The Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (BNMC) is a medical center of[citation needed] health care, life sciences research and medical education institutions, co-located on 120 acres (49 ha) in downtown Buffalo, New York. The BNMC was founded in 2001 by a consortium (including the University at Buffalo and Roswell Park Cancer Institute). This project comprises one of the five "Strategic Investment Areas" that make up Buffalo, NY's Queen City Hub Plan, the city's strategic plan for urban redevelopment.

History[edit]

In 2001, the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus was created by the institutions of a multiple block area in downtown Buffalo, New York.[1] Since then, the campus has grown to include over seven institutions, including the Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Buffalo General Hospital and the University at Buffalo.

Future[edit]

It is estimated that by 2017, combined with the initiatives of Roswell Park Cancer Institute and UB 2020, employment on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus could exceed 17,000, close to that of the Bethlehem Steel plant in Lackawanna, NY before its closure.[2]
