Saratoga County, home to one of the fastest growing populations in New York, is also seeing an expansion of healthcare services.

According to the most recent U.S. Census, between the year 2000 and 2010, the Saratoga County population rose 9.5 percent, from 200,635 to 219,607, outpacing many of New York’s largest cities and population centers.

With that growth has also come an increased demand for healthcare services.

In late February, Saratoga Hospital cut the ribbon at its new Milton Health Center, located on Geyser Road in Ballston Spa.
