Albany Medical Center serves more than three million people in 25 counties of Eastern New York and Western New England. As one of only 125 academic medical centers in the country, Albany Medical Center consists of a teaching hospital and a medical college with biomedical research facilities.
Albany Medical Center is the only teaching hospital linked to a medical school in New York’s Capital Region—and the hospital of choice for over 30,000 admitted patients each year. Patients rely on us for unique programs including a state designated Level-I Trauma Center and the region’s most sophisticated Emergency Department. In fact, according to New York State DOH SPARCS data, Albany Med is one of the busiest trauma centers in the entire state.
Other key Albany Med programs and services include the only regional kidney and pancreas transplantation program; an off-site ambulatory surgery center; a modern Breast Care Center; the region’s only perinatal outreach center; a Children’s Hospital with a level-4 NICU and a center for childhood cancer and blood disorders; an air medical transport service, LifeNet; and a state-designated AIDS Treatment Center.
