NORTH TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WKBW) — The new year is set to bring major changes to DeGraff Memorial Hospital in North Tonawanda.

Beginning January 1, 2020, the hospital will be focusing patient services on its new $8m emergency department, related ancillary services as well as primary care.

According to hospital leadership, the facility will be transitioning in-patient care to Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital in Amherst for patients not requiring care at a specialty center.

The hospital's Wellness Center will remain open with PT, OT, Speech Language Pathology, Cardiac Rehab and physician offices.

In 2017, DeGraff closed its Intensive Care and Surgical Units.
