Ross Eye Institute and Calspan Development & Construction are breaking ground on June 9, 2022, at 11am to bring an unparalleled eye care practice to the town of Orchard Park. Constructing this new cutting-edge facility is an exciting advancement that will significantly benefit the Western New York Southern tier community. 

Through patient-focused care, innovation, and technology, this campus will provide a one-of-a-kind patient experience, with easy access to the full spectrum of eye care in one location.

The new office will boast over 18,000 square feet equipped with an imaging suite, procedure room, pediatric and optometry wings, and space to comfortably care for all of our patient's eye care needs. Community Bank will provide financing for the project.

"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."

Calspan Development & Construction has a proven track record of building medical campuses and was selected to partner with 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.
