As one of the largest healthcare providers in Western New York, Catholic Health is continually looking for ways to improve the health of the local community.
In 2014, we provided more than $82 million in charity care and community benefit activities to help make our community a healthier place, especially for the poor and underserved.

Free health screenings are available at events throughout Western New York. You may be screened for cholesterol, blood pressure, bone health, heart health and more.
To help you improve your health, we offer health education programs at no cost. Our nurses and physicians give presentations at venues throughout Western New York.
Bring our nurses to your events.
All patients without insurance can receive healthcare at a reduced cost, based on an income sliding scale.
To better understand the health issues faced by Western New Yorkers, we conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment every three years.
Following this assessment, we develop a plan to address those health issues.
As in prior years, the 2013 assessment focused on addressing health disparities in the region and improve access to care, especially for the poor and disadvantaged. Through its network of primary care centers and targeted community outreach programs, Catholic Health is serving many of the area’s most vulnerable residents.
