CarePoint Health representatives and local officials joined for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the opening of the system’s newest Neighborhood Health Center on April 6.
At the event, Union City Mayor Brian P. Stack addressed the crowd at the West Street facility and took part in the ribbon cutting.
CarePoint already offers Neighborhood Health Centers through its three Hudson County hospitals; Bayonne Medical Center, Christ Hospital in Jersey City and Hoboken University Medical Center.
“We are pleased to join with Mayor Stack to cut the ribbon on this new Neighborhood Health Center in Union City,” said CarePoint Health Chief Operating Officer Peter Daniels. “CarePoint has a mission of bringing quality health services to the community, and this new neighborhood health center does just that. The doctors, nurses and staff at the new Neighborhood Health Center are here to help treat patients for the full range of primary-care needs.”
The center is a full-service family medicine facility treating patients of all ages for a wide-range of healthcare needs, including well care, preventive medicine, gynecologic exams and osteopathic treatment.
The center, open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., has the capacity to see up to 35 patients per day and the entire office staff is bilingual, speaking many languages including Spanish, French and Ukrainian.
"It is imperative that the community has access to healthcare, especially preventative care," Stack said. "I welcome the opening of CarePoint's neighborhood clinic as a new facility, centrally located in Union City, that will increase much-needed access to healthcare services for residents of our community."
