Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center rededicated its upper lobby Wednesday as the Russell J. Salvatore Welcome Center.

"This marks my 11th hospital project, and I am finding great satisfaction and happiness knowing I’m able to assist people when they need it most," Salvatore said.

The renaming followed what the medical center called a "generous donation" from Salvatore.

The 1,500-square-foot project, installed by TM Montante Development, sought to make the lobby brighter and less institutional, while adding a visitor check-in system that will enhance security.

"You never get a second chance to make a first impression,” Memorial President and CEO Joseph A. Ruffolo said. "That’s especially important in a hospital, where those who entrust their care to us may be intimidated or disoriented by a health care setting that is foreign to them. It’s important that we make all who enter here feel welcome and safe."
