Toyota Rookie Club Hospital Visit

The Buffalo Bills Toyota Rookie Club paid a visit to Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo to provide an evening of fun for the pediatric patients.

“We are very proud to partner with the Buffalo Bills and their rookie club.  Having the players visit our patients, particularly this time of year, is a warm reminder of the tremendous heart that this community has. Western New York is so fortunate to have these two great community institutions, the Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo as well as the Buffalo Bills,” said Allegra Jaros, President of Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo.

The rookies visited children in their rooms to deliver a special gift from the Bills, hosted a pizza party, and played games in the activity room.

“We are grateful to the amazing staff of Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo,” said Gretchen Geitter, Buffalo Bills Vice President of Community Relations. “These types of visits are just as meaningful to the Bills players as they are to the young patients.”

“Just being able to come out here to Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo to visit the kids is a tremendous opportunity. It us very humbling, just being able to have the experience of putting smiles on these young kids’ faces, it means a lot to myself and I am sure for the other guys as well,” said Tony Steward, Buffalo Bills Linebacker.

Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, a Kaleida Health facility and teaching hospital for the University at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, is the regional center for comprehensive and state-of-the-art pediatric, neonatal, perinatal and obstetrical services in Western New York and beyond.  For more information, please go online at www.wchob.org.
