"Kiss 98.5 played the most beautiful sound you’ve ever heard this morning – the new Brahms Lullaby to announce the first baby was born at Oishei Children’s Hospital.
"'Move Day' began at 7 a.m. Friday for the staff and patients of Women & Children's Hospital, as they take the 1.2 mile journey to the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus and settle into their new home at the Oishei Children's Hospital. “So far so good,” said Kaleida Health CEO Jody Lomeo, describing the progress of the move.
"The $270 million John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital will open next week on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, capping off years of planning to replace Women & Children’s Hospital on Bryant Street.
A marathon one-day move will begin before dawn Nov. 10 to move patients and staff into the 185-bed hospital 1.2 miles away at 818 Ellicott St."
"The new John R. Oishei Children's Hospital that will open this week on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus exemplifies state-of-the-art pediatric care.
The hospital tower offers the latest in medical technology and thoughtful design. A connected outpatient center replaces dated facilities that were costly to maintain and no longer met patients' expectations.
The new hospital, together with a new University at Buffalo medical school under construction along Main Street, will solve a big piece of the puzzle on a medical campus trying to attract life sciences companies to start or move here."
"As of today, the majority of Women & Children's Hospital of Buffalo's outpatient clinics will be open and fully operational to patients and families in their new location. The first two outpatient clinic moves were completed in January and April.
On November 10, the historic relocation will conclude with the move of Women & Children's Hospital of Buffalo's inpatient services and emergency department to Oishei Children's Hospital. "
"Work on the new John R. Oishei Children's Hospital is 95 percent complete and work crews are down to the nitty gritty of punch-list items on all floors of the $270 million facility that is scheduled to open in November on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.
Kaleida Health spokesman Michael P. Hughes said the hospital is no longer a "hard hat" zone and has received its certificate of occupancy from the city."
"The developer behind the Reikart House, (the 92-room boutique hotel that is the first in New York State to operate as part of Marriott International’s Tribute Portfolio, a network of “upper upscale” independent hotels), and the Hyatt Place hotel on the same campus in Snyder decided months ago to tear down the former Sonoma Grille building and to construct a new restaurant on the site.
Building from scratch on the property allows Iskalo Development to construct a restaurant that makes better use of the available space for the new restaurant, named Jazzboline, said David Chiazza, Iskalo's executive vice president."
"BUFFALO, NY- If you've delivered a baby at Women & Children's Hospital, you know it's a long standing tradition to play the Brahms Lullaby each time a little one is born.
With the new John R. Oishei Children's Hospital set to open in November, officials there are looking to give birth to a new tradition. The hospital is kicking off a contest asking WNYers to record and submit their own rendition of the classic song."
