• ECMC Operating Room Expansion—Ambulatory Center

Buffalo, NY

Kideney Architects was hired by ECMC to design and construct an Operating Room Expansion on the 1st floor of the recently completed Dialysis Building. The project contains four state-of-the-art operating rooms, a 14-bed PACU, and dedicated sterile processing and staff areas. The surgery center opened with two operating rooms. In 2015 two more were fit-out without disruption to the center. The unit is connected to the main hospital by a 1st floor axial corridor that is built over the ground floor corridor.
