Responding to the growing desire of patients to find health services in locations close to where they live and work, Kenmore Mercy Hospital, a Catholic Health hospital, will open the doors to its newest outpatient facility, the Williamsville Diagnostic Center, during a Blessing Ceremony and Grand Opening on Wednesday, February 4 at 5:30 p.m. Located at 400 International Drive, the center is designed to meet the needs of patients and physicians throughout Amherst, Williamsville and Buffalo’s northern suburbs offering a variety of imaging, laboratory and rehabilitation services.
“We serve a large population of patients throughout the Northtowns and this facility will give them a more comfortable and convenient location to receive their care,” said James Millard, Kenmore Mercy’s new President & CEO. “We also hope to attract new patients from the local community who can take advantage of the services we offer.”
Housed on the first floor of the same building as the Brain & Spine Center, the state-of-the-art, 18,000 square foot facility designed by Kideney Architects, features the most advanced imaging technology. This includes Ultrasound, X-Ray, Bone Density (DEXA), CT Scan and MRI. In addition, the Williamsville Diagnostic Center offers Partners In Rehab rehabilitation services, including physical, occupational and speech therapies, as well as full service blood draw.
The $3.8 million outpatient center is one of several projects in the works for Kenmore Mercy. In the coming weeks, the hospital will open a new rear entrance featuring convenient parking and drop-off; and a multipurpose endovascular lab offering the latest minimally-invasive procedures to better serve stroke patients or those with other vascular conditions.
