Emergency Medicine

Message from Chair, Christopher King, MD, FACEP

As Chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine, I am proud to lead the clinical, education and research activities of Albany Medical Center’s emergency department—a facility that admitted more than 68,000 patients last year.
There has never been a time like now in our Department of Emergency Medicine.

Albany Med is expanding the reach of our emergency medicine services by establishing—in partnership with a leading community hospital—a new 24-hour urgent care facility in Saratoga County. Opening in 2013, this facility will be a first class resource for acute and emergency care. Not only that, but Albany Med’s Trauma Center continues to be the most active trauma center in New York State equipped to provide comprehensive emergency medical services to patients with traumatic injuries. In addition, we continue to add talented physicians to our team who are teaching the next generation of emergency medicine doctors.

The Department of Emergency Medicine’s commitment to providing the highest quality of medical education, research and care will continue with the same intensity in the future. We invite you to be a part of this commitment to excellence by learning more about our unique programs and services.

Christopher King, MD, FACEP
