We’d like to hear it!

At Albany Med, we are known for our expertise, but chosen for our care. Those words are not just our motto; they’re words that guide us every day.

We frequently hear from people who want to share with us about someone who went above any beyond - perhaps it was one of our world-class doctors, or a member of our nursing staff. Maybe it was a cashier in our gift shop who provided you with exemplary customer service or a staff member who helped you find your way.
