Construction Watch: D’Youville College Health Professions Hub

D’Youville College’s Health Professions Hub is nearing completion at 301 Connecticut Street. The 58,751 sq.ft. Health Professions Hub is hailed a “first-of-its-kind” health center, the Hub offers innovative learning spaces, a workforce center, extensive virtual training resources, a demonstration kitchen, neighborhood cafe, public art, a pharmacy, rehabilitation and wellness center, and a clinic offering primary care.

Upon completion, the project will double the number of health students D’Youville graduates annually and help address the anticipated critical shortage of 10,000+ health professionals our region is expected to face come 2024.

The Hub will feature:
• The Sisters Health Center at D’Youville – a primary care clinic operated by Catholic Health
• A full-service pharmacy
• A health and wellness center featuring OT, PT, and chiropractic services
• An interprofessional education and cutting-edge, full-service simulation center
• The Center for Health Equity and Innovation for health professions education and healthcare innovation
• The Pathways Program (funded by the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation) – providing trainings, certificate, and degree programs for social mobility of the local population
• A demonstration kitchen and café
• High-tech classrooms, meeting rooms and open work spaces
• A state-of-the-art event center and community engagement space

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
