Hide Profile

Sisters of Charity Hospital is Western New York's first hospital which began in 1848 when Bishop John Timon traveled to Baltimore to request the services of the Sisters of Charity.

Six Sisters made the journey to Buffalo to begin their work. Sisters of Charity in America became known as the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul in 1850, officially joining with the order established in France in 1633. By 1884, there were 4 separate Daughters of Charity hospitals in Buffalo, each fulfilling a specific need in the community: Sisters Hospital for the sick, St. Mary's Infant Asylum and Maternity Hospital for orphans and unwed mothers, Providence Retreat for the mentally ill, and Emergency Hospital (now Sheehan Memorial Hospital). Providence Retreat was closed in 1940, but in 1942 the building was used to house the merger of St. Louise de Marillac Maternity Hospital and St. Mary's Hospital. Then in 1948, Sisters Hospital moved to the present site and absorbed the previous merger. In 1981, Sisters Hospital opened the Alden Medical Center, serving eastern Erie County. In 1989, an outpatient chemical dependency (STAR) opened in Amherst followed in 1990 by a second STAR facility in West Seneca. During the 1990s, the hospital opened several clinical sites to other areas of Buffalo and Erie County.
