New Care Center in Amsterdam, NY
AMSTERDAM, N.Y., March 22, 2022 — A new partnership between Albany Med and Nathan Littauer Hospital is expanding access to health care for adults and children in the Mohawk Valley. Both providers are now seeing patients at a multispecialty center located on Golf Course Road in Amsterdam’s Route 30 retail corridor.
Albany Med introduced vascular surgery, neurosurgery, maternal fetal medicine, and pediatric specialty care to Fulton and Montgomery counties when it became the building’s first occupant in June 2021. The remaining space is now home to primary and urgent-care services provided by Nathan Littauer.
According to Nathan Littauer CEO Sean Fadale, the expansion of services from the hospital’s main Gloversville campus to Amsterdam answered a demand from patients.
“Our mission is to provide accessible healthcare for the people in our communities,” says President and CEO of Nathan Littauer Hospital & Nursing Home, Sean Fadale, FACHE. “We are excited to begin this common endeavor with Albany Med. These healthcare specialties and services are in-demand in the area, and Nathan Littauer Hospital is proud to work with Albany Med to expand healthcare services to the communities we serve.”
Nathan Littauer’s offices fill two-thirds’ of the 10,000-square-foot facility. In addition to its current offering, Albany Med is exploring the possibility of rotating additional specialties in Amsterdam.
“Robust patient volume since last spring has proven that we are filling a great need in the Mohawk Valley,” said Albany Med Health System President and CEO Dennis P. McKenna, M.D. “For many years, our patients have traveled from the Amsterdam area to Albany for specialty care, and we are proud deliver it closer to where they live. With a great partner in Nathan Littauer, we are removing barriers to care across the region and achieving our vision to enhance the health of every family.”
Nathan Littauer and Albany Med evenly split the $5.6 million cost of land acquisition and construction.
