Thursday, June 22, 2017.  Statement by President Chris Shelton, Communications Workers of America, on the health care plan released today by the Senate:  

  • Published Thu, May 18, 2017, Everybody’s Column, Buffalo News, by The Rev. Art Smith, Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta Parish, Depew:   A friend would say, “the only mercy to be found at South Buffalo Mercy Hospital is on its signage,” a sentiment often echoed by an outspoken Franciscan friar. From him I learned to verbalize my own sentiments about the facility, which I now regret.  I was born there and have since spent some time as the beneficiary of its healing mercy.

The hospital has various ongoing construction projects that require specially federally-mandated procedures to safely remove asbestos-containing material, and can only be performed by licensed asbestos abatement contractors, and the areas affected clearly posted as such.  The area is hermetically sealed off, and all removal work is performed within this cordoned-off area.  All material is triple-bagged, sealed, and removed from the site for independent testing.  Air quality monitoring stations are also utilized before, during, and after the abatement process.

"She did an awesome job.  I let her do all the talking.  I was so proud of how she represented nursing and Mercy Hospital.  Brought tears to my eyes; truly a great representative of the nursing profession.  She was perfect."  Shari McDonald, Chief Nursing Officer, Mercy Hospital of Buffalo, March 15, 2017.
