This article appeared in today’s (11-3-17) Buffalo News. It shines a beautiful light on the great care at Mercy Hospital, but could have easily been about any of our hospitals, health centers, or home care agencies, and the compassionate care and courteous service you provide our patients, residents, and their families every day. Thank you for all you do for those we serve. It makes a big difference in people’s lives, as this article so beautifully illustrates.
