Making oncology accessible to Niagara County residents.
When faced with a cancer diagnosis, patients should never have to compromise in seeking the best possible treatment and care. Unfortunately, far too many residents of Niagara County are faced with a decision between quality of care and ease of access. To address this inaccessibility to cancer care, Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center (NFMMC) has partnered with Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. This collaboration will allow services to be provided to Niagara County residents at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center’s main campus.

“I am now a four-time ovarian cancer survivor, having been through surgeries and multiple rounds of chemotherapy under the care of Dr. Frederick, my Roswell OB-GYN, Dr. Ahmed and now Dr. Ramkumar. Having care in my backyard is so convenient.” -Carol Faccini
