ECMC has some good news to share.  The Leapfrog Group has rated ECMC’s overall patient safety score at ‘A’, which places it among one of only 14 hospitals out of 139 in New York State to receive an ‘A’ Patient Safety Score. 

The Buffalo Sabres have renewed the franchise’s multi-year partnership with Copier Fax Business Technologies and Konica Minolta.  Copier Fax Business Technologies and Konica Minolta will continue into the 2017-2018 season and beyond as The Official Office Technology Company of the Buffalo Sabres.

New data on end-of-life planning shows... a lack of planning!  A new Univera Healthcare survey found that 89 percent of upstate New York adults knows that by completing a  “health care proxy," they can legally designate someone to be their health care agent to represent them during a medical crisis if they can’t speak for themselves... but only about 40 percent of adults in the region have completed this form and given copies to their doctor, lawyer and family members.  A link to Univera's survey results can be found here.
