Chief Nursing Officers

In 2014, we formed the Rochester Regional Health Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) Council to capitalize on nurse leadership resources and expertise across our system. The Council provides insight and counsel on clinical services, quality, risk management, human resources, and operations.
