About Strong Nursing
What does it take to be there when it matters most?
Every nurse changes lives. That’s especially true of the nurses at the University of Rochester Medical Center-Strong Memorial Hospital. Our nurses work with the most advanced technology and care for the sickest patients in the area and do remarkable things every moment of every day.
Strong Memorial Hospital (SMH) is the primary acute care teaching hospital of The University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) and is consistently recognized as one of "America's Best Hospitals" by U.S. News & World Report.
SMH is a 739 bed, fully accredited regional referral center for Monroe County, New York, the surrounding east-west regions between Buffalo and Syracuse, and the counties to the south of Rochester, collectively known as the Finger Lakes Region. Strong operates the region's only transplant programs for heart, liver, kidney, and blood and bone marrow, and has the largest and most modern emergency department in the area. Its James P. Wilmot Cancer Center is a national leader in cancer research and practice.
