Evergreen Health Services Plans Expansion
Evergreen Health Services is planning a $9 million expansion of its South Elmwood Avenue offices and medical clinic because the social services agency is running out of room for employees and patients at its longtime home. The nonprofit is planning a five-story, 30,000-square-foot addition that would double its current space in the historic Roanoke Building at 206 S. Elmwood Ave. in Buffalo, NY. The agency’s workforce has grown from 80 to 225, and its client base has seen similar growth, as its mission expanded in recent years, fueling the need for larger space. Medical space in the new building would double to 7,000 square feet, from the 3,500 square feet in their existing building, which was intended to serve 400 or 500 patients but instead serves about 1,600.
