Partnership's 'Results Roadshow' Heads to BNMC | Business
Progress is abounding in Buffalo Niagara - there's reinvestment on Buffalo's Main Street, growth in Niagara Falls, waterfront development we can all be proud of, and continued construction on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.
With so much activity to keep track of, the Buffalo Niagara Partnership recently established its “Results Roadshow” series designed to give the Buffalo Niagara business community a behind-the-scenes look at some of the good things that are happening in the region – many the result of sustained advocacy efforts by the Partnership and other economic development partners.
An initial session was held at Canalside, which recently hosted its busiest summer on record and is now home to significant construction acticity, with much more in the works. In RR: Waterfront, participants met with waterfront leaders and saw projects up close before attending a reception at the new Liberty Hound restaurant.
The next installment in the Partnership's Results Roadshow is scheduled for Tuesday, October 30th, held on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus and sponsored by the Buffalo News, National Grid and Univera Healthcare. BNMC, home to both collaboration and innovation, now hosts more than 12,000 workers - a number that will surge to 17,000 in the next five years.
Dr. Nick Hopkins, Chief of Service for Neurosurgery at Kaleida Health and Pat Whalen, Chief Operating Officer for Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, will brief participants on future plans and provide insights as to what's worked so far. A walking tour of Ellicott Street - BNMC's "Main Street" - will be followed by an in-depth tour of the Gates Vascular Institute, BNMC's newest addition.
Following the tours, a networking cocktail party will be held inside the Innovation Center, a former industrial building that now incubates dozens of start up companies.
According to Partnership Vice President Craig Turner, RR: BNMC is a good opportunity for newcomers who have heard about growth on the medical campus and are still curous. "If you haven’t visited the Medical Campus yet, now’s your chance to catch up on the progress happening right now. Things are changing every day and you can see our region's future unfolding right in front of us," he said.
