Catholic Health is reminding people with health emergencies that the Emergency Department is closed at Sisters of Charity Hospital, St. Joseph Campus, 205 Harlem Road, Cheektowaga.
In a press release, Catholic Health advised those needing emergency care to call 911 or go to the nearest emergency facility that is open.
The Emergency Department at Sisters Hospital’s main campus in Buffalo at 2157 Main St. is open and providing services as usual, Catholic Health noted.
The reminder was prompted by what the release said was “a slight uptick in emergent cases” coming to the St. Joseph Campus seeking emergency treatment.
The St. Joseph Campus was converted to an all Covid-19 treatment facility in March. The only care provided there currently, the press release said, is for patients who have tested positive for coronavirus at another Catholic Health location.
