Call Us…We'll Lend a Hand…With Mission Works

A part of the Niagara Community for more than a century, Mount St. Mary's Hospital and Health Center began as the "Little House on the Corner" in Niagara Falls in 1907. Founded by the Sisters of St. Francis of Williamsville, at the request of the Bishop of Buffalo, the Hospital provided acute care services to all, especially the poor. In 1965 a new Hospital was opened on a 30 acre campus in Lewiston. Today, Mount St. Mary's, under the sponsorship of Ascension Health continues in that same spirit.
