Rochester General Health System (RGHS) has named Eugene P. Toy, MD, to the dual positions of Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Director of Gynecologic Oncology. These appointments will take effect October 1, 2013.
Dr. Toy received his Medical Doctorate from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and completed a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Rochester Medical Center. He completed a fellowship in Gynecologic Oncology at Yale University School of Medicine, and is board certified in Obstetrics & Gynecology, and in Gynecologic Oncology.
Dr. Toy, who pioneered the use of robotics in gynecologic oncology surgery at Rochester General Hospital, has practiced in the Rochester area for the past 11 years. In addition to his clinical and administrative duties, he is an active researcher in scientific studies of cancer-causing proteins of the human papillomavirus.
“After an exhaustive search, we were delighted to find our new Chief of OB/GYN Services already within the Rochester General community,” said Robert Mayo, MD, Chief Medical Officer. “Dr. Toy’s exceptional clinical and administrative skills are matched by an intuitive patient-focused sensibility. We are extremely fortunate to have him rejoin our health system in this permanent and important role, as we continue to refine and enhance our OB/GYN, gynecologic oncology and robotic surgical offerings.”
RGHS is widely recognized as a national and regional leader in robotic surgical procedures; more than 5,000 robotic surgeries have been performed at RGH and Newark-Wayne Community Hospital, placing the health system in the top 5 percent of providers nationwide by volume. In addition, in 2012 Rochester General Hospital was named an AAGL Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology, in recognition of the hospital’s unparalleled commitment and ability to consistently deliver safe, effective care.
