Feature improves access and convenience to the Clinical Sciences Center

Patients heading to appointments in the Scott Bieler Clinical Sciences Center (CSC) of Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center’s downtown Buffalo campus now have a new, easier way to access the building directly.

The side entrance of the CSC on Michigan Avenue has a new area where patients being driven to Roswell Park may safely be dropped off to directly enter the lobby of the CSC. This helps patients avoid having to enter the main entrance of the hospital and walk through the corridor to the CSC.

The curbside drop-off is for quick, 5-minute drop-offs and pick-ups only. No parking, waiting or unattended vehicles will be permitted. The concrete of the new drop-off area and sidewalk will be heated for added safety during cold and ice season. In addition, this side entrance to the CSC from Michigan Avenue includes an overhead canopy on the outside, a vestibule on the inside, and hand-wave automatic doors. Wheelchairs also will be available as well as volunteers and a patient transport representative.

To use this new curbside drop-off, drivers must approach the entrance on Michigan Avenue from the southbound lane. For everyone’s safety, no U-turns or drop-offs on the opposite side of the street are permitted. To avoid a U-turn, drivers may head east on Carlton Street, turn left on Maple Street, turn left on High Street and turn left on Michigan Avenue.

This new curbside drop-off was made possible thanks to the generosity of donors.
