Kaleida Health, founded in 1998, is a not-for-profit healthcare network that manages five hospitals in the Buffalo–Niagara Falls metropolitan area.
It runs the Buffalo General Medical Center, a hospital on the premises of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. It was founded on its current site in the 19th century and has underwent expansions ever since, including one in the 1986 that added a 16-story tower to the main complex. The hospital had 24,000 inpatient visits in 2016. The interior lobby was remodeled, and the exterior of the building was repainted in 2017 to match the color scheme of newer facilities on the campus, at a cost of $2 million.
Kaleida also runs the John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital, a children’s hospital that is also at the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. It opened in November 2017 and cost $270 million to build. There are 185 beds, including 64 neonatal units, fourteen operating rooms, an indoor garden, and skyway connections to neighboring Buffalo General Hospital and Conventus. The hospital broke ground in 2015 and was designed by Shepley Bulfinch and built by Turner Construction.
