Seton Health's roots in the community date back to 1848, when a Troy pastor requested the assistance of the Daughters of Charity in caring for fever-stricken immigrants, many of whom were orphaned children. Completed in 1850 with community donations, Troy Hospital would become one of the first hospitals in the Capital Region. It was formally christened and renamed St. Mary's Hospital in 1949.
Today, Seton Health is a comprehensive, integrated Catholic health care system anchored by St. Mary's Hospital and providing regionally based services to residents of Rensselaer, Southern Saratoga and Northern Albany counties.
Seton Health is comprised of:
- St. Mary's Hospital in Troy, a 196 bed community hospital offering expert care in our intensive care, surgical care, oncology, hospice, orthopedic, diabetes and addiction units. The Emergency Department is staffed by board-certified emergency physicians. In 1996, St. Mary's received Stroke Center Designation from the NYS Department of Health. Our surgical services are provided on an inpatient and outpatient basis.
- Seton Health at Schuyler Ridge, a 120 bed residential health care facility in Clifton Park, which offers short term rehabilitation and a medical model Adult Day Health program.
- Fifteen physician offices including locations in Troy, Mechanicville, Stillwater, Schaghticoke, East Greenbush, Cohoes and Clifton Park. Services include family practice, internal medicine, ob/gyn, pediatrics and surgical consultation.
- A wide array of specialty services and programs including wound care, incontinence treatment, palliative care, physical rehabilitation, cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation, medical imaging, sleep lab and a center for smoking cessation.
Seton Health is also supported by our fundraising arm, the Seton Health Foundation, our Auxiliary and our loyal volunteers.
