Positive Declaration and Public Scoping

Erie County - The Roswell Park Cancer Institute, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Roswell Park Cancer Institute Clinical Science Center (CSC) Project may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. A public scoping session will be held on February 7, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Gaylord/Cary Conference Room, Research Studies Center, Carlton and Elm Streets, Buffalo, NY. The action involves the Roswell Park Cancer Institute plans to construct a Clinical Science Center next to its existing Main Hospital. The 11 story CSC building will be physically connected and functionally integrated with Roswell's existing hospital and research complex. Space to accommodate medical staff and to care for patients is vital to enable the Institute to continue providing high quality cancer care services. The CSC will also help to meet the community's need for preventive services, such as mammography screenings, that currently cannot be provided due to the high patient demand on the existing Roswell facilities. The proposed project will be home to new patient screening space, outpatient clinics, team diagnostic space, and additional clinical administrative spaces.

Completion of the Clinical Science Center will enable Roswell to improve delivery of care and comfort to patients by increasing size and efficiency in the Chemotherapy Infusion Clinic. It will also allow Roswell to re-balance critical hospital space by removing ancillary clinical administrative functions from the Main Hospital and allowing clinical services to expand. The project will also provide sufficient office and meeting space for physicians, patient education, and survivorship programs, including counseling and support functions. In addition, it will provide on-campus mammography screenings for the community. After the Chemotherapy Infusion Clinic, Breast Clinic, and other programs move to the new CSC building, space will be freed up in the Main Hospital to allow for the expansion of overcrowded clinical and surgical areas. It is anticipated that construction of the project would be completed by 2015. The project requires the approval of the Roswell Park Cancer Institute Board of Trustees and a Certificate of Need from the New York State Department of Health.

The project is located at Carlton Street and Michigan Avenue in the City of Buffalo, New York.
