Two upstate New York healthcare providers are launching an effort to improve care for residents of Warren and Washington Counties.

Two hospitals in the Southern Adirondack region have begun discussions to examine possible opportunities for collaboration and cooperation. 

Recently, the Saratoga Hospital Board of Trustees and Glens Falls Hospital Board of Governors agreed to begin to formally look for ways for possible future “alignment and collaboration.”

The two healthcare providers already cooperate in certain areas, including some medical specialties and comprehensive cancer care.

Glens Falls Hospital has joined a regional partnership with a mission to cut healthcare costs through collaboration.

Glens Falls Hospital was recently welcomed as a new member of the Adirondack Health Institute.

AHI, formed in 2011, is a member organization including Community Providers, Inc., a related party to Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital in Plattsburgh, Adirondack Health, which operates Adirondack Medical Center in Saranac Lake, and Hudson Headwaters Health Network.
