Adirondack Medical Center was established in January, 1991 with the consolidation of the General Hospital of Saranac Lake and Placid Memorial Hospital in Lake Placid. It is a 100 bed acute care general hospital, the largest in the six million acre Adirondack Park, with hospital sites in Saranac Lake and Lake Placid.
A health care facility serving the residents of five counties, the Medical Center offers a broad range of inpatient and outpatient medical and surgical services. AMC also operates four hospital based primary health clinics in Lake Placid, Tupper Lake, Keene and Wilmington with a dental clinic in Lake Placid which serves all patients including Medicaid recipients.
A formalized Sports Medicine Program is located in the south wing of the Lake Placid facility. An Oncology Program, affiliated with Albany Medical Center and located in Saranac Lake, is an invaluable resource for north country cancer patients. AMC has a dedicated Renal Center at the main campus in Saranac Lake which serves both area patients and visitors to the Adirondack region. AMC's newest service, the Colby Center for Geriatric Psychiatry at the Saranac Lake facility, offers hope to older adults who are experiencing serious emotional/behavioral difficulties. – less–ZoomInfo
