Rochester General Hospital

Delivering Tomorrow's Healthcare, Today


Rochester General Hospital
has served the Rochester community for more than 150 years—almost as long as the city’s existence. And as the city and its healthcare needs have evolved, so too has Rochester General and its pursuit of excellence. We have grown from a single building to a comprehensive care campus with region-leading services exemplified by the Lipson Cancer Institute, the Sands-Constellation Heart Institute and soon, the Sands-Constellation Center for Critical Care.

As a 528-bed tertiary care hospital, we are among the region’s leaders in the provision of comprehensive and innovative care, as well as a broad range of specialties. We have been recognized as a Breast Center of Excellence and Top 100 Hospital for Stroke Care. Additionally, the Sands-Constellation Heart Institute is one of the largest cardiology programs in New York State.

But we didn’t become the first-rate hospital we are today simply because we’ve been around for a long time. We’re an exceptional hospital because we’ve always sought to do more for our patients, and it’s because of donors like you that we have been able to accomplish this.

Give Now

When any company or organization has endured for more than a century, it’s no longer just a business; it’s a pillar of the community. It’s an institution that residents can rely on and trust to provide them with quality service. And that’s exactly what Rochester General Hospital has become.

Reimagining Healthcare

Your gift to Rochester General Hospital will help us provide healthcare of the future. The Sands-Constellation Center for Critical Care is the most ambitious project undertaken at Rochester General Hospital since the current campus was built more than 60 years ago. Designed for efficiency, this significant addition to the hospital will enable us to continue to deliver the highest standards of patient and family-centered care by improving patient flow, access, safety, privacy, and comfort.

A New Era of Care

Delivering the highest level of patient-centered care requires more. More space. More technology. More opportunities for training and development. That’s what your support and the Sands-Constellation Center for Critical Care will provide.

With your help, we can achieve a vital next step in our evolution through state-of-the-art surgical suites, advanced women’s health and newborn care, and patient-centric care rooms for the critically ill and injured.

Your support helps create:

  • 20 new operating rooms
  • 26 post-anesthesia beds
  • 54 pre- and post-operative beds
  • 14 special care nursery rooms
  • 20 private post-partum suites
  • 3 robotic surgery suites
  • 108 private acuity-adaptable patient rooms so rooms can change as a patient’s medical needs change
  • New brain lab technology which improves patient treatment planning, surgical navigation and enables more effective use of medical data

Our Impact, Together

Together, we can realize a great vision for our hospital, and make the dreams of our future the present.

Riggs RGH

“We are proud and fortunate to live so close to a hospital like Rochester General. The level of care is outstanding, and the new Center for Critical Care is going to take it to an even higher echelon and serve as a catalyst for modernization across the hospital.

We want the best for the people who live here. This includes the most state-of-the-art healthcare possible and we feel it is our responsibility to help. When Rochester Regional Health flourishes, the entire region is stronger for it.”
