Space improved so surgical patients have more modern facilities
BUFFALO, NY May 4, 2009 - Erie County Medical Center today opened a refurbished surgical wing on the 12th Floor of the Grider Street hospital that adds improved in-patient care rooms for 20 patients.
The project, which cost $722,532, updates Life Safety Code requirements to further enhance the safety of patients, staff and visitors.
"The reconstruction of one of our key hospital surgical wings brings this part of the hospital up to the latest medical standards," said Jody L. Lomeo, ECMC's CEO. "Patients, doctors, nurses and staff will have the best-possible care and workplace conditions and experience."
It added hand-washing sinks in corridors and at nurses' stations to reduce infection risk; it added more sprinklers and increased the number of smoke detectors; the work improved ventilation, replaced drain lines and coordinated flow switches on the sprinkler system to tie them in to the fire alarm system.
The project was paid for with cash from operations and does not carry any debt financing.
This addition comes shortly after ECMC received the Society of Chest Pain Centers' national accreditation as a Chest Pain Center with a percutaneous cardiac intervention (PCI) designation, just the fifth such hospital in New York State. ECMC became the 250th accredited Chest Pain Center with PCI designation in the nation, out of 5,759 hospitals. Also, in late April, ECMC became only the region's fifth Designated Stroke Center, a medical, financial and patient benefit in a county that has the most stroke deaths statewide
