***Please distribute to anyone that needs***

Just as a reminder, as of 00:00hrs on March 15, 2016, the Emergency Department at Eastern Niagara Hospital Newfane Site will cease operations. With that, this site will no longer be covered under Article 28 of the New York State Public Health Code, and will no longer be able to accept patients being transported by ambulance.

Please advise your crews of this and make alternative decisions for patient transport to the most appropriate Emergency Department based on:
• WREMAC and DOH protocols
• Patient/family choice
• Patient status

Thank you for your attention in this matter, and as always, for all you do.
