Pediatric care.

For well and sick children, we provide services including growth and development assessment, safety, anticipatory guidance, immunizations, lead screening, anemia screening, nutrition and dental assessments. If indicated, we refer you to a pediatric specialist in your community to evaluate, advise and treat your child. These specialists include pediatric cardiologists, pediatric neurologists and ear, nose and throat specialists.

We may also refer your child for psychosocial, developmental, speech, hearing or other services provided through outside agencies. Children needing hospitalization are referred to Ellis Hospital and are cared for by the hospitalist with specialty consultants if necessary.


Adolescent care.

We provide well and sick visits to adolescents. Our services include health maintenance and assessments, immunizations, family planning counseling and behavioral risk assessments. There are specialists available in your community to assist your adolescent’s primary care provider in giving care.


Adult medical care.

We provide acute sick visits to adults, plus periodic health evaluations including cardiovascular risk, and diabetic assessments, cancer screening, substance abuse and HIV counseling, family planning and immunization updates. We emphasize preventative health services and following up on chronic medical problems.

A full spectrum of specialists is available in your community through referral by your primary provider at the Center. If you need hospitalization, you will be referred to Ellis Hospital and be cared for by HHC providers with specialty consultants if necessary.


Geriatric medical services.

Since our elderly population may have a wide range of medical and socioeconomic problems, periodic health evaluations for the geriatric population are available at the Center.  We offer preventative care, treat acute and chronic problems, and provide screenings including cardiovascular risk, and diabetic assessments, substance abuse assessments, and vision and hearing assessments. Seniors also receive counseling for medication use and abuse, as well as immunization updates.


GYN/family planning services.

HHC provides comprehensive family planning counseling, including patient education on all types of birth control measures. We can also give free information on safer sex practices and STDs, oral contraception, IUD insertion, diaphragm fitting, Depo-Provera injection and condom use. Condoms are available on site. If you request a tubal ligation, you will be referred to our on-site obstetrics consultant. This department also maintains tracking logs on STDs, abnormal pap smears and mammograms. If you have an abnormal pap smear, you will be referred for a colposcopy procedure on site by your GYN consultant. All our family providers offer primary care gynecology services, and complex cases are referred to our OB/GYN specialist.

We provide pediatric testing through a cooperative agreement with the Schenectady County Public Health Department to test at risk children for elevated blood lead levels. All children are offered vision and hearing screenings.
