Rebuilding Lives

When it comes to comprehensive neurologic care, it’s about caring for a patient’s body, mind, and spirit. It’s taking an unimaginable circumstance, and making it a defining moment of strength and perseverance.

We see more patients with brain injuries, perform more spine surgeries, and treat more stroke cases than any care provider in the region. We have created a national model for recovery with the Golisano Restorative Neurology & Rehabilitation Center, the area’s only program accredited by CARF for Comprehensive Integrated Inpatient Rehabilitation, Brain Injury and Stroke, and developed the area’s first Concussion Management Program.

When you give to the Neuroscience Institute at Rochester Regional Health, you’re giving our patients the chance to cope with the incurable, recover from the traumatic, or survive the potentially fatal. You’re helping them restore function, hope, and live a life pain-free.


Give Now

So many people have trusted us after accidents, falls, strokes, heart attacks - some of the most devastating setbacks imaginable. It's been our honor to help these people rebuild their lives and we look forward to continuing our work for years to come.

Building A Network

The effects of neurological diseases, disorders, and injuries can be devastating and life-altering. But regardless of severity, no issue involving the brain or spine should ever leave us feeling like there is no available treatment or path to recovery. The Neuroscience Institute extends access to the highest quality of care, for the widest range of needs, to the broadest geographic region possible.

Together, we can connect patients, wherever they are in our system, to distinguished specialists and experts and innovative neurotechnology that improves their function, as well as the way we diagnose, treat, and monitor their conditions.

Your support will help us build a network that improves the efficiency and quality of neurological care in our region.

Our Impact, Together

A gift to the Neuroscience Institute is a gift to the entire community and generations to come. By helping to make the vision of the Neuroscience Institute a reality, you are helping more people who are afflicted with a serious neurological condition, or recovering from a severe injury, live longer and enjoy a higher quality of life.

“Over the last two decades, we have felt a great deal of pride in what Rochester Regional Health has become. And the reason why is because it’s such a big part of our community and our lives, as well as those of our family and friends.

It’s wonderful knowing that if we have a health problem, there’s someone locally who can take care of it—especially if it involves the brain or spine. No one should ever have to suffer one of these diseases or injuries, but if they do, they should have the confidence that the care they need is right here. Our support ensures our community continues to have the best care available.”
