Buffalo, NY Picone Construction Corp. has begun the expansion of Sisters Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) after their wall-breaking ceremony held January 25 at 2157 Main St. The new $8.8 million NICU is scheduled to open later this year, and will enable the hospital to expand its current NICU from 20 to 40 beds. The additional 21,000 s/f NICU will be located adjacent to the hospital’s inpatient maternity unit and newborn nursery, creating a centralized location for mother-baby care.
Construction plans additionally include: utilization of existing space which will not interrupt care provided in the current NICU; single family rooms to enhance individual care; large central technology hub; dedicated “parents-only” space for overnight accommodations for families; and reduced light and sound control to create a more soothing environment for premature babies.
The architect of record is Kideney Architects.
