Holly Gagnon is one of the few female CEOs in the gaming industry, but the third at Seneca Gaming Corporation. June marks her second anniversary leading four entertainment facilities in Western New York, which boast some 15 million guests per year served by more than 3,600 employees. June also is expected to reveal the completion of a $40 million renovation project that Gagnon said will "change the entire gateway" to Niagara Falls. WBFO's Marian Hetherly sat down with her to talk games of chance.

An on-site health office is now open for Seneca Gaming Corporation employees in Niagara Falls. It will benefit more than 3,000 Seneca employees free of charge. On site nurses will be able to treat flu like symptoms and colds.

They will also be able to test for strep-throat and give flu vaccines.

Chairman of the Seneca Gaming Karen Karsten said having a health office on-site is not only convenient, but it will also influence employees to lead a healthy lifestyle.
