A new EmUrgentCare center and medical office in Clifton Park opened its doors last Tuesday.
The 14,400-square-foot medical office complex is located at 989 state Route 146, just west of the main entrance to the Shenendehowa Central School District campus.
The complex houses an Albany Medical Center Hospital EmUrgentCare and a newly renovated and expanded satellite office for orthopedic specialists with The Bone & Joint Center in addition to other medical tenants.
It is the 12th Albany Med EmUrgentCare facility in the Capital Region and the first in Clifton Park.
"The opening of this facility is another step in Albany Med’s commitment to bring our high-quality, expert care closer to home,” said Dennis P. McKenna, Albany Med executive vice president, president of the faculty practice, and senior associate dean for clinical affairs. “Our walk-in clinic is staffed by Albany Med’s emergency medicine-trained providers and offers easy access to other specialists. We’re proud to serve the health care needs of the Clifton Park community.”
The $4.5 million project was presented to the Clifton Park Planning Board by Columbia Development Companies, and went through a lengthy approval process requiring a number of variances from the board. Columbia Development Companies owns the land and will manage the property.
Fellowship-trained doctors and surgeons with The Bone & Joint Center will provide treatment at the Clifton Park facility for orthopedic injuries and conditions affecting the ankle, back, elbow, foot, hand, hip, knee, neck, shoulder, spine and wrist in addition to specializing in general orthopedics, orthopedic oncology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, sports medicine, total joint replacement and revision and trauma.
The site, built in 1993, previously served as the home for several small practices including Capital Care Physicians, and a smaller Bone & Joint satellite office.
Work on the project started in April. The complex is divided into three separate buildings — each measuring 4,800 square feet.
The urgent care facility will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, including holidays, for those seeking treatment from flu, colds, sprains, fractures, infections and other non-emergency room illnesses. The Bone and Joint Center will provide treatment for orthopedic injuries out of its new office. There will be an MRI machine on site, and 14 full-time employees.
