Senator George Maziarz was recently presented with an award of appreciation from Mount St. Mary's Hospital and Health Center in Lewiston. The plaque reads, "On behalf of our patients and staff, 'Thank You' for your unwavering commitment to Mount St. Mary's and the Niagara community."
Eastern Niagara Hospital is creating an ambulatory surgery center on Transit Road in Lockport to better serve local residents in outpatient setting. The facility will have four surgical suites as well as pre-operative areas, recovery, and support functions. Anticipated specialities include orthopedics, plastic/ reconstructive surgery, gastroenterology, ophthalmology, and general surgery. Today marked the construction kick-off for the $3 million project. Congratulations to ENH on this expansion!
Senator George D. Maziarz (R-C, Newfane) is pleased to announce that Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center has been awarded $456,635 through the Vital Access/Safety Net Provider Program (VAP). The VAP, which is administered by the New York State Department of Health, is designed to help enhance health care access for vulnerable populations including frail, elderly, and low-income persons.
Last week Senator George Maziarz toured Strong West, a growing health care facility operated by the University of Rochester Medical Center. This site is quickly filling a void in the Brockport community and beyond that was created when Lakeside Hospital closed in 2013.
As state and local representatives, it is our responsibility to fight for the best interests of the people of our community. Eastern Niagara Hospital has experienced financial difficulties that have forced the organization to explore downsizing proposals ranging from the reduction of service to fully closing the Newfane Hospital.
