Walk-in bone and joint services will now be available in Saratoga
(ALBANY, NY) – Starting Saturday, April 1, OrthoNY Urgent Care moves from Malta to Saratoga Springs with expanded hours. The Saratoga office, located at 5 Care Lane, will now offer walk-in, orthopaedic care Monday-Friday, 1 p.m.-5 p.m., and Saturday mornings, 9 a.m.-Noon. No appointments are necessary. Please note – the last patient check-in is 15 minutes prior to the posted closing.
OrthoNY has been providing orthopaedic urgent care in Albany and Malta since April 2013. In June 2014, a designated urgent care suite, staffed by a full-time physician assistant, opened in the Albany location at 121 Everett Road. Last summer, the practice added hours to see patients in Albany Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-8 p.m. and on Saturdays, 8 a.m.-2 p.m., while launching urgent care in Schenectady, weekdays 1 p.m.-5 p.m. Since July 2016, close to 300 patients have been seen each week in Albany and Schenectady, with another 18-22 patients helped each Saturday between Albany and Malta.
OrthoNY Urgent Care is efficient and cost-effective, eliminating the need for emergency room visits to treat common injuries. When acute care needs are bone and joint specific, it is an optimal choice for sprains, strains, minor fractures and sports injuries. OrthoNY Urgent Care is provided by orthopaedic specialists and supported by onsite radiology services.
“Many bone and joint issues are sudden and unexpected,” said Julie Shaw, Managing Officer for OrthoNY. “Knowing this, we’ve continued to add locations and expand hours so walk-in care is more readily accessible to more patients.”
“We are happy to offer urgent care to treat injuries as quickly as possible, getting people back to work, school and life. It’s one of the ways we continue Saving Lifestyles.”
