Health-care staffing firm moving to Amherst and growing

A Utah-based health-care staffing firm is moving and growing its Western New York office, leasing the bulk of an Amherst office building in the Aubudon area near University at Buffalo’s North Campus.

Park City-based Supplemental Health Care has signed a deal to occupy 35,000 square feet of space at 95 John Muir Drive for seven years for the local office of its nursing division. Interior work is already underway to accommodate the company, which will eventually have 150 employees there, said building owner Bernard Birnbaum of Pittsford, outside Rochester.

The company is relocating from its current space at 2005 Sheridan Drive in the Town of Tonawanda.

Built in 1991, the one-story building sits on 3.7 acres, with 40,912 square feet in all. It used to house collections agency Redline Recovery Services LLC, but that firm left a year ago. “We came to an understanding,” Birnbaum said. “This is a better use of the property.”

The remainder of the building is occupied by Buffalo Centre for the Treatment of Eating Disorders. The property has been on the market for lease for a while. “It’s a pretty good-sized office deal,” said broker Robert Nuchereno, of Arista Development.

Founded in 1984 to provide traveling psychiatric and operating room nurses and technicians to health-care organizations, Supplemental has expanded its services and footprint, and now places nurses, therapists, imaging specialists, physicians and physician assistants in medical facilities nationwide.

It has four national divisions and more than 60 local offices across the country, including a separate allied professionals office at 5570 Main St. in Williamsville.
