Because Care Matters: The Campaign for Rochester Regional Health

Because Care Matters

At Rochester Regional Health, we believe every step of a patient’s journey is the most important toward realizing a better, healthier life. This philosophy became the foundation for Because Care Matters: The Campaign for Rochester Regional Health.

The Campaign seeks to realize an ambitious vision for the region’s healthcare through a system-wide, comprehensive fundraising effort to raise at least $300 million. We will pursue this goal by focusing on projects, programs, equipment and other resources that are crucial to the success of our mission.


Facilities — Expanding and modernizing the buildings and infrastructure at each of our hospitals and several affiliated care locations

Programs — Providing state-of-the-art equipment, the best training experiences and priority care initiatives that ensure we are delivering exceptional, patient-centered care across our organization

Annual Fund — Unrestricted support that our medical leaders can use to relieve strained budgets and meet the immediate, and sometimes unexpected, needs of their programs


  • Enhancing the Patient Experience: Reaching the highest level of patient-centered care possible by building, renovating and modernizing our facilities
  • Expanding Specialized Care: Delivering care at an exceptional level by focusing on our strengths and continuing to invest in our institutes and centers
  • Advancing Care Delivery: Pushing the limits of our care standards by investing in state-of-the-art technology and bolstering our education and training programs
  • Improving Community Health: Providing care to the greatest number of people by improving the reach and breadth of our programs
