About the Department of Nursing at Highland

Nursing at Highland Hospital

A Family-Like Environment

Highland is a community hospital with a nurturing, family-like environment.

We are 261-bed not-for-profit acute-care community hospital and are a nationally-ranked leader in a number of specialties, including women's health, breast care, geriatrics, joint care, and bariatrics.

Our association with the University of Rochester Medical Center gives nurses unparalleled opportunities for educational and professional development. As part of Strong Health, the largest health system in the region, we provide comprehensive medical care, enhanced by a robust research component that is unusual for a community hospital.

Highland's reputation for excellence, combined with its 100-year tradition of innovation, makes it an exciting place for nurses interested in progressive patient care, personal growth, and professional participation. While we’re constantly evolving, we never forget our roots.
