Officials cut the ribbon on Spectrum Health's new South Buffalo location Wednesday.

Spectrum Health and Human Services on Wednesday cut the ribbon on the new location of its South Buffalo Counseling Center, now at 2412 Seneca St.

The counseling center was 30 years old and is one of two Spectrum Health clinics in Buffalo. The other is downtown.

The new location has 30 employees to offer behavioral health and addiction counseling. It features a special waiting room for children and their families, plus comfortable meeting and treatment rooms. The new site is also larger, offers more parking and easy access to a Metro Bus line.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony included a display of Spectrum Health's new Mobile Unit for Erie County, meant to provide services to rural communities where access to services is challenging.
