Specialized surgical care closer to home

When it comes to your health, you want the best care possible - the ability to meet face-to-face with your physician, review your medical history, explain your symptoms and share important information - and we wouldn't have it any other way.

The Rochester Regional Telemedicine Center provides patients with convenient, timely access to superior surgical care by bringing the health care closer to home. Patients in Wayne County and rural areas throughout the Greater Rochester region have the ability to meet virtually with physicians, surgeons and specialists from across Rochester Regional Health using advanced telemedicine technology.

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine uses video, audio and Internet technology to bring patients face-to-face in real-time with specialists in other locations for leading-edge medical treatments - without having to spend time traveling long distances for care.

If you have a major medical condition, the Rochester Regional Telemedicine Center can expedite your testing, diagnosis and treatment, giving you timely access to physicians and surgeons trained to treat your specific condition or injury.

Telemedicine services offer several time- and cost-saving advantages.
