‘Faces of Albany Med’ Greet Visitors and Staff in Main Hospital Corridor
Each time a visitor or staff member walks down Albany Med’s main corridor, they will now be greeted by the people who bring our mission of patient care, research and education to life every day. Thirty ‘Faces of Albany Med’ photo displays now adorn the most traveled pathway at the hospital. The project was an initiative of the Albany Med CARES program, which represents the organization’s commitment to compassion, accountability, respect and engagement.
The photos represent just some of the organization’s 10,000 employees and students from across different departments and disciplines.
Analyn Nocus, RN, from Renal Transplant said, “When I saw my photo in the hallway, it was an honor to be included among the faces of people who work at Albany Med. It reflects the hard work that I’ve shared with my patients and their families in the almost 15 years that I’ve worked here. I’ve always considered Albany Med my second family, and I’m just so happy that I’ve been included in this display.”
“Even though I work here at Albany Med, I rarely get to see the inside of an operating room,” said Administrative Support Associate Tony Rivera. “For our visitors and other staff members, it’s really cool. I have so much respect for what everybody does here. Seeing these people in action and highlighting what they do is really awesome. I think it’s great for everyone to see."
“When I think of community, I think of the people who make a place feel like home, and that’s definitely one of the feelings I got walking through the hall looking at the pictures of everybody,” said Albany Medical College student Ankita Veta. “I instantly recognized a few classmates, a few of the staff who work around the hospital that I pass daily and say hi to. So, to see them be recognized as a part of Albany Med and to see their smiling faces on the wall, it was a really great feeling.”
The photos were installed by Albany Med’s Facilities Department.
