“Situations calling for urgent medical attention cannot always wait for when your physician’s office is open, but often do not always warrant a trip to the Emergency Department. Hunterdon Healthcare Urgent Care is the perfect alternative and the Center is staffed by the same board-certified Emergency Specialists who are caring for patients in our Emergency Department. We are committed to providing high-quality, convenient, efficient and affordable medical treatment to our residents,” stated Robert P. Wise, President and CEO, Hunterdon Healthcare.
The best place to be treated for your acute problem is at your primary care office and urgent care is not a substitute for your medical home. But when your Medical Home is not available, Hunterdon Healthcare Urgent Care services include treatment for allergies and colds, cough/sore throats, acute illness, flu, pneumonia, bronchitis, urinary infections, injuries, conjunctivitis, cuts/minor burns, sprains/fractures, pains, animal bites/insect stings and more. Sports and camp physicals can be done at the Urgent Care Center
“For our patients who currently see a Hunterdon Healthcare practice, the Urgent Care will be able to view that patient’s medical record from their primary care office or specialist so the care will be coordinated and seamless,” explained Christine Bogard, Executive Director, Hunterdon Medical Practices, Hunterdon Medical Management.
Hunterdon Healthcare Urgent Care will offer onsite x-ray, EKG’s, blood work/lab testing, immunizations, audiometric testing, spirometry and vision screening. The Urgent Care Center will also provide occupational health medical services to employers throughout the area and offer Department of Transportation Physicals, Pre-Employment Physicals, HAZMAT Physicals, OSHA Respirator Physicals, Initial Work Injury, Fitness for Duty and Return to Duty Physicals, Drug and Alcohol Testing and Medical Review Officer services.
The Hunterdon Healthcare Urgent Care Center will offer walk in appointments. For added convenience, patients will be able to see wait times online and add their name in queue, so when they arrive they are able to walk through the doors and be seen more quickly. The Urgent Care Center will participate in most insurance plans.
