Letter from Robert Gioia and James Kaskie

Great Lakes Health System of Western New York is a not-for-profit, community-based corporation that oversees unified partners who provide the highest quality of healthcare. Patients will now benefit from the combined resources of four Kaleida Health hospitals, the University at Buffalo's world-renowned research capabilities, ECMC's superb trauma expertise, as well as the at-home care and compassion of VNA nurses, and The Center for Hospice & Palliative Care. Moreover, thousands more will be treated in the combined organization's long-term care facilities, ambulatory and community clinics.

Making healthcare delivery the best it can be requires the passion, skill and dedication of everyone who has a stake in our community. On behalf of the entire leadership team – and as members of the Western New York community – we're honored to advance the vision and mission of Great Lakes Health.

Robert D. Gioia
Chair
