The 185-bed John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital replaces the city’s 125-year-old Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo. With a focus on patient and family comfort, the new 440,000 sq ft hospital features amenities such as a winter garden, a rooftop garden, and an all-weather solarium. An underground tunnel connects this twelve-story structure to the Buffalo General Medical Center (BGMC). SGH was the structural engineer for the project, including the structures for signage, and designed below-grade waterproofing for the tunnel.
