UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine has expanded clinical space at Amherst Health Center.
The 5,700-square-foot expansion took place on the second floor of the building at 4949 Harlem Road. It included the addition of 12 exam rooms, a third X-ray room and more casting services. Doctors and researchers that occupied the space have joined the administrative team in the Cheektowaga office.
“The addition came at a good time because this time of year we tend to see a lot of sports injuries, slips and falls that need urgent attention,” said certified public accountant Mike Rogers, the physician group’s finance and operations director. “We now have dedicated space for UB OrthoCare, which allows rapid access to our practice.”
Additionally, patients will now have greater access to UB OrthoCare specialists who treat a variety of urgent orthopedic injuries.
OrthoCare hours extend to 9 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays.
“This was a great opportunity for us and for our patients,” said Dr. Brian McGrath, the physician who spearheaded the expansion effort. “We were able to relocate our office staff to allow for more exam rooms and give our patients greater access to the physicians. It’s a win all around.”
Added Rogers, “Before the expansion, we didn’t have exam rooms available for several of our Buffalo and Orchard Park-based physicians to see their patients in the Northtowns. Now we do. The expansion also provides clinical space for the three orthopedic surgeons that joined our practice this year.”
