Albany Medical Center

Albany Medical Center and St. Peter’s Health Partners are suspending COVID-19 community testing, the hospitals announced on Thursday evening.

Effective immediately, St. Peter’s will be testing only symptomatic health-care providers at its Albany Memorial Campus at 600 Northern Blvd. in Albany.

The president of Albany Medical Center, Dennis McKenna, estimates Albany Med has two to three days left of testing kits for COVID-19. “We are dependent on availability of tests,” he said. “If kits are in short supply, they will be kept for patients in-house or the population most at risk.”

Lisa Campo-Engelstein, Ph.D. of Altamont was chosen by the BBC as one of “100 inspiring and influential women from around the world for 2019.” She teaches students at Albany Medical College about the human side of being a doctor. In this week’s podcast, Campo-Engelstein talks with passion about her work as a feminist bioethicist.

When first responders arrived at the scene of an accident in Feura Bush on Tuesday, they found a car on its roof and the 86-year-old driver trapped inside.

Last Thursday at the SEFCU arena on the campus of the University at Albany, an event called "we care" was held where around 700 volunteers helped fill bags for sexual assault victims that enter Albany Medical Center's Emergency room.

The facility is open every day, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., including holidays.
