Cummings Foundation awards $50,000 grant for telemetry system

The James H. Cummings Foundation has awarded a $50,000 grant to Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center to be used toward the purchase of a state-of-the-art telemetry system.

Telemetry monitors the heart’s activity while a patient is in the hospital. The new system being purchased by Memorial consists of 29 transmitter/receivers and a central monitor and will ensure patients receive the highest quality care while hospitalized.

“This grant moves us an important step closer to the purchase of this much-needed equipment,” said Memorial President & CEO Joseph A. Ruffolo.  “We are grateful to the Cummings Foundation for its support of this important healthcare initiative.”

The James H. Cummings Foundation was established to support the philanthropic vision of its namesake.  Throughout its 40-year history, the Foundation has aided countless organizations engaged in advancing charitable interests according to the guidelines and policies espoused by Mr. Cummings.

Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center is a full-service, 171-bed hospital with extensive inpatient and outpatient services including The Heart Center of Niagara, Diabetes & Endocrinology Center of Niagara and Niagara County’s first state-accredited stroke center.

Ruffolo thanks staff for making Memorial a great place to work
