1500 Broadway once was the home to the Dr. Matt Gajewski Health Services Center, which was closed in 2009 by Erie County. Four almost five years the building sat dormant. With an almost $3 million dollar investment by Erie County, the building was renovated and reopened in May as the Erie County Health Mall.
The Erie County Health Mall will serve as a one stop shop for primary care, OB-GYN, mental health and dental care. Tenants leasing the space in 1500 Broadway from Erie County include Lake Shore Behavioral Health, the University at Buffalo’s School of Dental Medicine, Catholic Health and Mid-Erie Counseling and Treatment Services.
This is great news for the neighborhood in two ways… it brings new life to the building and it also provides critical health services to an under-served area of the city.
Here is a video from the ribbon cutting from May:
