Pursuing Perfection

There’s a saying that allows us to be more accepting of our flaws and forgiving of our failures: nobody’s perfect. But when it comes to your heart, at the Sands- Constellation Heart Institute, this is exactly our aim.

We have made impossible expectations part of who we are because we specialize in a part of the body where there is no room for error, where mistakes can be the difference between life and death. Our drive for perfection is why Rochester General Hospital has been recognized as one of the nation’s top 100 cardiovascular hospitals nine times instead of just once or twice.

This pursuit of perfection has always guided our way forward, and now it’s being fueled by the $300 million, comprehensive Because Care Matters Campaign. The Campaign’s fundraising goals—for facilities, programs and our Annual Fund— align with the goals we have for the institute.

The support we receive allows us to continually push the boundaries of our care. It puts us in a position where we always have the best technology available for the most sophisticated procedures that enable us to offer patients a better life, or even a second chance at life.

Your help will extend our reach and enhance our ability to deliver world-class cardiac care for a world-class patient experience.
