The difference between healthcare and true care.

At ECMC, we’re more than just a hospital. We’re a community that’s made the patient experience our first priority, bringing compassionate, capable care to the eight counties of Western New York, as well as Southern Ontario.

At every level of our organization, our team demonstrates dedication to caring for patients with the best expertise, knowledge, and technology—a commitment that’s been brought to life with our multiple centers of excellence, a growing main campus, and ever-increasing community involvement.

We deliver that care through a presence that spans Western New York, including:

  • Our advanced academic medical center on our main campus with 573 inpatient beds
  • Specialized centers of excellence
  • On- and off-campus primary care and family health centers (Learn more »)
  • More than 30 outpatient specialty care services (Learn more »)
  • Terrace View Long-Term Care Facility (Learn more »)

In addition, ECMC is a verified Level 1 Adult Trauma Center by the American College of Surgeons, designated a Level 1 Adult Trauma Center by the NYS Department of Health, as well as a regional center for burn care, behavioral health services, transplantation, medical oncology and head & neck cancer care, and rehabilitation. Our work with the most critical cases in Western New York has given us the privilege of caring for patients when they need it most, in addition to giving us the experience to create patient success stories around non-emergency medical situations.

Finally, as a major teaching facility for the University of Buffalo, ECMC is consistently at the forefront of medical research and ingenuity. In addition, most of our physicians, dentists, and pharmacists are members of a private practice plan. The end result? ECMC has become a destination of choice, not just for patients seeking the very best care, but also for best-in-class physicians, surgeons, and support staff looking to grow their careers and innovate in their fields.

With this combination of cutting-edge technology, experienced doctors, and a wealth of research, we’re proud to offer Western New York a healthier future—and prouder still to show our community the difference between healthcare and true care.
