BUFFALO, NEW YORK; May 19, 2005 - To coincide with "Emergency Medical Services Week," (May 16-20, 2005), Rural Metro Medical Services today presented a $25,000 donation to Erie County Medical Center (ECMC) Corporation. The funds were contributed in recognition of the life-saving care provided by staff of ECMC's Trauma Intensive Care Unit, the Regional Adult Trauma Center for Western New York.

The Erie County Medical Center (ECMC) Corporation encompasses an advanced academic medical center with 550 inpatient beds and 156 skilled nursing home beds, on- and off-campus health centers, over 40 outpatient specialty care clinics, and the Erie County Home, a 586-bed skilled nursing facility. The medical center, ranked among the nation's 100 top hospitals for cardiac and intensive care, serves as the regional center for trauma, burn, rehabilitation, and a major teaching facility for the State University of New York at Buffalo. The ECMC Corporation is dedicated to being the medical center of choice through excellence in patient care and customer service.

ECMC John R. Border, M.D., Trauma Intensive Care Unit

In 2004, Erie County Medical Center provided trauma intensive care services to more than 300 patients. The trauma patient's length of stay for trauma care at ECMC averaged 18 days.

In 2000, ECMC completed a trauma intensive care unit (T/ICU) major renovation project that culminated in a May 2, 2000, grand opening/dedication ceremony." The unit was dedicated and named in honor of the late John R. Border, M.D., a founder of the ECMC Trauma Center (Est. 1978) and international pioneer of trauma care and research initiated (in 1973) at the Edward J. Meyer Memorial Hospital (the precursor to ECMC).

The 2000 T/ICU renovation featured an increase to 18 trauma beds/rooms. Rooms are spacious and beds are located in the center of each room for improved patient access and patient comfort. The latest digital fluoroscopic, x-ray, and dialysis equipment is available within the unit. Patient charts are accessible via one computer station for every two rooms. To reduce support service traffic and minimize the risk of infection, an outside corridor is used for delivery of food and supplies. The T/ICU also features a "step-down unit" for patients who no longer require intensive care, but are too sick to be moved to regular rooms. The revamped unit also includes a private consultation room and a waiting room.
