Highland Hospital

"When you think of Highland Hospital, you think of a ""community hospital"" that treats its patients with compassion in a friendly and caring atmosphere. The Highland Hospital motto is ""Compassion Heals."" Throughout its history, Highland Hospital has continued to evolve to meet Rochester's changing health care needs. The Hospital on the hill overlooking beautiful Highland Park first opened its doors in 1889 as one of the first homeopathic hospitals in the United States. In 1921, Highland became the first hospital in the country to use insulin in the treatment of diabetes. Today Highland is well known for its comprehensive orthopaedics services, women's services, nationally ranked geriatrics program, regional leading bariatrics surgery center, extensive network of primary care physicians, newly renovated radiation oncology department, medical imaging, cardiology, neurology, and much more. One thing that makes Highland unique is its warm, caring environment. Employees and physicians take time to explain things to patients and to warmly greet people in the hallways with a friendly smile. The culture is rooted in the Highland Promise, the hospital's commitment to service and operational excellence. Highland is striving to be the best hospital in America for patients and employees. Highland's mission, vision, and values are present throughout the organization and are supported every day by the actions of employees and physicians. Mission: Commitment to excellence in health care, with patients and their families at the heart of all that we do. Vision: We deliver Medicine of the Highest Order in a community hospital where compassion, quality and patient and family-centered care are our guiding principles. Our affiliation with a world-class medical center will allow us to provide the best of both worlds: state of the art medicine and personalized care. Values: Integrity, Compassion, Accountability, Respect, & Excellence Highland offers a unique experience to its patients and visitors. From the friendly greeting at the reception desk to the courtesy knock on the door by an attentive nurse, Highland's health care team is ready to make every visit a pleasant one."
