Rochester in the News
Wall Street Journal (Jan. 18)
Rochester Wasn’t Eastman Kodak’s Fatal Problem
“I beg to differ with Rich Karlgaard’s ‘Kodak Didn’t Kill Rochester; It Was the Other Way Around’ (op-ed, Jan. 13). Rochester has always been an entrepreneurial locale dating to the days of the construction of the Erie Canal,” writes Mark Zupan, Simon School dean.

Visitors and staff buy nearly 1 million meals a year in the cafeteria at Strong Memorial Hospital. At noon on a weekday, it can seem like they’re all being dished out at once. By March, the hospital will start a $6 million modernization that will make the 5,000-square-foot cafeteria more airy and easier to navigate, and emphasize nutritional food.
