Dyster proposes $250k in casino revenues for Memorial Hospital's planned cardiac/stroke center

Mayor Paul A. Dyster wants the Niagara Falls City Council to approve a $250,000 grant for Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center.

The funds would be used for a planned state-of-the art cardiac and stroke care center. The hospital has been offered a $750,000 grant for the project from the John R. Oishei Foundation, but must raise $750,000 on its own in order to access the foundation's funds.

A $250,000 grant from the city, which would be phased in over two years, would come from the city's share of casino revenues and would fulfill the hospital's requirement to find matching funds, according to a news release issued by the hospital.

The matter will come before lawmakers when they meet Monday.
