Quick Healthcare Clinics Multiplying in New Jersey Retail Chains

In our culture, we like things to happen quickly and conveniently, right? It’s no different when it comes to our family’s health care. When we have a cough that just won’t stop, or when our aging parent has a mysterious rash, we don’t want to wait several days in order to see a primary care physician. We also don’t want to spend unnecessary hours in our hospital’s emergency room. The solution–head over to the local pharmacy or grocery store to be checked out by their in-house retail clinic. Walgreens, Shop-Rite, Acme, and CVS are featuring clinics in select stores throughout New Jersey, with more planned. These clinics accept insurance, have either a physician or a nurse-practitioner on staff, and no appointment is needed. See below for a list of typical services.

Stand-alone urgent care facilities which offer higher level emergency services such as fractures, x-rays, injuries, etc. They have a larger staff and have one or more emergency physicians available.

Both types of quick care clinics help to ease the burden on overcrowded emergency rooms and offer convenient hours on weekends and even holidays.
