—Will be fully operational by January 2018
Construction of the new medical school building on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus is nearing completion.
Moving will begin in October, with the building in full operation by January 2018.
The new school offers a 178 percent increase in educational space.
The new medical school building, Kaleida’s John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital and Conventus building —all nearing completion—are interconnected, eliminating redundancies.
Twelve practice plans of UBMD physicians’ group will co-locate on the fourth floor of the Conventus building. Patients will be seen there starting in March, when the building opens.
Conventus’ fifth floor will house academic offices for pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatric neurology and pediatric surgery.
Offices currently located at Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo on Bryant Street will move to the Conventus building in conjunction with the opening of the Oishei Children’s Hospital, scheduled for November.
