The Collaboratory

Your Neighborhood Health Clinic

serving albany's south end residents

The Collaboratory, “laboratory for collaboration,” is located at 200 South Pearl Street in Albany. Signature services at The Collaboratory are delivered by ACPHS’s Public Health Pharmacy Team (PHPT) and Trinity Alliance’s Wellness Advocates Linking Communities (WALC) team.

Together, the programs address social justice and social determinants of health, with the shared goal of improving population health. We do this by equipping our community with the tools to maintain a meaningful connection to healthcare. Pharmacists have a long history of acting as public health advocates and practitioners within their communities and our community health workers bring a great community rapport to the table. This collaborative model bridges social support and healthcare, connecting individuals with resources and solutions to take ownership of their health.

Call us at 518-487-4117 to schedule your appointment. We also accept walk-ins, Monday-Friday, from 9 am - 5 pm.
