Buffalo, NY (WBEN) - ECMC has broken ground on their new Emergency and Trauma centers.  At a news conference, ECMC announced that the new emergency center waiting room will be named the ‘OneBuffalo Waiting Room.’  The new part of the facility should be open by 2020.

The project will expand and modernize ECMC’s Emergency Department in a new, state-of-the-art building that will augment Emergency Department services via enhanced patient flow and other operational efficiencies, privacy, quality of care, treatment outcomes, and overall patient experience.  Current facility: 18.5% growth from 2010 through 2017.  Growth by 2024 is projected to be 75,319, a 30% increase from 2010. 

ECMC serves WNY's 8 county region and has nearly 70,000 Emergency Room visits and 18,000 patient discharges annually.
