Greater Buffalo United Accountable Healthcare Network (GBUAHN) has scheduled a groundbreaking for its $5 million, 40,000-square-foot medical facility. Shovels will go in the ground on Wednesday, August 3, 2016, (12:00 noon) at 505 7th Street on the city’s lower West Side. According to GBUAHN, this is the singular largest commercial development on the lower West Side in the last 25 years. The medical campus will offer residents a full range of healthcare services, to a neighborhood that is purportedly lacking in such amenities.
The building will feature a variety of physicians’ and specialists’ offices, a cancer treatment center, nutrition services, a fitness and wellness center, pharmacy, ambulatory surgery center, imaging center, laboratory, and a 24-hour call center.
“This will be an exciting addition to our community,” said Raul Vazquez, MD, GBUAHN chief executive officer. “It will help decrease the fragmented healthcare that has been at our end of the city for a long time.”
Along with a litany of health services, the project stands to infuse $11 million annually into the local economy, while generating 100 new jobs, The center anticipates on servicing 50,000 people a year.
“Now residents will have access to a ‘one-stop-shop’ that can take care of all of their healthcare and basic needs. It’s one of the most needed projects to ever come to Buffalo’s West Side,” said Vazquez.
The facility is scheduled for completion in spring 2017.
