Frequently Asked Questions
The recent reconfiguration of services at Mount St. Mary’s Hospital is focused on caring for our community by creating a healthcare model that is sustainable and continues to provide the highest quality care to our patients and their families. Please see below for answers to some the most frequent questions we’ve received since making the service change announcement.
Is the hospital closing?
No. Mount St. Mary’s Hospital will remain open 24/7 and continue to provide the highest standard of care to the residents of Lewiston and the surrounding Niagara County communities.
Why are these changes being made?
As we see a shift in the needs of our patients and in the healthcare environment, we must also adapt with these changes. Advancements in medicine have made most treatments outpatient procedures so there is less need for inpatient hospital stays. Over 90% of surgical procedures are outpatient procedures that can be performed at our ambulatory center. This benefits our patients as it makes their recovery easier, faster, and can be done from the comfort of their home. This reconfiguration allows us to better align our resources while still providing residents with quality healthcare services.
What will this mean for the community of Lewiston?
Inpatient care will still be available at Mount St. Mary’s Hospital. In addition to inpatient care, our comprehensive on-site imaging, laboratory, primary care, and all our specialty medical practices will still be available to care for you and your family.
What services are still offered at Mount St. Mary’s Hospital?
What OB/GYN services are still offered at Mount St. Mary’s Hospital?
The Center for Women at Mount St. Mary’s Hospital is home to some of the best women’s healthcare available in Niagara County. Women can still receive gynecologic and obstetric care, as well as natural family planning, pregnancy testing, perinatal testing, and digital mammography services. Expectant mothers will continue to receive pre and postnatal care from their current OB/GYN at the Center for Women at Mount St. Mary’s Hospital, and will have access to award winning maternity care at Sisters of Charity Hospital.
How will Mount St. Mary’s Hospital take care of me if I have a medical emergency?
Most patients requiring emergency care will be treated. They will be triaged and stabilized, and if they require higher levels of specialty care for heart or stroke, they will be transferred to one of our Centers of Excellence where they will continue to receive the most advanced care. Only 4-5% of patients are admitted to the hospital, while over 80% are treated and discharged the same day.
How is Mount St. Mary’s Hospital helping mothers who were planning to deliver at the hospital?
Our patients will have access to the best labor & delivery care at Sisters of Charity Hospital. Our physicians have been speaking individually with each of their patients during this transition, and have assured them that they will still be part of their delivery at Sisters of Charity Hospital. We have been actively working to familiarize our patients with Sisters of Charity Hospital in preparation for their delivery by scheduling special tours of the facility. Sisters of Charity Hospital delivers over 3,000 babies each year, and is a designated Level III NICU. Along with Mercy Hospital of Buffalo, Sisters of Charity Hospital was named Best Hospital for Maternity Care for 2022-2023 by U.S. News & World Report, the highest award a hospital can earn for maternity care. They are the only two hospitals in WNY to receive this distinction.
What is going to happen to the employees affected by the reconfiguration?
Every associate affected by these changes has been offered a new role within the hospital, the new Lockport Memorial Hospital, or within Catholic Health.
