Several Coordinated Health facilities join Atlantic Health’s network of care
Phillipsburg, NJ – July 28, 2022 – Today Atlantic Health System is pleased to announce it took a step forward in improving patient access to high quality care by acquiring several Coordinated Health facilities in Phillipsburg, NJ. The purchase includes an ambulatory facility offering patients numerous services including primary care, walk-in services, physical therapy and rehabilitation, orthopedics/sports medicine, laboratory services, gynecology/women’s health, and imaging and radiology. Atlantic Health also acquired a nearby ophthalmology practice where patients can receive ophthalmology and optometry and optical services. Clinical leadership at all locations, including physicians, nurses and other caregivers, will remain in place to ensure continuity of care.
Well positioned near the New Jersey-Pennsylvania border, the facilities were part of the Lehigh Valley Health Network. Now, as part of Atlantic Health System, they will offer patients in both states convenient access to Atlantic Health’s award-winning specialty care services close to home. The facilities also seamlessly share information with Epic, Atlantic Health’s electronic medical record platform, allowing a patient’s medical information to travel with them throughout Atlantic Health’s entire network of care, including more advanced services at its award-winning medical centers.
“Delivering more accessible, convenient care advances our mission to build healthier communities," said Brian Gragnolati, President and CEO, Atlantic Health System. “The talented caregivers now practicing at Coordinated Health perform essential services that support the well-being of local residents. We are proud to play our part in supporting this community on its journey to greater health and wellness."
