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.

“These dollars will help a major local hospital continue to meet the health care needs of all members of our society,” Senator Maziarz said.  “The people of Niagara Falls and beyond who utilize the hospital in their time of need will all benefit from this financial support.”

Last year Niagara Falls Memorial Medical received VAP award in the amount of $261,676.
