People are living longer than ever. Advances in medicine & technology are not only helping us live longer, but live better as well. A healthy and happy retirement requires careful planning. At the U of R, we are committed to supporting you through this process and beyond.
Retirement. Ever. Better.
The Office of Total Rewards presents The Retiree Spotlight! Staying connected to our University of Rochester retirees is important to us. To show how much we appreciate them and their years of dedication to the University, we’ve given our retirees the opportunity to tell us who they are, how long they’ve been with the University of Rochester and what they are up to now. We thank you for your hard work and years of dedication!
Patricia Oster. After dedicating 41 years to the University of Rochester, Pat retired in June of 2018. Pat joined the University right after nursing school as a registered nurse in the Medical ICU. She later transferred to the University Health Service and remained there for 33 years up until retirement. Pat truly enjoyed her years spent working at the U of R in both the ICU and UHS. She misses all the people she worked with as they were a second family to her, always being there for each other. In retirement, Pat has enjoyed being able to connect with old friends, reading, and gardening. Her daughter finished nursing school and passed her boards in February, carrying on the nursing legacy. Pat is loving retirement.
We recommend that employees nearing retirement attend an informational session 6 months – 1 year before your anticipated retirement date. Not able to make it to one of our informational sessions?
