One of the nation’s top academic medical centers, the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) forms the centerpiece of the University of Rochester’s health research, teaching, patient care, and community outreach missions.
Over the last five years, URMC has received more than $1.9 billion in total external research funding, and ranks in the top quarter of U.S. academic medical centers in federal research funding. URMC’s patients benefit from the Medical Center’s robust teaching and biomedical research programs.
The University’s health care delivery network is anchored by Strong Memorial Hospital– a 750-bed, University-owned teaching hospital that boasts programs that consistently rank among “America’s Best Hospitals,” according to U.S. News & World Report — together with its 268-bed affiliate, Highland Hospital, which is well known for its comprehensive orthopaedics services, women’s services, nationally ranked geriatrics program, and leading regional gastric bypass surgery center.
At URMC, our mission is to use education, science, and technology to improve health—transforming the patient experience with fresh ideas and approaches steeped in disciplined science, and delivered by health care professionals who innovate, take intelligent risks, and care about the lives they touch.
