Business First story from a couple fixBuffalo readers -
Kaleida Health is hoping to receive state approval next week on a 300-bed skilled nursing facility adjacent to the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.
The state Hospital Review and Planning Council is set to consider Kaleida’s certificate-of-need application at its Dec. 11 meeting. The project was recommended for approval by the project review committee in late November. The certificate of need must be approved before the project can be built.
The proposed facility at Michigan Avenue and North Street will include 200 long-term-care beds, 40 memory-care beds, 30 subacute-care beds, 20 pediatric-care beds and 10 ventilator-care residents’ beds. The design calls for four connected buildings, each with four stories, and an outdoor greenspace for residents and visitors.
Pending state approval, site work is slated to begin next March, with completion and occupancy by May 2011 – in time to meet the state’s deadline for shutting down Millard Fillmore Gates Circle Hospital [read the rest].
Interesting push East across Michigan Avenue. Kaleida's plans would line up with additional developments in the immediate neighborhood at the North/Michigan intersection. See - The Suburbanization of Michigan Avenue, July 2006 - and of course on the other corner is the new $40 million City Honors project.
