John R. Oishei Children's Hospital
For more than 125 years, John R. Oishei Children's Hospital has been the regional center for comprehensive and state-of-the-art pediatric trauma, surgical and medical care, including neonatal, perinatal and obstetrical services. As one of only 43 freestanding children's hospitals in the nation - and the only in New York State - the entire facility was built with children and families in mind. The 12-floor 185-bed modern facility is an integral part of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, linking with Buffalo General Medical Center, Gates Vascular Institute, the new Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Services at the University at Buffalo and more. The hospital enjoys a worldwide reputation for innovation and research and also provides highly specialized care and treatment through a broad array of outpatient services.
Oishei Children's Hospital ensures pediatric and maternal services remain available for patients in the Western New York region. The vision is to be recognized as the innovator, the highest quality, highest value provider and partner, and the regional referral center for women and children's health care for Kaleida Health, Western New York and beyond. It is the only access point for pediatric critical care, Level IV neonatal intensive care, and the Level I Regional Pediatric Trauma Center in and for Western New York. As the regional perinatal center, the sickest babies and children come to the hospital for care, either directly or through transfers from other hospitals. Without the resources available at Oishei Children's Hospital, these young patients would have to travel out of area for care.
