Published February 10, 2014

An editorial in the Buffalo News about the importance of gifts from the John R. Oishei Foundation to the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus includes among the contributions a $5 million gift to the UB School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, which pushed UB nearly to the halfway mark in its private fundraising goals for the $375 million building. The article quotes Oishei Foundation leader Robert D. Gioia, who said, “The Oishei Foundation recognizes the new UB medical school as a game-changing addition to the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. It will redefine our region as a hub for the very best in health care.” An article in Business First also looks at the gifts the Oishei Foundation has made to the BNMC.
