At Rochester Regional Health, one of our key focus areas is looking for new ways to improve care throughout our region. Through a two-part modernization project at United Memorial Medical Center (UMMC), we’re adding 5,000 square feet to the radiology department and improving the technology and services available.

“It’s a priority to expand access to care in the Batavia community,” said Eric Bieber, MD, Rochester Regional Health CEO. “That started with the Lipson Cancer Institute and it doesn’t end with the new imaging center.”

Building new radiology care in Batavia

When both phases of the nearly $8 million construction project are complete, the UMMC radiology clinic and services will include a new:

  • MRI Suite
  • 10-bed Intensive Care Unit (ICU)
  • Blood draw station
  • Dressing room area
  • Welcome center and scheduling office
  • Cooling system and infrastructure that will allow for further growth of services on the UMMC campus

“The radiology department is heading into the future with state-of-the-art technology created with patient comfort in mind and the ability to minimize scan times and improve image quality,” said Barry Rosenberg, MD, United Memorial Medical Center Chief of Radiology.

The first phase of the enhancements is scheduled to be completed halfway through 2022 and the entire project will be completed by 2024.

“This expansion is a testament to both Rochester Regional and the community’s investment in local healthcare,” said Dan Ireland, President of United Memorial Medical Center. “This project is for you, the community, built by you, with your generous donations and support over the years.”
