University of Rochester Medicine
The clinical link between Cayuga Medical Center and URMC was strengthened in 2013 when neurosurgeon Dr. James Metcalf Jr. joined the neurosurgery departments at both medical centers. The level of care at URMC is widely recognized as among the best in the nation. U.S. News and World Report has ranked the URMC Department of Neurosciences among the top hospitals in the country and the number one hospital in the Rochester metro area. The relationship with URMC helps to advance neurosciences at Cayuga Medical Center in a rapidly evolving field. The criteria and protocols developed at URMC for stroke patients and spinal surgery patients are available at Cayuga Medical Center.
In an additional collaboration with URMC, neurologist Dr. Deana Bonno joined Cayuga Medical Center in 2015, advancing the level of care for area patients diagnosed with epilepsy. Neurologists and neurosurgeons on staff at Cayuga Medical Center continue to collaborate on services that can be offered jointly.
