First Niagara Presents Grand View Hospital $25,000 Gift for Emergency Department

        First Niagara Financial Group, Inc. presented Grand View Hospital with a $25,000 gift for the hospital’s emergency department. “These funds will help us meet growing demand for emergency care in our community,” said Grand View’s vice president for medical affairs Jane Ferry, MD.
        In a recently completed project, Grand View renovated and expanded its emergency department, gaining new treatment areas along with a more streamlined approach to patient care. The project was undertaken to meet steadily increasing volume, which climbed to 36,000 visits in 2011. The emergency department was designed to handle 21,000 visits when it opened in 1994.
        “Now we can treat more patients in less time,” said Grand View’s emergency department manager Jacki Howenstein, RN. Of the department’s 27 beds, 23 are acute care and 15 have cardiac monitoring. “This enables us to keep pace with the trend of more people seeking acute care in the emergency department,” Howenstein added. Other project improvements include an enlarged patient waiting area and enhanced security.
        “We are very happy to support Grand View Hospital. The emergency department provides patient care that is critical to the people in the communities First Niagara serves,” First Niagara’s regional president Bob Kane said.
        “We are grateful to First Niagara for its generous donation. This will help us meet the needs of those who enter Grand View’s doors for emergency medical care,” Ferry responded.
