SARATOGA SPRINGS - People were filing into the new Saratoga Community Health Center Monday afternoon.
They aren't sick.
They're there to see the newest place for patients to be treated in Saratoga County.
What's unique here is that this facility doesn't require health insurance or any payment, if the patient can't afford it.
Saratoga Hospital saw a need to care for people with low or moderate incomes who were going to the emergency room when all they really needed was a doctor's visit.
"So as we've looked at the population and the numbers and we've watched how people have inappropriately used higher levels of care such as the emergency department, there is a clear need," said Angelo Calbone, president and CEO of Saratoga Hospital.
