When injuries or illness happens, it’s always a relief to know that medical care is close to home. With the Sparta and Newton urgent care centers, located in Sussex County, you can be assured of receiving prompt quality care when you need it.
“Urgent care centers provide a convenient as well as a lower cost setting for people who need to be seen urgently,” says Paul Marmora, vice president, Ambulatory Care at Atlantic Health System. “In the past, you either had to get an appointment with your physician or sit in an emergency room. The urgent care centers provide convenient access.”
“The urgent care centers feature on-site testing with leading-edge equipment, in addition to wellness services for our community. Our treatment tools and equipment are state-of-the-art,” says Bob Adams, president, Hackettstown and Newton medical centers.
COVID-19 testing is available for patients by appointment at Newton Urgent Care. Each center also offers virtual visits with a telehealth professional. Using the phone or videoconferencing, patients can discuss their symptoms with a medical professional and receive treatment recommendations.
A range of injuries and illnesses can be treated at an urgent care center, including accidents, cold and flu, or infections. Wellness services include vaccinations and immunizations, as well as pediatric physicals for extracurricular activities.
According to Marmora, “Atlantic Health System has a strategy of expanding urgent care centers throughout the northern areas of the state. We’re trying to bring as many of these throughout our service area for the convenience of our patients.”
