COVID VACCINE CLINIC: updated schedule (as of 12/1/22)

Michael Gawel Released After 68 Day Stay
l

January 26, 2021

Niagara Falls Memorial Center on Tuesday celebrated its second discharge of a long-term COVID-19 patient in four days.

Michael Gawel received a rousing ovation as he was wheeled out following a 68-day stay, most of which was spent on a ventilator in the ICU.

Gawel was admitted to the medical center in November at about the same time as his father, who also was a COVID-19 patient.  Sadly, his father died from the virus in mid-December while Michael fought through it and made what some are calling a miraculous recovery more than a month later.

On Saturday, the medical center discharged COVID-19 patient Richard Portale after a 60-day stay – just in time for him to watch Sunday’s AFC Championship game at home.
