Get With the Guidelines

Helping you stay healthy

Get with the Guidelines

Patients admitted to Albany Memorial Hospital or Samaritan Hospital with heart disease or stroke benefit from our award-winning care pathways used to best manage their care.

Our hospitals participate in the American Heart Association's "Get With the Guidelines" programs for congestive heart failure, stroke and coronary artery disease. Our programs follow nationally recognized guidelines to provide patients with tools to help him or her stay as healthy as possible after discharge, including strategies for smoking cessation, weight management, eating right and exercise.
