Our Facilities

Strong Memorial Hospital Main Entrance

One of the nation's top academic medical centers, the University of Rochester Medical Center forms the centerpiece of the University's health research, teaching, patient care, and community outreach missions. With more than $145 million in federal research funding, UR School of Medicine research funding ranks in the top one-quarter of U.S. medical centers, while the School of Nursing ranks 12th highest in funding. The University's health care delivery network is anchored by Strong Memorial Hospital—an 846-bed, University-owned teaching hospital—which boasts programs that consistently rank among "America's Best Hospitals," according to U.S. News & World Report.

We are fortunate to house several nationally recognized advanced treatment centers within our institution, and we provide Nephrology Consultative Services to patients within these programs.

Area Dialysis Units

The URMC Nephrology Group serve as medical directors and Nephrologists to patients in several area dialysis units. Fellows have the opportunity to follow patients in these facilities, and work closely with providers and staff to provide care to our local Hemodialysis and Peritoneal Dialysis patients.
