Erie County Medical Center Corporation (ECMCC) and NFL football great and member of the NFL Hall of Fame Jim Kelly today dedicated a patient room as the hospital’s “Kelly Tough Room”. The room is the same room where Jim received his medical care during his inpatient stays from June 2013 through June 2014. It features a variety of Jim Kelly sports memorabilia, including a framed autographed Buffalo Bills jersey that welcomes patients and visitors into the room. The room is painted with the same red, white and blue colors that are included in the official Kelly Tough logo and an inspirational quote from Jim is featured prominently on a section of one of the room’s walls: “MAKE A DIFFERENCE TODAY FOR SOMEONE WHO IS FIGHTING FOR THEIR TOMORROW”.
