PM Pediatrics Expands New Jersey Footprint with New After-Hours Urgent-Care Site in North Brunswick
Company's Second New Jersey Practice Scheduled to Open This Fall
PM Pediatrics, an award-winning provider of after-hours pediatric urgent care, is set to open its second New Jersey location in Middlesex County, in the township of North Brunswick this Fall. The 6,362-square-foot site is located at 2421 US Route 1. Dr. Michael Bachman, currently the Medical Director at the company’s Livingston, NJ office, and New Jersey Regional Medical Director for PM Pediatrics, will also serve as Medical Director in North Brunswick, overseeing all medical operations for the practice.
The North Brunswick location joins Livingston, NJ and five additional practices throughout New York—on Long Island, in Westchester and Queens. The first PM Pediatrics site in Brooklyn is also slated to open this Fall. North Brunswick will provide walk-in after-hours urgent care for patients from newborn through college age, from 4:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. on weekdays and from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. on weekends and holidays.
“PM Pediatrics is thrilled to break ground in North Brunswick, and deliver our trusted and specialized urgent care services to the children and young adults in the area,” said Dr. Jeffrey Schor, founder of PM Pediatrics. “This latest expansion in New Jersey also brings us closer to one of our overall Company goals of opening four to five practices in 2013.”
“Every family should have access to top-quality healthcare when they need it,” said Dr. Michael Bachman, Regional Medical Director for PM Pediatrics. “We look forward to working closely with local primary care physicians to ensure continuity of care for their patients and provide them with excellent service while preventing unnecessary visits to the ER.”
Every PM Pediatrics practice is staffed by Pediatric Emergency Specialists who provide specialized care and treatment for a broad array of illnesses and injuries including asthma, fever and other infections, dehydration, sprains and fractures, wounds requiring stitches and much more. This model of care, comfort and convenience has been enthusiastically received by patients who have visited a PM Pediatrics location over 350,000 times since the first site opened in Syosset. Each office has on-site digital x-ray producing high-resolution images that are easily sent to a patient’s primary care physician either electronically or via CD-ROM. Each location also features a comprehensive laboratory capable of performing rapid blood, urine and chemistry workups. PM Pediatrics takes special care to send each patient’s medical records to their primary care provider the day of their visit, ensuring timely follow-up and continuity of care. Each practice also has access to specialists such as plastic surgeons or orthopedists, as needed.
The distinctly designed practices, which showcase jungle, seaside, Medieval Times, and Main Street USA themes and have TVs in every room, create a warm and welcoming environment for patients and their families. All PM Pediatrics offices are conveniently located and uniquely themed, providing caregivers and children with a healthcare experience that is unlike any other.
