New York hospital to end inpatient care, affecting 55 jobs

North Tonawanda, N.Y.-based DeGraff Memorial Hospital will end inpatient services by the end of the year, according to Buffalo Business First. 

Although inpatient stays will be eliminated, the hospital's emergency room and skilled nursing facility will remain open. 

The decision to move services out of the facility is a result of how the community has been using the facility, the hospital's parent company, Kaleida Health, told Buffalo Business First. 

Ending inpatient services will result in 55 employees losing their jobs. Affected employees will be able to apply to other jobs within the Kaleida Health system. 

Buffalo, N.Y.-based Kaleida Health said it has no plans to close the facility. 

Becker's Hospital Review has reached out to Kaleida Health for comment. This article will be updated accordingly.
