Quality Health Care Provided
Rochester is proud of the many excellent health care facilities, dedicated physicians, skilled nurses and technicians that are available to meet the health care needs of the community. A wide range of health care services are available to residents of Rochester and surrounding communities.
Frisbie Memorial Hospital
Frisbie Memorial Hospital has been providing quality health care services for over one hundred years. Its long-standing commitment to improving community health began in 1916. Eagle Hospital, prior to Frisbie’s incorporation in 1919 - with only ten beds, one physician and four nurses – had provided the medical services to the greater Rochester community. Today, Frisbie Memorial Hospital is licensed for 112 beds and employs over 700. The hospital offers a broad range of medical, diagnostic, behavioral, and surgical services, providing access to a comprehensive network of medical providers that includes specialty care in the areas of orthopedics, pulmonary medicine, urology, oncology, obstetrics and gynecology, ophthalmology, and many more.
Through the adoption of best practices in medical, surgical and behavioral health services, Frisbie continues to be recognized nationally for patient safety and satisfaction. The private, tax-paying hospital is a member of HCA Healthcare’s Capital Division, one of the nation’s leading providers of healthcare services.
Bringing medical services close to home
Having convenient access to quality health care services brings comfort in knowing patients’ primary and specialty care providers, as well as state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging services, are close to home. This includes Frisbie Memorial’s hospital-based Emergency Medical Services ambulance, which provides over 7,000 transports each year, and Mobile Integrated Health program (MIH). Unique to Frisbie, the MIH program is designed to mitigate gaps in care – post hospital discharge – and reduce chronic disease-related complications by bringing medical services to the homes of individuals who have primary diagnoses of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and congestive heart failure. The model employs community paramedic providers to better promote continuity of care, standardize chronic disease management and improve overall health outcomes.
