Saratoga Hospital now provides pulmonology care in Queensbury through a partnership with Hudson Headwaters Health Network.
The collaboration makes it easier for patients with lung and breathing conditions to receive much-needed specialty care, hospital officials said.
Two Saratoga Hospital pulmonologists—Dr. Hung Dinh Nguyen, director of pulmonology and sleep medicine at Saratoga Hospital, and Dr. Numan Rashid—started seeing patients at Saratoga Hospital Medical Group – Pulmonology at Queensbury earlier this spring.
In July, a third pulmonologist, Dr. Carlos Ares, will also have office hours at the Queensbury location. The practice is conveniently located on the lower level of HHHN’s West Mountain Health Services – Building 2.
“Without easy access, many patients with lung disease forgo the pulmonology care that can improve their physical and mental health and quality of life,” said Dr. Richard Falivena, vice president and chief medical and physician integration officer at Saratoga Hospital. “We know, from HHHN, that many of their patients have advanced respiratory conditions and will benefit enormously from this partnership.”
It is the second collaboration between Saratoga Hospital and HHHN. The two organizations have partnered since 2018 to bring diabetes care to the Glens Falls region.
Saratoga Hospital Medical Group – Pulmonology at Queensbury is located at 161 Carey Road, Building 2, in Queensbury.
