The group says only people 14 and older will be allowed at its hospitals, which include Kenmore Mercy, South Buffalo Mercy, Sisters of Charity Hospital and St. Joseph Campus. The policy also takes effect at the long term care facilities such as Father Baker Manor, McAuley residence, Mercy Skilled Nursing Facility at OLV, St. Francis of Williamsville, and St. Catherine Laboure. Restrictions also apply to neonatal intensive care units and maternal child areas at SIsters and Mercy Hospitals.
