Home » About


The Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus is a dynamic consortium of world-class hospitals and health care facilities, exceptional education institutions, and innovative research institutions. Made up of 10 member institutions, the Medical Campus is home to hundreds of physicians, clinicians, scientists, and researchers, many of whom are world renowned in the practice of oncology, neurology, immunology, vascular surgery, personalized medicine, cardiology, and beyond. Our hospitals and clinics offer comprehensive care, research affiliations, and clinical trials.

The collaboration among our institutions combined with the significant research and clinical capabilities offered on the Medical Campus has led to the creation or co-location of more than 100 public and private companies including a dynamic and growing cluster of life sciences, bioinformatics, health care technology, manufacturing, energy, social innovation companies and not-for-profits organizations.

Working together has accelerated the ability of our member institutions to attract and recruit top medical, scientific, and academic talent; improved the health and well-being of our community and beyond; and enhanced Buffalo’s reputation as a destination for outstanding health care.
