On Friday, September 22, staff and project team members of Women & Children's Hospital of Buffalo (WCHOB) conducted a patient transport simulation from Women & Children's Hospital of Buffalo to the new Oishei Children's Hospital (OCH) in preparation for the impending hospital move in November.

When the new John R. Oishei Children's Hospital (OCH) opens in November, a room on the sports-themed tenth floor for young medical surgical patients will have a nameplate near the door recognizing the Grand Island community. As a community, Grand Island raised $25,000 for OCH and is the only community to have a room named after them as part of the hospital's "Complete a Room with Care" campaign.

Join KISS 98.5 radio personality Janet Snyder each Wednesday morning at 8:45 to hear the latest updates on the Oishei Children's Hospital from physicians, administrators, donors and families. Learn about the exciting differences it will make in the care and treatment of children throughout the region and how the hospital is raising the bar in maternal and pediatric care.

With 45 years under her belt, Donna Alessi holds the title of the longest-tenured neonatal ICU nurse at Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo. While medical advancements have changed many outcomes for the better, Donna’s dedication to providing steadfast love to the hospital’s tiniest patients has never wavered. From caring for babies within the hospital walls, to starting programs which offer support to families after they leave – Donna’s compassion for the vulnerable is endless.

Oishei Children’s Hospital announced today the addition of Joe’s Deli to the Hospital’s dining options. Opening this November, the Buffalo-based deli known for their award-winning, specialty sandwiches, soups and wraps will provide healthy, homemade options from 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. daily.
