Welcome to Ivinson Memorial Hospital
Celebrating Our Success and Our 100 - Year Anniversary
We are proud of our accomplishments this year, most especially since it is our 100-year anniversary. We've worked hard and we know our patients will benefit from the improvements that have been implemented, both regarding patient care and the completion of the new medical office building.
As you are aware, healthcare is rapidly changing which has required hospitals around the country to adjust to the new healthcare environment. We have taken several important steps this year to prepare for the future.
The most obvious improvement to the hospital is the completion of the new medical office building which opened August 2017 and the renovation of several of our hospital departments. We designed the new medical office building with the goal of improving the patient experience and the response from the community has been overwhelmingly positive. The new clinic now houses all of the Ivinson Medical Group providers under one roof, as well as our visiting physicians. Additionally, we have remodeled our Cancer Center and redesigned our Lab and Radiology departments. To keep up with the latest equipment and technology, we have installed the latest 3D mammography unit, a 64-Slice CT Scanner, and a surgical robot. Finally, our visitors and patients will appreciate the convenience of our new covered parking garage, most especially during winter.
Another timely and important step was taken by the Board of Trustees and approved by the Albany County Commissioners. This was the decision to transition our governance structure from a District hospital to a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. I see this transition as a structure for success allowing the hospital to: a) improve operations; b) recruit talent; c) maintain our financial stability; and d) pursue potential partnerships. All this translates into an improved community asset owned by the citizens of Albany County and one that benefits all of us.
As we journey down the path of continuous improvement, I want to thank the citizens of Albany County and surrounding area for choosing Ivinson Memorial Hospital for all your health care needs. We know you have a choice and our goal is to continually improve the quality of care we provide. We are committed to earning your trust.
Thank you for your continued support of Ivinson Memorial Hospital. We look forward to serving you into the next century.
