Hudson ENT will be joining the Albany Med Health System




“Dr. Kortbus, Lauren Dierlam, Maureen Lynch-Rinaldi and staff are happy to report that Hudson ENT will be joining the Albany Med Health System, which includes Albany Medical Center & Columbia Memorial Health. Hudson ENT will continue to see patients at our Red Hook offices. We are NOT moving our clinical site! As we prepare for the transition and outfit our current space, we will have availability for follow up appointments in the CMH Medical Office Building next to the hospital after June 14. Hudson ENT will resume seeing patients in our Red Hook offices effective early July.

Dr. Kortbus considers it an honor to have maintained Hudson ENT as a private practice for more than nine years and through a life-changing pandemic. The practice has grown and served more than eighteen thousand patients in this time. Combined with his time serving patients in Rhinebeck prior to the start-up of Hudson ENT, Dr. Kortbus has served over 30,000 patients in the area. This next chapter invites Dr. Kortbus to join more than twenty other otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeon colleagues as Professor of Otolaryngology with the prestigious Albany Medical College.

We are proud to join the only regionally governed, not-for-profit health system serving northeastern New York and western New England. Strong partnerships like this enhance quality of care. With four hospitals working together, the Albany Med Health System brings more resources to more communities. Please stay tuned for further updates on this exciting transition!”
