Excelsior to break ground on new surgery center

Excelsior Orthopaedics will break ground Thursday on a $9.5 million expansion of its ambulatory surgery center on Sheridan Drive in Amherst.

Excelsior and Matrix Development plan to construct a one-story, 27,175-square-foot building on the southwest corner of their campus at 3915 Sheridan Drive, just west of Harlem Road.

The building would be more than three times larger than the existing Buffalo Surgery Center in the practice’s main building at 3925 Sheridan and would house clinical and surgical services in orthopedics, pain management, ophthalmology and gastroenterology, including adding eight new GI doctors. The move into the new facility would free up more space for exam rooms and other clinical services in the center’s current building.

The Amherst Town Board in May rezoned 1.1 acres on the property to make way for the project. Excelsior expects the new building to be finished by mid-January.
