The Sands-Constellation Center for Critical Care is redesigning how healthcare is delivered and redefining what healthcare can do. On track to open in 2020, the new building at Rochester General Hospital is part of Rochester Regional Health’s goal to provide the highest level of care for the community and focus on what matters to patients in greater Rochester and the Finger Lakes region.

“The Sands-Constellation Center for Critical Care will boast the most advanced technology, modernized equipment, and the region’s best doctors,” said Eric Bieber, MD and CEO for Rochester Regional Health.

“This is a complete overhaul of the entire hospital and will set the stage for other major projects across the entire system.”
