Education through creative pathways and partnerships
The Rochester General College of Health Careers (RGCOHC) is honored to be a part of Rochester Regional Health. Together with Rochester Regional, we share a mission of enhancing lives and preserving health by enabling access to a comprehensive, fully integrated network of the highest quality and most affordable care, delivered with kindness, integrity, and respect. Rochester Regional Health has a long-standing tradition of providing health care education to support the needs of the Rochester community, and health profession education is an essential part of the organization's mission, vision, and values.
RGCOHC is a private, independent, not-for-profit academic institution entity of the Rochester Regional Health System. In September 2020, the New York State Board of Regents approved the College of Health Careers as a degree granting institution. The first degree program is an Associate in Applied Science with a major in nursing - an LPN to ADN program. Rochester Regional Health was home to the Isabella Graham Hart School of Practical Nursing, which offers a practical nurse certificate. This program will transition to the College of Health Careers beginning January 2021.
We are dedicated to preparing adult learners with the knowledge, skills, and competencies necessary to pursue health careers, advanced education, and lifelong learning.
Our vision is to be a community leader in health care education through creative pathways and partnerships.
Our private and modern facility was designed for the sole purpose of training students enrolled in health career related programs.
