Women and Children's Hospital of Buffalo has opened a new clinic on the campus of Erie County Medical Center, with a focus on women's health.

The new East Side Women's Health Center of Women & Children's Hospital on Grider Street is housed in a separate building from ECMC, formerly home to the Buffalo Community Health Center.

The extension clinic, approved by state officials in late May, will provide prenatal and primary medical care outpatient services. Total project cost was $252,724.

With five exam rooms and a multi-treatment room, the clinic will specialize in obstetrics and gynecology, providing exams, walk-in pregnancy testing and prenatal care. The site will be staffed by physicians, women's health nurse practitioners and other staff.

It is the third women's health center for Women & Children's, which also operates a center on its main campus and another at DeGraff Memorial Hospital in North Tonawanda.

The clinic shares a building with UB Family Medicine's new Grider Family Health Center.
