Strong Memorial Hospital

  • Annual funds helped us renovate operating rooms and create private inpatient rooms. This helped Strong gain attention as a national leader in patient safety, patient engagement, and clinical connectedness to improve patient care.
  • Support provided the latest technology for our patients. Our advanced heart failure program helped us become one of the nation’s leading centers for research on and development of ventricular assist devices (VADs). Strong Memorial Hospital is the only comprehensive heart failure and transplant center in upstate New York, allowing patients and families to be closer to home while waiting for heart donations. Since the program’s inception in 2001, we have performed over 225 heart transplants and implanted over 400 VADs.
