Ocean County, NJ (PRWEB) August 18, 2014
Manahawkin Urgent Care, located in Manahawkin, NJ is the first urgent care in New Jersey to receive the Accredited Urgent Care designation under the Urgent Care Association of America, the highest level of distinction for urgent care centers. Manahawkin Urgent Care’s centers provide patients with walk-in, extended-hour medical attention with licensed providers for a large scope of medical conditions and have met all of the Urgent Care Association of America’s established standards and criteria for quality of patient care, safety, and scope of services.
Manahawkin Urgent Care also has the distinction of being the first Urgent Care Center in New Jersey to achieve Joint Commission Accreditation in its Ambulatory Care program. Achieving both of these designations shows Manahawkin Urgent Care’s continual commitment to patient quality and safety.
The health care environment is changing and it is becoming more and more important for patients to understand their treatment options.
Urgent care is a convenient and viable option for medical conditions that cannot wait for a scheduled appointment with a primary care physician. Manahawkin Urgent Care accepts unscheduled, walk-in patients during all hours of operation.
When a medical condition cannot be handled by a patient’s regular doctor – such as unexpected cuts, burns, sprains or fractures that do not require a visit to the emergency department, Manahawkin Urgent Care is there, equipped with x-ray, laboratory services and licensed providers to perform minor procedures like splinting and suturing.
Urgent care fills the gap between primary care and hospital emergency rooms, offering increased convenience and cost savings.
With its accreditation, Manahawkin Urgent Care and the Urgent Care Association of America demonstrate their commitment toward providing patients with access to quality care of the highest level.
Manahawkin Urgent Care is conveniently located at 712 E Bay Ave in Manahawkin, NJ. Manahawkin Urgent Care is open 7 days a week and accepts most insurance plans. More information can be obtained at http://www.urgentcarenowmanahawkin.com.
