The Genesee Hospital was founded in 1887 and open from September 19, 1889 to May 21, 2001. It was opened as the Rochester Homeopathic Hospital School of Nursing for residents on the east side of town as an alternative to the City Hospital across town, now known as Rochester General Hospital. The hospital had grown to 385 beds prior to its closing; see Gone, But Not Forgotten.


Money Battle

Property Reuse

During the Summer of 2006, Buckingham Properties completed the purchase of the hospital campus with plans to redevelop the area, called Alexander Park. As of August 2012, new corporate headquarters for MVP Health Care have been constructed on the corner of Monroe and Alexander. The MVP building also has a large space on the ground floor currently being advertised as a potential restaurant site.

There still remains a large empty lot and ruined section of the original hospital along Alexander Street, however. Hopefully there are plans at work to deal with that as well.
