Wesley Community, Saratoga Hospital Expand Level of Senior Care

MALTA – Saratoga Hospital and The Wesley Community recently announced plans to collaborate on a proposed new senior living community in Malta. The campus will vastly expand the level of care available to southern Saratoga County.

The proposed 12-acre, three-building living community for aging adults will bring various levels of senior housing to southern Saratoga County, including market-rate senior apartments, middle-to-lower income senior apartments and a senior health facility.

The campus will be situated at the north end of the Malta Med Emergent Care facility complex located off Exit 12 of the Northway. The Wesley Community will operate the housing and care facilities and will lease the land from Saratoga Hospital.

“Our commitment to helping seniors age in place has driven this collaboration with Saratoga Hospital,” said Brian Nealon, Chief Executive Officer of The Wesley Community. “The Wesley Community’s hands-on, expert staff has a long history of providing seniors with a wide variety of choices for their long-term care and housing. Aligning our services with Saratoga Hospital will enable us to create a second campus offering a breadth of high-quality services for Capital Region seniors and their families.”

Officials from Saratoga Hospital and The Wesley Community unveiled details of the plan at the Malta Town Board meeting in late November in an effort to seek a variance on building height. The proposed 60-foot buildings would be no taller than the current Malta Med Emergent Care building.

“Both Saratoga Hospital and The Wesley Community have strong reputations for providing exceptional care to all types of patients and this partnership will continue that tradition,” said Angelo Carbone, President and Chief Executive Officer of Saratoga Hospital. “This alliance will provide additional options for an aging population in a fast-growing section of our community while diversifying the care available in southern Saratoga County.”

The proposed senior care campus will feature three buildings designed to provide various levels of care to area seniors. The first building will feature approximately 98 market-rate senior apartments ranging in size from 700 to 1,300 square feet. Additional plans for the building include common areas on each floor, a dining area, media center and a lap pool for senior health and wellness.

The second building will contain approximately 75 apartment units for middle-to-lower income seniors and feature similar amenities to the market-rate senior apartment building.

The third entity will house a senior health facility designed for seniors who require additional care or cannot live independently. All facilities will offer a variety of services designed to enhance the lives of seniors, including socialization programs and activities, off-campus outings, and transportation to medical appointments and grocery stores.

Saratoga Hospital presently operates a primary care clinic at The Wesley Community while Wesley provides administrative management of the skilled nursing home facility for Saratoga Hospital. Additionally, approximately 70 percent of nursing home admissions at The Wesley Community are referred by the staff at Saratoga Hospital.
