About Telemedicine

Bringing healthcare closer to home

Using advanced telemedicine technology, our multidisciplinary team of physicians and surgeons meets with you in real-time to effectively diagnose your symptoms and determine the best course of action for your treatment. You’ll have access to experienced specialists from across Rochester Regional Health and receive the same personalized healthcare delivered at all of our related facilities—without having to travel there.

Telemedicine services offer several time- and cost-saving advantages. In most cases, our surgeons are able to provide comprehensive screening, diagnosis, and pre- and postsurgical care through the Telemedicine Center at Newark-Wayne Community Hospital. You will only need to travel to Rochester General Hospital or Unity Hospital for your actual surgery or any related follow-up procedures. Telehealth surgery appointments offer the following benefits:  

  • Specialty Care - Patients in Wayne and Genesee Counties and other rural areas have access to the same specialists and superior level of care delivered throughout Rochester Regional Health.

  • Timely Access - In healthcare, timing can be critical. The Telemedicine Center provides fast access to expert surgical care in real-time and eliminates added travel.

  • Reduced Travel & Expense – Telemedicine offers the same quality care in a more cost-effective way by reducing travel expenses and time spent traveling to and from appointments. It also lowers the burden on family and caregivers who may need to provide transportation.

Our team is committed to providing you with superior care closer to where you live. If would like to schedule an appointment or learn more about our telemedicine services, contact us at any time.
