In a continuing effort to increase the number of ways it can delivery care to the community, Englewood Health announced Monday that it has opened an urgent care center in Fair Lawn. englewoodhealth.org/urgent
The center, located at 22-18 Broadway, will provide adult and pediatric urgent and non-urgent medical care seven days a week.
The new facility is one of four Englewood Health urgent care centers where patients with minor injuries and illnesses can conveniently access diagnostic services and treatment with no appointment needed, as well as referrals to other Englewood Health specialists.
Englewood Health CEO Warren Geller said opening the center is another way the health system is meeting its mission.
“With the addition of our urgent care location in Fair Lawn, we strengthen our ability to provide quality care for every member of the family, at every stage of life,” he said.
“With locations across northern New Jersey, our urgent care centers round out Englewood Health’s capacity to care for our communities. We offer physician office visits, emergency medicine, hospital care, and urgent care.”
In addition to Urgent Care at Fair Lawn, Englewood Health has urgent care facilities in Cresskill, Englewood, and Jersey City. Walk-in appointments for primary care needs are also available at Englewood Health Physician Network Primary Care of Cliffside Park.
At Englewood Health Urgent Care at Fair Lawn, health care providers care for patients with non-emergent illnesses and injuries; pre-employment, school, and camp physicals; lab tests; and X-rays.
Dr. Stephen Brunnquell, president of the Englewood Health Physician Network, said it’s all about meeting the needs of residents.
“We are committed to ensuring that our patients have access to quality urgent care in their local communities,” he said.
“In addition to benefitting our patients, urgent care is an important resource for physicians, who can direct their patients to urgent care when health services are needed outside of normal practice hours.”
Brunnquell stressed that urgent care is not primary care.
“Urgent care does not replace your regular physician appointments,” he said. “It fits in, when needed, as one part of an accessible, convenient, and comprehensive network of medical care options.”
