Millard Fillmore Hospital in New York to Close This Week

Millard Fillmore Hospital, a Kaleida Health facility in Buffalo, N.Y., will be closing tomorrow morning, according to a Buffalo News report.

In 2007, the state Commission on Health Care Facilities in the 21st Century ordered Kaleida Health to close Millard Fillmore Hospital. The closure was part of a larger restructuring plan that included alignment with Erie County Medical Center and a new heart-vascular center. The state commission was tasked with ensuring the regional and local supply of healthcare services in New York was efficient and reflective of communities' needs.

Kaleida Health has been working since then to seamlessly move services, equipment and employees out of the facility. Ultimately, approximately 1,000 employees moved to other Kaleida Health facilities, including the new $291 million Gates Vascular Institute that was created out of the state commission's restructuring recommendation.

Approximately 100 patients remain at Millard Fillmore Hospital, half of whom will be transferred to another hospital and half of whom will be discharged. The last hospital services, the stroke program and emergency department, will officially shut down tomorrow morning.
