The Wegman Family Charitable Foundation has committed $5 million to support patient care and capital improvements in the Rochester Regional Health system.

Officials say it is one of the largest made to the health system’s $300 million fundraising campaign.

In recognition of the gift, the Rochester Regional Health Learning Center will be renamed the Wegman Center for Workforce Development at Rochester Regional Health.

Renovations to the building will be completed in the fall. The Wegmans foundation joins the Sands Family Foundation, Constellation Brands and the Riedman Foundation as a lead contributor to the fundraising campaign.
