With the presence of Coronavirus in Western New York, all hospital visitation is temporarily suspended except for patients receiving end-of-life care or who have had a change in their health status; and for fathers, spouses and life partners of maternity patients. Under these special circumstances, one visitor will be allowed per patient and all visitors will have to submit to a verbal health screening and temperature scan.
We understand how difficult it can be to not be able to a visit loved when they are in the hospital and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. These restrictions are in place to help limit the spread of Coronavirus in our community and protect the health and well-being of our patients and care staff. If you have a loved one in the hospital, you can be connected to their room phone by calling (716) 826-7000.

Picking up a Patient?
If you are picking up a discharged patient, you will receive free valet parking. Please do the following:
1. Use our valet parking service at the main hospital entrance or park in the "Reserved for Discharge" parking spaces on the 2nd floor of the ramp.
Please do not park and wait or leave your car in the front circle of the main hospital entrance.
2. Inform the valet parking attendant that the patient will be discharged that day.
Once the patient is dressed and ready to leave, a hospital staff member will escort you to the parking ramp’s 2nd floor discharge location.
The valet service will deliver the car for pickup.
If the car was self-parked, you can retrieve your car nearby and pick up the patient at the 2nd floor discharge location.
Visitors from out of town, requiring short-term or long-term stays near the hospital, can find affordable lodging through the Grace Guest House. This is a non-profit organization offering accommodations to those with loved ones receiving care at Mercy Hospital of Buffalo.
All local florists deliver to Mercy Hospital. If you are ordering flowers for a patient, it is not necessary to include the room number, as the florist will stop at the front desk to confirm the recipient's name and room number before the delivery is made.
Free wireless internet access is available throughout the hospital. To begin using this service, open your wireless connection utility, scan available networks and connect to "Catholic Health Visitor."

Each of us at some time has experienced the illness of a loved one. It can be an anxious, lonely and frightening time for patients and family members. A chaplain is on call 24-hours-a-day and is available if you would like someone to talk with you, want to share your gratitude and relief, or simply want someone to be with you during a difficult time.
