Partnerships with the Rochester Community

We have partnered with the Rochester community to help join in our mission. We are committed to developing the diversity of our future workforce with a range of programs including:

  • The Isabella Graham Hart School of Practical Nursing (IGHSPN): Located at The Wegman Center for Workforce Development on Portland Avenue, IGHSPN offers state-of-the art teaching technology. The 2017 graduating class received their licensed practical nursing certificates of completion in November and a majority of the graduates have now joined our Rochester Regional family.
  • The Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection: As a Hillside-Work Scholarship Connection partner, Rochester Regional supports urban youth with unique health care employment and educational opportunities. Our program provides on-the-job training, academic guidance and life skills development.
  • The Youth Apprentice Program: Rochester Regional Health’s Youth Apprentice Program provides students in the Rochester City School District with specialized training and necessary tools and resources for a successful career in health care. The training prepares students for positions, including patient care technician, pediatric technician, material record assistant and respiratory care aide.
  • The MedQuest Day Camp: In this interactive, hands-on experience for students in grades 9-12, students see first-hand how health care professionals at Rochester Regional Health collaborate in the delivery of outstanding patient care and the vast careers available from nursing to radiology, emergency medicine and more!
