Focus: Facility Design

Gov. says Buffalo children's hospital reflects new mentality

October 26, 2017

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said the John R. Oishei Children's Hospital in Buffalo, N.Y., reflects a new mentality focused on the future, according to an article on The Buffalo News website.

The hospital it is replacing, Women & Children’s, was the first pediatric hospital in New York State. The new $270 million building incorporates modern features that reflect advances in healthcare design.

The new facility will have neonatal intensive care unit with private rooms instead of an open-floor plan, widespread adoption of couplet care, in which mothers and newborns remain together for the entire hospital stay, and a revised layout for same-day surgery. 

The 12-floor, 185-bed facility also includes the regional perinatal center for neonatal intensive care and regional pediatric trauma center.
