The team is not just the physicians, it’s the nurses, it’s the technicians that run the x-ray machines. It’s the doctors that work up in the ICU, taking care of our patients after we do surgery on them. That has developed in the training that all these people, all these individuals allow themselves to go through, in order to improve the way patients are cared for. It’s just tremendous.

We’ve opened up a new door for caring for the patients in Western New York, and following through on the mission of Catholic Health.
