FOR URGENT CARE (need care but not emergency care) consider URGENT CARE AT WILTON MEDICAL ARTS
In case of illness or injury which requires evaluation or treatment during the hours when Health Services is closed, Urgent Care at Wilton Medial Arts (518-580-2273) is available seven days a week at 3040 Rt. 50 Saratoga Springs, ½ mile North of Exit 15, across from Home Depot. No appointment is necessary and treatment is generally quicker and less costly than traditional emergency room care. Laboratory and medical imaging (X-ray) services are available on-site.

The SARATOGA HOSPITAL EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT is for emergent and urgent problems that cannot wait until Health Services reopens. Many insurance policies will not pay for emergency department visits for non-emergent problems. 

If you go to Saratoga Hospital or Urgent Care at Wilton Medical Arts identify yourself as a Skidmore student, your medical evaluation may be shared with Health Services. This promotes continuity of care and may be best for your medical condition. Please take advantage of this opportunity and allow us to best help you.
