CityMD opened its 20th location in New Jersey — and first in Somerset County — on Monday in Raritan.
Jack Cappitelli, chief medical officer, New Jersey region, said expanding into the county is important.
“CityMD has served many communities throughout New Jersey for a long time,” he said. “With the latest CityMD location in Raritan, we are expanding our ability to provide exceptional urgent care to Somerset County residents — whether it’s an essential flu shot, COVID-19 testing or other common maladies.”
The office will be located at 503 Rt. 202 N. Raritan Mayor Zachary Bray, speaking at the ribbon-cutting event, said the municipality is happy to be getting a location.
“The borough of Raritan is extremely excited to have such a prestigious facility make a home for itself in our community,” he said. “Especially in this climate with a global pandemic, health care is at an all-time importance. We hope to have a long, productive and collaborative relationship with CityMD so that present and future residents benefit greatly from its services.”
CityMD, with urgent care locations throughout New Jersey and New York, offers three forms of COVID-19 testing at all locations: rapid test (nasal swab), the PCR (nasal swab) diagnostic test and the serum antibody IgG (blood test).
CityMD officials said patients of all ages visit CityMD for many reasons, including treatment for upper respiratory infections, colds and flu (including the flu vaccine), asthma, allergies, minor lacerations, sore throats, insect bites and rashes, among other conditions. On-site doctors can diagnose and treat pink eye, croup, minor orthopedic injuries and nosebleeds. Rapid testing for flu, strep throat, mononucleosis, UTIs and other conditions are also among available services.
Founded in 2010, CityMD has 20 medical centers across the New Jersey, spanning Bergen, Hudson, Union, Middlesex, Morris, Essex, Passaic, Ocean, Monmouth and now Somerset counties. The company, which merged with Summit Medical Group last summer, has more than 130 locations in the New Jersey/New York area.
