There's More Than One Way to Save A Life

The work you do here at Rochester Regional Health matters each and every day, whether you are on the front lines of patient care or behind the scenes making sure our operations run smoothly. It takes all of us to care for our neighbors and loved ones. If we each extend our service to include a contribution, imagine how many more lives we might change for the better — or how many more lives we might save.

As a nonprofit, Rochester Regional relies on the generosity of donors—from both the community at large and our own employees—to address the most critical needs of our patients today and ignite change for the future. You can be part of that, too, by giving any amount. Every dollar matters. Every dollar helps.

Power of 5

If every employee gave $5 per pay period, we would raise over $2.25 million to provide staff with more educational opportunities, revitalize patient care spaces and purchase lifesaving equipment and technologies.

Besty Steehler 2

My husband and I have welcomed two babies into the world since I joined Rochester Regional in 2015. Our daughter, Ellie, was born in August of 2017, and our son, Shane, was born in May of 2019. Both Ellie and Shane needed to be hospitalized at RGH when they were infants for shortness of breath caused by a viral infection called bronchiolitis. Any mother can tell you how terrifying and heart-wrenching it is to see her baby in distress.

The care that both of my babies received (two years apart) from the pediatrics team at Rochester General was nothing short of amazing. It was meticulous. Thoughtful. Organized. Baby-centered. Everyone was so gentle and compassionate toward Ellie and Shane, and I honestly felt like there was nowhere they’d rather be. These people were born to take care of sick children. They loved my babies, and I love them for it.

That’s why I’m #RRHProud and choose to support the RGH Pediatric Fund.
