Heart & Vascular Care

Setting the Standard in the Capital Region

The Albany Med Health System provides excellent heart and vascular care using the latest techniques and leading-edge surgical procedures to address routine and complex medical issues.

Patients can receive heart care at Albany Medical Center, Glens Falls Hospital, and Saratoga Hospital, with the option to transfer patients in need of more advanced care to Albany Medical Center.

Because the Albany Med Health System is an academic health system, our patients have access to clinical trials for new treatments and devices, and they benefit from the ongoing research conducted at Albany Medical College.

Albany Medical Center has the largest Extracorporeal Life Support (ECMO) program in northeastern New York for treating heart failure and lung failure.
