This grant is being made by the KeyBank Foundation in partnership with the First Niagara Foundation.

“On behalf of our Board and the dedicated caregivers that lead our culture of care, we are deeply grateful to KeyBank for this very generous donation that is done in partnership with the First Niagara Foundation,” said Thomas J. Quatroche Jr., PhD, ECMC President & CEO in a press release. “This contribution will help ECMC achieve our goal of building and sustaining a state-of-the-art Trauma Center/Emergency Department that will meet our current growth in patients and provide lifesaving care for the residents of Western New York. This type of support demonstrates what our supporters in the private sector and philanthropic organizations recognize about ECMC – we save lives and strengthen the quality of life for our patients and our community.”

The existing Trauma Center/Emergency Department will be re-located to a newly-constructed ground floor facility. ECMC is our area's busiest and only Level 1 Adult Trauma Center and Emergency Department, serving the 1.5 million residents of the eight counties of Western New York!  ECMC's Emergency Department is currently beyond full-capacity.  It was built to serve 45,000 patients annually, treats 70,000 patients each year.

“This new, state-of-the-art trauma center will enhance the quality care ECMC provides to thousands of patients each year and allow the hospital to grow and thrive,” said Gary Quenneville, KeyBank Upstate New York Regional Executive. “KeyBank is proud to support this campaign, which will ensure the life-saving work at ECMC will continue for decades to come.”
