The Stratton VA Medical Center, part of VA Health Care Upstate New York, is located in the heart of Albany, New York. Located in the capital of New York State, this medical center serves veterans in a 100-mile radius. Opened in 1951, the medical center serves veterans in 22 counties of Upstate New York, Western Massachusetts and Vermont.
In 1990, this facility was named in honor of Samuel S. Stratton, U.S. Congressman of the 23rd District, a staunch supporter of veterans and a frequent visitor to the hospital. The medical center provides primary care, wellness and prevention outpatient care, and comprehensive primary, secondary and tertiary inpatient care in medicine, plus a full range of outpatient services. Veterans Benefit Counselors are available at this medical center, as well as a comfort home and hostel for outpatients and their families. Our Voluntary Service office supports the delivery of veteran health services through volunteerism and donations from community and service organizations in the Albany area.
The primary care program provides services at the medical center and at several community based outpatient clinics in: Glens Falls, Sidney, Elizabethtown, Schenectady, Troy, Kingston, Plattsburgh, Malone, Clifton Park, Fonda, and Catskill, as well as one in Bennington, Vermont. These practices serve an integral role in the provision of expanded primary and preventive medical services.
