It's something you don't often see here in Western New York. Construction of a brand new hospital. It's happening right now on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.
The new Gates Vascular Institute will open soon, with a modern design and top-notch medical equipment. Its emergency room is already operating, and offering a whole new experience for patients and staff. Eyewitness News Anchor Joanna Pasceri has the story.
The new Gates Vascular Institute is impressive on the outside and even more amazing inside.
Its Emergency Department opened in November, replacing Buffalo General's E.R., 4x bigger with 56 rooms separated into four areas of treatment, heart, urgent care, general medicine, and behavioral.
The goal of the new Vascular Institute is to provide the best medical care available. Construction continues on the upper 8 floors, but when the Institute opens next month, all vascular treatment will shift here from Millard Fillmore Gates Circle Hospital.
