Biography

Dr. Bill Morehouse completed the Family Medicine Program at Highland in 1973 and then spent a year at Westside Health Services and another as an industrial physician at Kodak before joining with others to open the comprehensive faith-based practices in Rochester he's been serving in ever since. Grace Family Medicine and its newer satellite Joy Family Medicine, together comprising His Branches Health Services, primarily serve underprivileged populations on Rochester's SW and NE sides with comprehensive family medical care.

In addition to providing a full range of pediatric, adult, geriatric, and maternity care (including normal obstetrics and inpatient care at Strong, Highland, and Unity Hospitals), Dr. Morehouse and his colleagues precept students and residents. Their offices also house and back up active crisis pregnancy centers, provide student health coverage at Elim Bible Institute, and are involved in community and youth outreach.

Dr. Morehouse has done international missions work, and he and his wife Susan remain supportive of others who are interested in missions as advisors to the Medical Center Christian Fellowship. Susan is a professional harpist who plays at URMC and throughout the community. Together they have a wonderfully full life with four grown children and four grandchildren (so far). In their spare time, they enjoy hiking, skiing, traveling, and an occasional canoe trip to the Adirondacks.
