This full-service, acute care teaching hospital provides a wide range of non-tertiary services to inpatients and outpatients from the community and surrounding areas.
Located in Amherst, one of Western New York’s fastest growing suburbs, Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital is a 265-bed community hospital that includes a telemetry unit, general medical and surgical floors, 10 state-of-the art operating suites, a labor and delivery floor, a center for minimally invasive and robotic surgery, and a dedicated orthopedics unit.
Physicians see some 40,000 patients annually in emergency department, which is also an accredited chest pain center. They deliver about 2,400 babies at the hospital each year.
The patient population at Millard Fillmore Suburban differs considerably from that seen at the Buffalo General Medical Center and ECMC. A full spectrum of ages is treated and the patients are from a more privileged socioeconomic group. Many EM resident graduates will practice in a department similar to that of Millard Fillmore Suburban. The one-month rotation of EM residents in the ED at Suburban thus serves to “round out” and complete the EM experience of the resident. Residents will also spend one month working unopposed in their community ICU, garnering valuable procedural skills and learning to directly manage some of the communities sickest patients.
In recognition of the growing needs of the community, Millard Fillmore Suburban recently completed a two-year, $64 million expansion, which added more than 100,000 square feet to the hospital. This expansion will minimize wait times, expand services and afford more modern and comfortable accommodations to patients and visitors.
