Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announces Kaleida Health has broken ground on the new John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital, a $270 million hospital on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.
The John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital is expected be complete by 2017. The project will right-size and consolidate services in a 12-floor, 183-bed, free-standing and modern facility.
This new project will replace the current Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo to become the only comprehensive pediatric healthcare facility for Western New York.
New York State will assist Kaleida Health in closing its current funding gap by providing $35 million for the project, including $15 million from the Buffalo Billion for infrastructure at the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus and up to $20 million from other State resources to support the new hospital.
