Urgent Care



The doctors of Albany Medical Center’s Emergency Department care for some of the most critically injured and ill patients in the Capital District on a daily basis. They also treat minor emergencies such as lacerations, insect bites, sprains, strains, fractures and sore throats. Starting on July 25, 2011, these physicians will be available to treat more routine urgent care needs.

Through a partnership with Saratoga Hospital, our emergency physicians will provide urgent care services to patients at Malta Medical Arts. Individuals who need immediate care can have the peace of mind knowing that they are being treated by highly experienced emergency medicine physicians who specialize in diagnosing and treating a wide range of conditions.

Common types of conditions treated at Malta Medical Arts include:

  • Sprains, strains, and simple fractures
  • Muscle aches and pains
  • Cuts, scrapes, and minor wounds
  • Minor pediatric illnesses
  • Stomach pain, vomiting, or diarrhea
  • Earaches
  • Fever
  • Sore throats, colds, coughs, and wheezing
  • Minor eye injuries, infections, or irritation
  • Rashes and burns
  • Insect bites
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Routine gynecological problems

Laboratory and medical imaging (x-ray) services, as well as MRI, CT and ultrasound services, are available on-site. The facility is open 7 days a week and is conveniently located south of Exit 12 of the Northway, on Route 9 and Knabner Road in the new Saratoga Sports Medicine Center. No appointment is needed because care is provided on a walk-in basis.

We do not provide emergency care at this site. If you have an emergency medical condition, go to the nearest hospital emergency department or call 911 immediately.
