Atlantic Health System has a clinical affiliation with MinuteClinic, the retail health care division of CVS Caremark that provides high quality, affordable health care services.
MinuteClinic’s walk-in medical clinics, located inside select CVS pharmacy stores in Morris, Somerset, Sussex, Essex and Union counties, are staffed seven days a week by nurse practitioners specializing in family health care and are overseen by Atlantic Health System physicians.
The medical team at most MinuteClinics can diagnose, treat and write prescriptions for common illnesses, such as strep throat and ear, eye, sinus, bladder and bronchial infections; provide care for minor wounds, abrasions, skin conditions and joint sprains; and administer common vaccinations for influenza, tetanus, pneumonia, pertussis and Hepatitis A and B. Camp, sports and college physicals for adolescents are available daily on a walk-in basis. For medical emergencies, please call 911.
MinuteClinic also offers a series of wellness services designed to help patients identify lifestyle changes needed to improve their health, including screenings and monitoring for diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
Patients who need a level of care not provided at MinuteClinic will be referred to one of Atlantic Health System’s hospitals – Morristown Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center, Newton Medical Center or Goryeb Children’s Hospital.
Most health insurances are accepted, but patients should always check with their individual carriers to determine our participation with their plan.

- Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 7:30pm
- Saturday, 9:00am to 5:30pm
- Sunday, 9:00am to 4:30pm
