Buffalo, NY | 12/21/22 - The Ross Eye Institute will celebrate the grand opening of its new state-of-the-art facility on January 17, 2023, from 5-7 PM in the Sterling Commons Professional Park in Orchard Park, NY.

Calspan Development & Construction broke ground on the project in March of 2022 and successfully completed the turnkey project in just nine months.

This new Ross Eye facility will provide a one-of-a-kind experience offering patient-focused care, innovation, and advanced technologies. The expanded footprint is over 18,000 sq. ft. and includes an imaging suite, procedure room, pediatric and optometry wings, multiple rooms for patient care, and an onsite optical shop. This "one-stop shop" provides the full suite of optical care in one location to service the patient needs of the Southern tier community.  

"Our mission is to train the future eye doctors of WNY and develop future cures for eye disease while delivering the best care available to our patients," said Dr. James D. Reynolds, Professor and Chair of the U.B. Department of Ophthalmology. "This new practice site will dramatically improve our ability to recruit outstanding, new surgeons from across the nation and bring even more specialized expertise to our growing patient population."

Community Bank provided financing for the new facility.

Calspan Development & Construction has a proven track record of building outstanding medical campuses and was selected by the Ross Eye team to build this advanced, specialized eye care facility.

"We are thrilled to provide a world-class facility to the highly regarded university professors and academic surgeons at Ross Eye Institute," stated John Yurtchuk, President of Calspan Development & Construction.
