Canandaigua Orthopaedics Associates to join Rochester Regional Health

Canandaigua Orthopaedics Associates, a leading provider of care in the Finger Lakes area since 1979, is joining Rochester Regional Health on Oct. 1.

Local patients will still visit their team of experts and board-certified surgeons at the same Canandaigua office. However, patients will now have the added benefit of undergoing surgeries in the brand-new operating suite at nearby Clifton Springs Hospital & Clinic. This spring, the hospital opened its new operating suite, which includes a patient access center, pre-admission evaluation unit, procedure rooms, recovery rooms, and some of the most technologically advanced operating rooms in Upstate New York.

“Partnering with Rochester Regional Health gives us the best opportunity to remain the community-oriented practice we have been for more than 40 years,” said physician Robert Meyer, managing partner of Canandaigua Orthopaedics Associates. “This will allow us to continue to be a part of the community, remain local and accessible, and continue to provide the highest level of care to our patients. We are excited about the transformation going on at Clifton Springs Hospital, and we are honored that Rochester Regional has invited us to join them. Together we will be providing surgical care in one of the most modern surgical facilities in Upstate New York and with more resources to help our patients live healthier and happier lives.”

In addition to the new facilities at Clifton Springs, patients of Canandaigua Orthopaedics Associates will have access to a broad range of complementary resources offered by Rochester Regional Health, including specialists in physical therapy, occupational therapy, pain management, and primary care.

“We’re excited to have Canandaigua Orthopaedics Associates joining our team. Rochester Regional Health continues to invest in our community, and we are committed to transforming health care in the Finger Lakes Region,” said physician Dustin Riccio, president of Rochester Regional Health’s Clifton Springs Hospital & Clinic and Newark-Wayne Community Hospital. “Everyone should have a comprehensive network of care close to home. We are proud to build that network and have Canandaigua Orthopaedics Associates in a significant role.”

This announcement is the latest in a growing list of investments Rochester Regional Health has made in the Finger Lakes area. In addition to completing the new operating suite at Clifton Springs, it opened a new multi-specialty destination campus in Geneva, began Phase Three of the $32 million medical village project at Clifton Springs and announced plans to build a new emergency department at Clifton Springs Hospital, expected to open by early 2022.
