Mount St. Mary’s Hospital  -While we realize our business community is feeling the impact of COVID19, we also realize our business community is a very supportive and kind community.  We have gotten a few requests from people who want to drop off snacks and meals for our nurses and doctors.  If you are in such a position to do so, please call Julie Berrigan (Mount St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation) at 939-0220 or julie.berrigan@chsbuffalo.org to coordinate as the hospital has certain procedures to follow and has a screening process for all visitors and vendors.  If you are in a position to offer a discount to hospital employees, please also let Julie know.

For anyone able to assist, the hospital will feature these kind gestures in a Care 4 Caregivers PR campaign.   Thank you very much! - Mount St. Mary’s Hospital
