Construction on Children's Hospital to be done by end of summer

Construction on the 12-story John R. Oishei Children's Hospital is nearing the home stretch.

Work by Turner Construction Co. on the 183-bed hospital in the heart of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus is expected to be done by late summer.

"We expect construction to be wrapped up by the end of August, with training and orientation of employees in September and October," Kaleida Health spokesman Michael P. Hughes said.

The new hospital, operated by Kaleida, is at 818 Ellicott St. and will replace Women & Children's Hospital on Bryant Street when it opens on campus in November.

The exact move-in date will be announced once work on the new facility is completed at the end of summer.
