Collaborating with Catholic Health

March 13, 2019


BUFFALO, NY - A unique partnership between Canisius and Catholic Health is about to bring several innovative collaborations to campus. 

The healthcare system announced in February that it will lease and renovate 20,000 square feet of space on the third floor of Science Hall to house a 150-member team that will build and test a new $100 million electronic health records (EHR) system.  It is the largest investment in the history of Catholic Health and is intended to further improve patient care and innovate healthcare delivery. 

The benefits of the investment are twofold. 

According to Catholic Health CEO Mark A. Sullivan ’92, MPA ’96, the initiative will also create internships and mentoring opportunities for students studying information technology, data analytics, finance, healthcare, and offer real-world collaborations between students and professionals in the emerging field of EHR.

Catholic Health will lease the space for an initial term of three years with some limited options for renewal.  Its EHR team will move into Science Hall in June.
