Foundations Leadership

Rochester Regional Health Foundations volunteer leaders serve on boards that represent all five of our hospitals. They give of their time, talents and treasure for the good of the organization, serving as ambassadors, informed advocates, strategic advisors and valuable resources. We appreciate our many volunteer leaders and are honored to recognize them for their distinguished service.

In 2014, the Rochester General Hospital Foundation and the Unity Hospital Foundation merged to form the Rochester Regional Health Foundations. Along with leadership from both hospitals, Foundations President Michele Grazulis and her team work with the board of directors to define, manage and execute Foundations goals.
