From Business Today:
The last step has been completed toward making First Niagara's purchase of HSBC's New York State branches official. The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency has approved the acquisition, which is set to be complete May 18. First Niagara has begun sending out letters to HSBC customers to keep them informed about the transition.
The New York State Health Foundation has given grants of $100,000 each to two local health clinics. Neighborhood Health Center/ Northwest Buffalo Community Health Care Center in Buffalo will use the money to expand its management infrastructure, while Southern Tier Community Health Center in Olean will use its grant to expand services in Allegany and Cattaraugus counties.
