UBMD opens new outpatient center on BNMC

The ribbon was cut Thursday night at the UBMD Outpatient Center at Conventus, bringing another new facility to the growing Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.

"To me it's an extremely attractive place to come. It's brand new. There's a lot of excitement for us in bringing people in. We've actually brought on support providers," said Dr. Anne Curtis, Vice President of UBMD Physicians' Group. "But will the patients be more comfortable? I certainly hope so. It's meant to be an inviting place for patients and seek their medical care."

Curtis said the center brings Buffalo medical care into the modern age.

"I don't know if you could go across the country and see any major academic health care center that doesn't have an outpatient center there and we were lacking that," she said.

Curtis said the facility will bring more convenience and better care to patients.

"We can refer to each other within the same system. We can have patients, if they need to get testing done, it can either be done right here or we can have the patients go over to Buffalo General," she said. "So it's a sort of a one-stop shop for all health care needs."

UBMD is the region's largest medical group. Their new facility features 54,000 square feet of clinical space and will house 12 UBMD practices, among them Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Neurology, Orthopedics and Psychiatry.

Monday - Friday, 6 a.m. - 10 a.m.
