Our System is built on the strengths of each member, including the extraordinary role each plays in their home community. At the same time, the System makes Albany Medical Center’s advanced care readily available to patients from the mid-Hudson Valley to the North Country. In essence, patients have the best of both worlds: community-based care from physicians they know and trust as well as easy access to the highly specialized services of the region’s only academic
medical center.
