SARATOGA SPRINGS — In a statement this week, Saratoga Hospital announced the acquisition of the former Carl R’s restaurant property on Main Street in Queensbury at exit 18 of the Adirondack Northway.
“Our multi-specialty group practice, Saratoga Hospital Medical Group, continues to see growth in our patient population north of the hospital’s main campus,” said Angelo Calbone, president and CEO of Saratoga Hospital. “When the property became available, we decided the convenient location at exit 18 made this an excellent site to explore how we can best provide the medical specialty programs and services to meet these expanding needs.”
With the transaction complete for the one-acre parcel, the hospital is now assessing what specialty practices will be considered for the new location. “The hospital often looks at a prospective location without having a specific plan until the transaction is finalized,” said Calbone.
No decisions will be made until a comprehensive evaluation has been completed. Saratoga Hospital is the sole property owner.
Saratoga Hospital has been actively expanding its regional locations over the past several years, now operating 21 locations throughout the greater Saratoga area.
Earlier this spring, ground was broken at the Saratoga Medical Park at exit 12 of the Northway in partnership with the Saratoga Regional YMCA.
The completed building will be home to the new Malta Y as well as medical specialty offices, including the hospital’s Malta Regional Therapy Center. It is located next to Malta Med Emergent Care, which operates in partnership with Albany Med.
Saratoga Hospital is reviewing the specialty practices that will best meet the needs of the Malta community at the new location.
Earlier this week, the hospital held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the relocation of three medical specialty offices on Route 9 in Wilton, south of Northway exit 16. The Saratoga Hospital Medical Group’s Endocrinology, Midwifery, and Women’s Primary Care practices are now seeing patients at the new Park Place site in Wilton.
