Building on our integrated, team approach, we’ve introduced advanced diagnosis and treatment capabilities, new minimally invasive surgical techniques and life-saving cardiac emergency protocols, to provide top quality cardiac care in a community hospital setting. And Ellis continues to bring innovative new technology and treatment options to Schenectady and the Capital Region. It’s all part of our commitment to keep our community healthy, reduce hospital stays and lower medical costs.
