Glens Falls Hospital received a historic
award in July 2017 to create an integrated, patient-centered Medical Village on the main hospital campus. This $19.95 million in funding from the New York State Department of Health is believed to be the largest public or private grant in the hospital’s history, which will support a portion of a strategic campus expansion project.
The “Medical Village” refers to bringing a
wide range of outpatient medical services
into one location, improving accessibility
and coordination of care for patients, and communication and coordination between healthcare providers. At Glens Falls Hospital, the “Village” will be housed in a new medical pavilion offering primary care, with integrated behavioral health services; urgent care; advanced diagnostics; specialty ambulatory detoxi cation services to support individuals through the provision of treatment, prevention, and linkages with community resources; and advanced telemedicine capabilities. The hospital
also plans to relocate its Emergency Department to the new pavilion to ensure coordinated care and access to all outpatient services.
Preliminary plans call for an additional investment into new inpatient surgical suites. This aligns with long-term strategic facility plans for the hospital
to improve operational  ow and ef ciency, while signi cantly enhancing both patient and provider experience through the latest surgical technology. “Glens Falls Hospital is both thrilled and humbled to receive funding through the Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program,” said Glens Falls Hospital President and CEO, Dianne Shugrue. “It is an incredible investment in our organization and, more importantly, in our regional community.”
The new 120,000 square foot addition will be constructed adjacent to the hospital’s West Lobby, with an anticipated start of construction in 2019.
