State awards Memorial $500,000 to upgrade patient care technology

The New York State Department of Health has approved Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center's application for funding to upgrade patient care technology in the ER1 Emergency Department and other clinical areas.

"I am pleased to inform you that Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center will be awarded $500,000 from the Health Care Stabilization Program," said David Wollner, director of the state Office of Health Systems Management.

The award will used to purchase new laboratory and diagnostic equipment, said President & CEO Joseph A Ruffolo. The equipment is needed to handle the medical center's growing patient volume since the recent move of the ER1 Emergency Department and The Heart Center of Niagara into a new and larger facility on Walnut Avenue at 10th Street.

Ruffolo acknowledged the efforts of SEIU 1199 for their assistance with this grant award.

"Our members have always been strong advocates for quality health care for the communities they serve.  We are very pleased that the joint efforts of our elected officials, the hospital administration and 1199 have generated these additional funds to upgrade the equipment for ER1," said George Kennedy, area director for 1199 SEIU/ United Healthcare Workers East.

Ruffolo thanks staff for making Memorial a great place to work
