Recognizing Our Extraordinary Nurses
Albany Medical Center is proud to recognize members of our nursing team for excellence in patient care and leadership. No accomplishment is too small to make a big difference on our team. Congratulations to our nurses on their most recent successes.
Pillars of Nursing Excellence
The Pillars of Nursing Excellence Award is one of the most prestigious honors bestowed by Albany Medical Center for nurses exhibiting excellence in patient care and leadership. Each year, staff are invited to nominate nurses for a Pillars award. The six winners are recognized during Nurses Week. Read about our 2023 Pillars of Nursing honorees.
Neurology Nurse Receives I CARE Award

Since that time, she has worked her way to an LPN, and recently became a registered nurse through Albany Medical Center's Grow Our Own program. I CARE is a staff recognition award that honors employees who go above and beyond the expectations of the Albany Med CARES program through compassion, accountability, respect, and engagement.
