About Us

Formed in 1998 under four religious sponsors, Catholic Health in Buffalo, NY is a non-profit healthcare system that provides care to Western New Yorkers across a network of hospitals, nursing homes, home care agencies, physician practices, and other community based ministries. Today, the system has two religious sponsors, the Diocese of Buffalo and the Franciscan Sisters of St. Joseph, who carry on its Mission across the Buffalo-Niagara region.

How We're Different


Our mission sets us apart. It's the human side of healthcare – the touch, smile or comforting word that can help make your healthcare experience better. It's treating all people with respect and dignity, and providing comfort in times of greatest need.


Catholic Health is making the largest investment in its history, dedicating more than $100 million in state-of the- art technology that will connect our hospitals, home care, long-term care, clinician offices, health centers and ancillary services with patients throughout the area. This transformational investment marks a major milestone for our healing ministry, which dates back more than 165 years.
