Renovations At Saratoga Hospital Underway - Hospital Responds To Increased Demands for Surgical Care

By Colette Linton | Business
SARATOGA SPRINGS – In response to the growth of Saratoga County, increased demand for surgical and intensive care services, and increases in the number of inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures, renovations at Saratoga Hospital are now underway to transform the intensive care unit as well as tear down an existing building for new and larger operating rooms. Saratoga Hospital will have ten state-of-the-art operating rooms to provide room for additional surgical technology; 13 new pre-operative care spaces and 16 post-operative care spaces; and 19 private intensive care units. The hospital’s President and CEO, Angelo Calbone, and Manager of Marketing and Communications Ellen Kerness, wrote in an email to Saratoga TODAY that the demand for surgical and intensive care services was stretching the limits of the hospital’s operating services and recovery units. The number of surgical procedures of both inpatient and outpatient services, they wrote, had increased by more than 75 percent since 2000, and the medical staff, number of surgeons, increased by 63 percent. The planned renovations will provide larger rooms for new and previously available technology at the hospital. Calbone and Kerness also wrote that by having a smarter, more efficient technology, the hospital will be able to facilitate greater efficiency in managing surgical procedures, reduce the time patients spend in transport, shorten procedure times and support higher surgical volumes.
