BAYONNE, NJ – CarePoint Health recently responded to the needs of Bayonne residents by opening an urgent care facility on Broadway.

CarePoint executives and Bayonne city officials attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony for CarePoint Health Medical Group’s new Urgent Care Center at 654 Broadway. The center will provide treatment for medical emergencies that may not call for a visit to an emergency room, but should not wait for regular doctor visits.

City Council President Sharon Nadrowski and Councilmen Thomas Cotter, Salvatore Gullace, Gary La Pelusa and Juan Perez attended. Gullace, councilman for the Second Ward where the urgent care center is located, cut the ribbon for the new health care facility with CarePoint Health Chief Executive Officer Jeff Mandler.
