Serving the upper Hudson Valley, and the medical school (with which it is affiliated) is one of the country's ACGME-accredited medical schools, Albany Medical Center is a large tertiary-care hospital.

Although the station and the hospital/medical school have both long gone their separate ways, the earliest years also included broadcasts of health information and lectures from visiting professors.
