History of the foundation

Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center was founded in 1895 by 200 citizens who saw the need for a hospital in the city of Niagara Falls and responded by pledging 25 cents per month to make it a reality

The Memorial Medical Center Foundation continues this tradition by raising financial support and awareness for programs and services that benefits the patients we serve.

Charitable giving plays a major role in helping Memorial Medical Center provide exceptional care in comfortable modern settings with today's technology.

Funds raised by the Foundation are used to purchase equipment, institute programs that enhance patient care, improve facilities and promote wellness.

Here are just a few examples of how the generosity of our donors has made a difference for our patients and the community:

After the passing of their father, the Steinjan family pledged the proceeds of their annual car show to the new Cardiac & Stroke Unit in appreciation of the care their family member received at NFMMC.
