Robert Mayomayo-rob

Chief Medical Officer, Rochester Regional Health

Years in current role: 8

What do you enjoy most about your role?

It is gratifying to find systemic solutions that improve the work of employees and providers while improving the quality of care of patients.

What has been the biggest challenge you’ve dealt with over the past year?

Certainly the pace of change during the COVID-19 pandemic was very challenging. Keeping the entire health system moving in a coordinated fashion required significant effort by leaders at all levels throughout the organization.

What do you see as the biggest changes in the health care industry in the next 3-5 years?

The broader use of technology will continue to grow. This will likely take several forms such as: telehealth, advanced home care options, electronic patient education, patient interfaces with the electronic medical record.

What community organizations do you support as a volunteer and why?

I am a firm believer in giving back to the community. I am a United Way volunteer because of the United Way’s commitment to serving a broad scope of needs across the community. They are an amazing organization that does a great deal of good through mobilizing thousands of volunteers and donors for the greater good. During the past 18 months, I have volunteered on the city of Rochester’s Race Equity and Leadership COVID-19 Rapid Response Team. I support this effort because of their commitment to eliminating many community inequities. I also spend a great deal of time volunteering in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I believe in the church’s emphasis on service and compassion.

What are you most looking forward to doing as COVID restrictions ease?

I am very grateful that the pandemic has lessened significantly. I look forward to spending more time with family and friends.
