plan to construct a new Hospital on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.
