OrthoNY Urgent Care has moved from Malta to Saratoga Springs with expanded hours.
As of April 1, the Saratoga office, located at 5 Care Lane, will offer walk-in, orthopaedic care Monday-Friday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturdays, 9 a.m. to noon.
No appointments are necessary.
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 Albany on Everett Road.
Last summer, the practice added hours to see patients in Albany, while launching urgent care in Schenectady on weekdays.
OrthoNY officials said that 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.
“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.”
OrthoNY Urgent Care is designed to be 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 on-site radiology services.
