We are so pleased to serve as the new site of the museum’s exhibits and archival material, and we are grateful to Rochester General Health System for the opportunity to form this partnership.
- Suzanne Welch, Former Academy Executive Director
There is a tremendous amount of history and many great stories related to these institutions, so it’s important this history has a safe place to live and be available to share,” Britton says. “The health care history in this area provides a great lens for looking at Rochester. It really is reflective of who we are as a community.
- Kathleen Britton, RMMA Director and Curator
RMMA’s collection consists of archival documents, photographs, costumes, material culture objects, and a series of oral interviews. All items relate to the history of Rochester General Hospital, the former Genesee Hospital, their associated schools of nursing, Newark-Wayne Community Hospital, and close to 20 other organizations whose roots trace back to Rochester General Health System or one of its affiliates.
