Two Capital Region hospitals officially merged on New Year’s Day.

Albany Memorial Hospital and Samaritan Hospital in Troy have merged to become a single legal entity.

As a result of the merger, Albany Memorial becomes a remote location of Samaritan Hospital. Officials with Saint Peter’s Health Partners say the merger will have no impact on services or care provided at either facility.

Signage at 600 Northern Boulevard in Albany will reflect the change, reading Samaritan Hospital – Albany Memorial Campus.

St. Peter’s Health Partners requested the merger that was approved by state regulators on December 12th.
