Albany - A health care provider in Albany turns 25.

Albany Area Primary Health Care workers saw their first patient in 1979 in Leesburg. They have centers in five counties.

Pat Hunter was one of the first nurses hired more than two decades ago. She says, "I didn't have any idea that I would be here this long when I first moved to town I thought we would only be here a couple of years. Then as the years go on and you get to know the patients, they trust you and your judgment along with the physicians. I wouldn't do anything else."

Nurses and doctors have seen 1.8 million patients during their 25 years of operation.
