FLEMINGTON, NJ –  Hunterdon Healthcare will open an Urgent Care Center on July 25 here. It will be located at 63 Church Street will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The location is the former site of the Reebok shoe outlet store.

“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," said Hunterdon Healthcare president and CEO Robert P. Wise.

Hunterdon Healthcare is the corporate parent of Hunterdon Medical Center.

"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," Wise added. "We are committed to providing high-quality, convenient, efficient and affordable medical treatment to our residents.”

Health experts say the best place to be treated for an acute problem is at a patient's primary care office and that urgent care is not a substitute for a primary medical physician. But when that office 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 also 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, EKGs, 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 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.

Uneducated Educators Interfere with Students’ Choice

To the editor:

I commend high school students around Hunterdon County for planning 17-minute walk-outs on March 14 in support of the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida. This is an example of young citizens thinking for themselves and taking coordinated political action – a time-honored and respected duty of any thoughtful, responsible American citizen.
