Erie County closes on funds for ECMC ER

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — ECMC administrators have decided to move forward with a new emergency department.

Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz says they’ve closed on a $107 million bond transaction.

It will allow for the ER expansion and the replacement of HVAC equipment at the hospital and in county buildings.

$17 million will go to offset the cost of paying for medical care for the poor and uninsured. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
