The Auxiliary of Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center recently presented a check for more than $49,000 to benefit the medical center's cardiac/stroke unit campaign. The check represents the auxiliary's final payment on its $100,000 pledge to the new facility.
On hand were, from left, Memorial President and CEO Joseph A. Ruffolo, Board Chairman James C. Roscetti and Auxiliary President Jane Grenke.
The 12,950-square-foot unit, which will be built at a cost of $4.3 million, will replace a 40-year-old telemetry unit on the fourth floor of the hospital's Schoellkopf Building. The modern, 25-bed facility will be built on the now-vacant third floor and feature all private rooms, including six higher acuity step-down rooms for patients who require a more acute level of care and monitoring.
