  • Have a plethora of resources to support your patients: our own transportation service, an on-site psychiatrist, home health services, rehab, and much more! A full range of services are included in our program, literally under one roof, where you ll have quick and easy access and close collaboration.
  • Approve the services your patients need you don t need to request insurance company approval for tests, procedures, and services for your patients we are both a provider and a health plan.

St. Peter s Eddy SeniorCare is the only PACE program in the greater Capital Region, operating at two locations: 1938 Curry Road in Rotterdam (serving Schenectady County since 1996) and 385 Watervliet Shaker Road in Latham (serving parts of Albany & Rensselaer Counties since 2020).
