Presidents Message

 It’s an exciting time for Rochester General Hospital and the new Rochester Regional Health System. I am honored and privileged to be a part of an organization whose mission, vision and values I see demonstrated exceptionally every day. The Rochester General Hospital Association and Twigs having been instrumental in the founding of RGH continues here today in sharing history and raising money for the hospital. Our list of allocations is lengthy and rich.

RGH, RRHS and RGHA each find serving our community not only an obligation, a privilege. I would like to extend an invitation to you to share the many opportunities available for your involvement in hopes you too will find a fulfilling place with us in supporting Rochester General Hospital. Until then, keep your eyes and ears open. Exciting changes are coming!
