It’s who we are and what we help build.

Many of the health challenges confronting Rochester and the Finger Lakes region are impossible for any single organization to solve alone.

That’s why Common Ground Health brings together leaders from across our nine-county region to collaborate on strategies for improving health. Hospitals. Insurers. Universities. Businesses. Nonprofits. Government. Faith communities. Residents. All have a seat at our tables.

Our Impact


At Common Ground Health, we believe the first step to solving a problem is measuring it. We maintain the region’s most comprehensive collection of health and health care data and provide the analytic expertise needed to make sense of that information.
