The Visiting Nurse Association of Central Jersey Community Health Center and Denholtz Properties are announcing the opening of a new, state-of-the-art community health center in the heart of downtown Red Bank.
The 4,800-square-foot space at 64-66 Bridge Ave. is in a two-story retail building situated just blocks from downtown Red Bank owned by Denholtz, a leading real estate development and investment company. Upon opening Dec. 27, the new location is closer to Red Bank’s downtown area and train station than its former 2,500-square-foot, second-floor office at 188 E. Bergen Place. It will also afford its clients increased access to high-quality and affordable services, including dental care, as well as expanded primary care services, chiropractic, behavioral and mental health care services.
The location’s downtown proximity will also enable the VNACJ to work more closely with partner organizations such as JBJ Soul Kitchen, Lunch Break, the Red Bank Family YMCA and St. Anthony’s Church.
“We are excited for the new opportunities that this larger, more accessible space will present for the Community Health Center,” Christopher Rinn, CEO of the VNA of Central Jersey Community Health Center, said. “Accessibility is a central part of our mission and values, which is why it is so important for us to ensure that our location or office size is never a deterrent to care. As we begin to transition into this new space, we look forward to more opportunities to provide our comprehensive, high-quality and affordable services, while continuing to serve as a pillar of health care for all Red Bank residents.”
“Since our move to Red Bank in 2019, Denholtz Properties has been driven by a desire to make a powerful impact in the community that we call home,” Steven Denholtz, CEO of Denholtz Properties, said. “We are excited to welcome the Visiting Nurse Association of Central Jersey Community Health Center to our Bridge Avenue property to help them to continue to bring important community-focused health care to the Red Bank community for years to come.”
“The VNACJ Community Health Center in Red Bank provides a wide range of necessary, affordable and quality health services to sick and suffering patients in our community,” U.S. Rep. Chris Smith (R-4th Dist.), who championed and secured $400,000 in federal support to help complete the project, said. “These new federal dollars will help expand outreach and capacity so that more residents in our area can be served and can have greater access to much-needed health care and treatments.”
Patients with previously scheduled appointments at VNACJ’s former location will be contacted with more information.
The VNACJ offers comprehensive primary care and wellness services for all ages at four locations throughout Monmouth County, in Asbury Park, Freehold, Keyport and Red Bank.
