Erie County, NY – Erie County Legislature Chair Peter Savage participated in Friday’s ground-breaking ceremony for Erie County Medical Center’s (ECMC) new Emergency and Trauma Center.  Joined by Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul, Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz, ECMCC President and CEO Thomas Quatroche, as well as several other representatives from the community, the first dig was completed celebrating the start of construction.

The project was made possible by the 2017 actions of Chairman Savage and other members of the Erie County Legislature when they approved a borrowing transaction that facilitated the hospital’s construction of the new Emergency and Trauma Center.

Chairman Savage said, “ECMC’s emergency department has approximately 70,000 visits a year and serves the residents of 8 Western New York counties. This expansion is a necessary project that will save lives and provide our dedicated medical professionals with the facility they deserve.”

The $58 million expansion project with an anticipated 2020 completion will modernize and expand ECMC’s Emergency Department in a new, state-of-the-art building that will augment Emergency Department services with enhanced patient flow and other operational efficiencies.
