  • Message from the Director of Perinatal Outreach Lisa Gray, MD:

Dear Regional Colleagues -

Given current COVID-19 restrictions, we have made a decision to postpone our upcoming RPC Outreach visits until fall.  The RPC’s internal protocols are rapidly evolving to meet the needs of our facility, community, and region, all of which I would be happy to share with you in the interests of maintaining the Finger Lakes Region’s high level of perinatal care in this time of crisis.  Please let me know how I best can be of assistance, and feel free to contact me or any of our outreach staff at UR Medical Center for any concerns related to maternal or neonatal transfers.  We wish you all the best in your efforts to keep your community safe and healthy!
