The high-quality, easily accessible health care service known as Vernon Urgent Care has relocated in a new home where it will be able to treat more members of the community than ever before, under a new name - Vernon Health & Wellness/Urgent Care.
Opening on Wednesday, June 26, Vernon Health & Wellness/Urgent Care is a brand new, free-standing facility with its own convenient parking, located at 123 Route 94. The center is the new home to several departments including Vernon Diagnostics and Women’s Health Care Associates of Sussex County.
Along with the new location, Vernon Diagnostics has enhanced its services to include basic radiology and EKGs. No appointment is needed. A valid prescription from a physician is required. The lab is open from 7 am to 8 pm Monday through Friday, and radiology services are available from 8 am to 8 pm Monday through Friday. Both lab and radiology are open 9 am to 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday.
Vernon Health & Wellness/Urgent Care is seamlessly connected to Newton Medical Center, ranked by Castle Connolly as the #1 mid-sized hospital in New Jersey, and to all of the Atlantic Health System hospitals.
Vernon Health & Wellness/Urgent Care is now covered under most plans’ outpatient deductible rates, rather than as a doctor’s visit co-pay. This change in billing practices allows the facility to participate in additional insurance plans, making our services available to more residents in the Sussex County area. Bills will be submitted to patients’ insurance as an outpatient department of Newton Medical Center, not an office visit. As with any medical provider, patients are still responsible for any referrals, authorizations or financial obligations required by their insurance plan, including any facility co-payments, co-insurances or deductibles.
“You can expect the same high-quality care. By participating in more insurance programs, we are able to make our services available to more residents in the Sussex County area,” said Gerry Dziak, manager of Vernon Health & Wellness/Urgent Care.
With state-of-the art equipment and a team of board-certified physicians, Vernon Health & Wellness/Urgent Care will continue to provide convenient, expert medical care to families and businesses alike. We provide care for illnesses and injuries, including sprains, cuts, fractures, colds, respiratory infections, and other urgent and non-urgent medical problems. We also provide physicals and exams for workers’ compensation.
Vernon Health & Wellness/Urgent Care’s hours will be Monday to Friday 8:00am to 8:00pm and Saturday and Sunday 9:00am to 5:00pm. To learn if your insurance is part of the expanded number of accepted insurance plans or for any questions, please call 973-209-2260.
