"Leaders from Grand Island schools, government, businesses, civic groups, and medicine met at Grand Island High School to celebrate completion of the GI Challenge, an effort to raise $25,000 to establish a room of care at the new John R. Oishei Children's Hospital in Buffalo."
"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."
BUFFALO, N.Y. -- As Women and Children's Hospital prepares to move to its new location in the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, families and staff are finding ways to say goodbye to the old facility.
Jaros also said while it's sad to see the hospital's time at its old location come to a close, there is also a lot of excitement about the new facility. The major move is expected to start in the beginning of November and the hospital will be renamed the John R. Oishei Children's Hospital. Outpatient clinics moved to the new Oishei Children's Hospital Outpatient Center in January.
"[the parking shortage on and near the Medical Campus is] a good problem to have, but it’s also one that needs to be resolved quickly.
The source of the stress once again is the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, which has been growing aggressively and isn’t done yet. That’s great news for a city that was on the skids for decades and is now in expansion mode. But with thousands of people working on the Medical Campus, conflict has arisen between nearby residents and employees on the hunt for free parking."
First stent reconstruction operation of its kind performed by two medical teams from the Gates Vascular Institute and the Women & Children’s Hospital saved the life of 7-year-old dog bite victim, Kaeden.
"Kaeden's case, at least for me, is an excellent example of the interplay of excellence between the hospitals at Kaleida. This is why you need a children's hospital," Levy said. "... Without that interplay we would not have these miraculous and fabulous outcomes like we had with Kaeden."
