CLIFTON PARK — CDPHP announced on Monday that it plans to open a multi-specialty medical center on Route 9 in town by early next year.
The project has already received town approval and has secured a building permit, so it can begin construction, according to town officials.
According to a press release from the company, the center will include a variety of local, independent physician practices, including Albany ENT and Allergy Services, Albany Gastroenterology Consultants, Capital Cardiology Associates, Capital District Renal Physicians, and OrthoNY.
While they will all be housed in the same building, each practice will retain its independence.
“Few things are more important than your health,” said CDPHP president and chief executive officer John D. Bennett. “That is why CDPHP is teaming up with the best and brightest to provide patients with a world-class health care experience. This medical facility will be patient-centric, practice efficient, and cutting-edge from a technology perspective.”
Technical design for the offices will occur over the next eight weeks, according to CDPHP.
Plans for the building were presented to the Clifton Park Planning Board in April.
The CDPHP project, which has already been approved by the town Planning Board, was explained in April by Albany-based developer Paulsen Development. It would be built on a parcel that measures just over four acres. At maximum height, the structure will be 30 feet tall and will measure a total of 40,000 square feet.
Parking spots for 220 cars will be created, according to plans. About 3.25 acres of the site will be disturbed for the project.
The medical center will hook up to municipal water and sewer. Forty-five percent of the total acreage will be dedicated to green space. Designers said in April that there will not be overnight accommodations for patients included in the design.
When the CDPHP building is complete, it will be one more option for Clifton Park resident who live in a town that, over the last few years, has developed a booming and diverse healthcare provider industry.
Ellis Medicine opened a medical center on Sitterly Road in town, and the Planning Board recently approved an expansion for that facility that will practically double the size of the building.
There is a St. Peter’s medical center on Tallow Wood Drive, in the middle of the busy town center, and Community Care Family Medicine exists on Route 9, directly next to where the new CDPHP building is proposed.
The office will be open to CDPHP members and non-members. A formal groundbreaking ceremony is expected to take place in spring 2020.
