Highland Hospital

Highland Hospital holds a unique place within Strong Health. Throughout its 114-year history, Highland Hospital has continued to evolve to meet Rochester’s changing health care needs. The Hospital on the hill near beautiful Highland Park first opened its doors in 1889 and helped develop the foundation for Rochester’s innovative health care system that we know today.

Highland is known for its comprehensive women’s services, nationally ranked geriatrics program, regional leading gastric bypass program, extensive network of primary care physicians, highly skilled orthopaedic surgeons, the Evarts Joint Center and much more.

Throughout the years, Highland has always focused on providing high quality patient care and fulfilling its mission as a community hospital by offering comprehensive clinical services that meet the needs of our patients. That patient-centered focus of care is a significant part of the internal culture with our employees, physicians and leadership. Highland pride is visible throughout the organization and part of the promise of our health care team to provide exemplary customer service every day.

Highland offers a unique experience to its patients and visitors. From the friendly greeting at the reception desk to the courtesy knock on the door by an attentive nurse, Highland’s health care team is ready to make your visit a pleasant one.

Our statistics are proof:

  • A significantly high percentage of patients are satisfied with Highland Hospital and would recommend us to their friends and family.
  • Ninety percent of our physicians are board certified in their respective medical specialties.
