Saratoga Hospital’s core commitment to patient and visitor safety expands to the modernization of its current elevators. (Add in a bit of history of building/elevators)

Bay State Elevator is in the beginning stages of modernizing current elevators with the latest technology providing security, speed and the optimal visitor experience. The newly modernized elevators have a capacity of over 2,000 pounds accommodating Class “A” Freight Loading with a speed time of 200 feet per minute. Special features include visual and audible signals for the physically handicapped, stainless steel handrails, LED recessed light fixtures and a hands free telephone.

Frank Marshall, Property and MEP Project Manager at Saratoga Hospital mentioned “We don’t even know when Bay State Elevator is here, they come in and do their work then quietly leave, they are like elevator ninjas! They are the perfect partner for Saratoga Hospital as our patient safety and comfortability is our primary concern and Bay State Elevator perfectly aligns with mission of patient satisfaction.”

About Saratoga Hospital

Saratoga Hospital owes its existence to a small group of women who were determined to meet their community’s desperate need for medical care. Through their efforts, Saratoga Emergency Hospital was incorporated in December 1891. The Hospital opened its doors less than four years later, in July 1895.

In the more than 100 years since then, both the Saratoga region and its hospital have changed dramatically.
Today, the region is known far and wide for its historic racing, unique attractions, and year-round quality of life. And the once 20-bed Saratoga Hospital is the anchor of a healthcare system that offers a complete range of services to help ensure the continued health of their patients and community.
