Making a Difference

Every day.  Every year.  Every purchase you make at the Friends of Strong Gift Shop, and Baby Photography Service helps support patient- and family-centered care initiatives at UR Medicine's Strong Memorial Hospital.  Since 1975, Friends of Strong has given more that $16 million to departments and programs throughout URMC.

Friends of Strong advances the mission of Strong Memorial Hospital by providing services to patients, families, and visitors; promoting the hospital in the community; and raising money to support patient care needs.

Much-needed funds are raised though proceeds from initiatives that include this gift shop, as well as our fundraising events and partnerships with various organizations, such as Finger Lakes Coffee Roasters at Strong Memorial Hospital and Mom 365 newborn baby photography.
