The University of Rochester Medical Center is one of the top academic medical centers in the country and the only one in our area. The hospitals, research centers, physicians’ offices, schools and health services attract patients and doctors from all over the world. The University of Rochester Medical Center is made up of many parts, all devoted to the same three goals: Providing highly advanced medical care, discovering cures for the world's most challenging diseases, and educating the doctors, dentists and nurses of tomorrow. This, they state, is the only way to provide Medicine of the Highest Order.

The URMC is made up of many entities, including:

URMC occupies a 4-million-square-foot complex located between Elmwood Avenue, Mount Hope Avenue, Genesee Valley Park, and Lattimore Road.

In January 2008 the U of R announced a $500 million strategic plan geared toward expansion in research and patient services. The plan has the potential to add 800 new jobs to the university. Part of the expansion will include building a new 6 story, 123 bed addition to the hospital, a building for clinical and translational sciences, and a new ambulatory surgery center to be built on Westfall Road.
