Memorial Medical Center Awards Junior Volunteer Scholarship

August 30, 2023

NIAGARA FALLS, NY – Jaclynne Tato, a June graduate of Lewiston-Porter High School, is the recipient of Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center’s (NFMMC) Junior Volunteer Scholarship. A Ransomville resident, Tato volunteered 240 hours over three years, working in patient escort, nursing, administration, the P3 Center, and Child Advocacy Center.

She will enter Carnegie Mellon University this fall, majoring in chemistry while on a pre-med track with the eventual goal of becoming an orthopedic surgeon.

“My experience as a Junior Volunteer enriched my life by facilitating my understanding of what a hospital environment is like,” Tato said.  “It has confirmed my desire to continue down the career path I defined for myself in the seventh grade.”

The $500 scholarship, co-sponsored by the Medical Center Auxiliary and Foundation, has been awarded since 1999 to a graduating high school senior who has volunteered for at least two years and 100 hours at Memorial or the Schoellkopf Health Center.


Founded in 1895, Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center (NFMMC) has a long tradition of serving the Niagara community. NFMMC’s hospital and primary stroke program are accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Health Care, and its primary care network is accredited by the National Committee for Quality Assurance. Memorial’s inpatient services include a cardiac/stroke unit, a medical–surgical unit, an ICU, a Labor and Delivery unit, and an Adult Inpatient Psychiatry unit, the only one of its kind in Niagara County. Memorial serves as a Center for Community Health by operating five primary care centers, a large outpatient adult mental health clinic, a Health Home, and several innovative community-based services.   Thanks to a partnership with Catholic Health, Kaleida Health, and Erie County Medical Center, NFMMC operates the only cardiac catheterization laboratory in Niagara County. Memorial is also home to the Golisano Medical Oncology Center, which operates in collaboration with Roswell Park Comprehensive Care Center.
