Progress continues as the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus continues its transformation into the regional hub for innovation, collaborative medicine and care. From new construction to cityscape improvements, the downtown neighborhood has become a booming community of business people, entrepreneurs, and medical professionals.
Collaboration has been a huge part of the success on the medical campus, and the UBMD Physicians’ Group has made the thriving medical community even stronger with the addition of its newest location in the Conventus building on Main Street.
