A Grand Opening in Grand Style
GBUAHN Ribbon Cutting ushers in new era in health care

Amidst perfect weather and hundreds of GBUAHN supporters, the ribbon was officially cut on the new GBUAHN facility at 564 Niagara Street on Thursday, September 21, 2017. The state-of-the art, $6 million, 40,000-square-foot facility was a marvel to all who attended, and the ceremony was an outstanding tribute to the health care revolution that GBUAHN is bringing to the Lower West Side of Buffalo and all of Western New York.

Vocalist Marisa Borella brought tears to the eyes of many in the crowd with her stunning rendition of Andra Day’s “Rise Up,” a favorite of the Vazquez family. Borella’s outstanding performance was followed by the program of speakers, led by Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown, who called the GBUAHN facility a “game changer:”

“Today marks a huge step in building a city of opportunity for all people, connecting our residents to vital health and human services, while also creating jobs for the members of our community,” said Mayor Brown.

Congressman Brain Higgins took the podium and applauded Dr. Vazquez and GBUAHN for pushing forth needed changes in health care.

“I would say to the leaders in our nation’s capital, if you want to know what health care reform looks like, you don’t need to look any farther than 564 Niagara Street,” said Higgins.

New York State Senator Tim Kennedy spoke with enthusiasm about the ribbon cutting and what GBUAHN is doing for the community:

“You know when Dr. Vazquez does things, he does them big,” quipped the Senator.

“This is a monument of success in the city of Buffalo,” Senator Kennedy continued. “This multi-million-dollar health care facility is unmatched anywhere in the great state of New York.”

Following the program, Dr. Vazquez and Toni Vazquez cut the ceremonial ribbon to celebrate the official opening of the building. Guests stayed for tours and refreshments, and marveled at the extraordinary event and GBUAHN facility.
