Mercy Hospital Unveils Major ER Renovation Project to Improve Patient Care and Efficiency

Mercy Hospital of Buffalo unveiled a major Emergency Department (ED) renovation project on Friday, June 11, 2021 designed to improve patient care and efficiency. The over $500,000 donor-funded project reconfigured existing space in the ED reception area to accommodate a new provider-in-triage model of care that is being adopted by hospitals across the country to improve care and reduce patient wait time. The project expanded private triage and treatment areas for both non-critically ill patients and those patients who arrive at the hospital by ambulance.

The renovation project was funded by the Mercy Hospital Foundation through the generous support of donors including major contributors: Scott Bieler and Kathy Lasher of the Scott Bieler Foundation; Mr. and Mrs. William and Jane Greene, Miss Maureen Athoe; and the Mercy Hospital Medical Staff.

About Us

Mercy Hospital is an acute care hospital located in South Buffalo adjacent to the Olmsted-designed Cazenovia Park. The hospital was founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1904. From modest beginnings in a renovated home on Tifft Street to its present location on Abbott Road, Mercy now stands as one of our region’s most valuable health care resources.

As the largest of the acute-care hospitals of the Catholic Health System, Mercy plays a central role in the CHS mission to improve the health of individuals and communities through high-quality service that is holistic, compassionate and respectful of human dignity. The Mercy Hospital Foundation was formed in 1978 to solicit, receive and administer philanthropic support for the benefit of Mercy Hospital. 

If you believe, as we believe, that your healthcare provider should be inspired by faith and committed to excellence, then join us in our mission.
