New life for old hospital floor at Memorial


Niagara Gazette —

The unit also includes two nurses stations, which Kee said will improve patient contact with the professionals who are responsible for their care. Increased contact, she said, leads to more success stories.

"We wanted to shorten the distance the nurses had to travel to get to their patients," she said. "This way, the nurses can see more patients in a day. And this results in better care."

Though furniture and equipment for the 24 rooms and the two nurses stations aren't expected to be available until Monday at the earliest, according to Kee, a ribbon-cutting ceremony and blessing of the new space was held Wednesday featuring Niagara University President the Rev. Joseph Levesque, Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster and Robert Gioia, president and CEO of The John R. Oshei Foundation, along with other representatives from the health care community.

James Roscetti, chairman of the NFMMC board of directors, said he and the rest of the board are excited to see how the renovated unit pushes the hospital forward into the future.

"When I look back, I see how much we've done in the last 10 years," Roscetti said. "It seems like it should have taken decades to do. But it's pretty impressive because when I came on, we were ready to close."

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
