Audubon Women's Medical Associates, the largest OB/GYN practice in the Northtowns, has moved into its new office in Amherst.
The practice had been located since 1993 in an 8,600-square-foot office at 1360 North Forest Road, near Maple Road, but sought more room to accommodate growth and new services provided by its employees. Audubon Women's Medical Associates has 33 employees and receives 32,000 patient visits annually.
The practice's developer, Kulback's, received permission to rezone 2 acres at 2240 North Forest Road, near Millersport Highway, and to construct a 14,500-square-foot building there.
Construction started in April and wrapped up in late September. The new offices opened Oct. 2, said Allison Raffaele, practice administrator, who added the building has led to shorter wait times and a boost in new patients. The practice is holding an open house and ribbon-cutting on Friday.
