For nearly 125 years, Women & Children's Hospital of Buff alo provided world-class care to the moms, children and babies of Western New York. The 617,000-square-foot hospital prop- erty was comprised of seven interconnect- ed buildings constructed between 1917 and 1995. The campus had become cumber- some for circulation, the fl oor plates were ineffi cient and some buildings were aged past their utility. With the trend toward ambulatory care and a growing demand for expanded in- patient and outpatient services by Kaleida Health, the time had come to replace the 125-year-old campus. Shepley Bulfi nch was engaged to right- size, consolidate and relocate Women & Children's Hospital of Buff alo to the newly designed John R. Oishei Children's Hospital on the Buff alo Niagara Medical Campus in Buff alo, New York, and fully integrate the new facility with Buff alo General Medical Center, Gates Vascular Institute, the new Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University of Buff alo and other medical offi ce buildings. The opening of the hospital in November 2017 marked the completion of the $270-million, 410,000-square-foot health facility, New York State's only free- standing children's hospital — one of 43 nationwide. The 185-bed modern hospital is the regional center for comprehensive pediatric trauma, surgical and medical care, including neonatal, perinatal and obstetrical services. Named after Buff alo native, industrial- ist and philanthropist John R. Oishei, the 12-story Oishei Children's Hospital lever- ages existing logistical support services on campus including mechanicals, materials management and centralized clinical labs.
