You must complete a mandatory orientation session that includes instruction on patient confidentiality, universal precautions, fire and safety rules, OSHA safety standards, and security and emergency preparedness.

Employee Health Services will provide state-mandated physicals and administer any necessary vaccines and a TB skin test free of charge. Flu vaccination is mandatory.

Albany Medical Center Auxiliary

Founded in 1951, the Albany Medical Center Auxiliary is a volunteer service organization supporting our mission of providing the highest quality of care. This may involve financially supporting the hospital or efforts that contribute to the care and comfort of patients.

Membership dues are $10 a year. Lifetime membership is granted with a one-time payment of $200.

The Auxiliary raises money through the hospital's thrift shop, vendor sales, a holiday sale, book sales, and other events. The Volunteer office houses a library of used books for sale.
