Education through creative pathways and partnerships
The Isabella Graham Hart School of Practical Nursing (IGH) was founded in 1964 as a one year practical nursing program, associated with Rochester General Hospital. The school is named in honor of an outstanding benefactress of the hospital.
IGH was housed within the original Westside Division of Rochester City Hospital and moved in 1966 to the Northside Division of the Rochester City Hospital, now known as Rochester General Hospital. The school is currently located within the new, state of the art facility at the Rochester Regional Health Learning Center, 1630 Portland Avenue, Rochester, NY 14621
