    NEW YORK, May 27 /CNW/ -- The Bank of New York Mellon, through its
subsidiary BNY Trust Company of Canada, has been appointed collateral trustee,
intercreditor agent, indenture trustee and administrative agent for the bond
issue and syndicated loan facility which will be used to build Niagara Health
System's new Health-Care Complex and Walker Family Cancer Centre in St.
Catharines, Ontario.  The $759 million health care complex will consolidate
acute and ambulatory services, cardiac catheterization, cancer treatment and
longer-term mental health services.

    BNY Trust Company of Canada will assume a broad range of administrative
roles for the financing, including processing of principal and interest
payments, maintaining noteholder records, monitoring collateral and collecting
and disbursing insurance proceeds.

    "We are pleased to support this important project, which will greatly
enhance the area's health care infrastructure," said Jerome Dwight, head of
BNY Trust Company of Canada.

    The Bank of New York Mellon and BNY Trust Company of Canada provide
global trust and agency services to Canadian issuers interested in tapping the
