Another positive development project for downtown Buffalo: Sheehan Memorial Hospital has been sold and will be used for several medical purposes. The McGuire Development Corp. bought the shuttered hospital on Michigan Avenue out of bankruptcy for $2 million.
The company plans to bring in the Greater Buffalo United Accountable Health Network, part of the Urban Family Practice Group. Another expected tenant is UNYTS, the upstate New York transplant services company. McGuire may also move its certified nursing training program to the facility.
These are all stellar tenants and will bring new life to a proud facility that had slowly shut down in recent years. Its proximity to the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus adds to the growing science and medical based economy the city is developing.
