Cornerstone Society

Cor·ner·stone / nthe chief foundation on which something is constructed or developed; something that is essential, indispensable, or necessary

Rochester Regional Health’s most loyal donors are the foundation, or cornerstone, of our annual giving program. As they are the basis of our overall fundraising efforts, we now recognize these dedicated individuals and businesses through the Cornerstone Society, the leadership annual giving society for Rochester Regional Health.

Through gift commitments each year for three consecutive years, Cornerstone members lay the foundation of support that is needed to fund ongoing programs and operations across all five of our hospitals: Clifton Springs Hospital & Clinic, Newark-Wayne Community Hospital, Rochester General Hospital, United Memorial Medical Center and Unity Health. This critical support helps shape the future of healthcare in our region and has a profound impact on the lives of all those we serve.

Community Impact

Rochester Regional Health has a bold plan for transforming healthcare. It is a vision that extends beyond the traditional hospital setting to help people maintain good health and live healthier, happier lives. In the coming years, we will integrate key services, redistribute crucial assets and invest in pivotal resources to better facilitate healthcare delivery in this region.
