St. Luke’s Opens 16th Walk-In Center in Phillipsburg
St. Luke’s Care Now will open its 16th location this month, offering residents of Phillipsburg, New Jersey, and the surrounding communities easy access to affordable, quality walk-in medical care.
The new St. Luke’s Care Now is scheduled to open on November 26 at 200 Stryker Road, Suite 2 in Phillipsburg. Hours will be 8 am to 8 pm Monday through Friday, and 8 am to 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday.
“St. Luke’s Care Now – Phillipsburg will provide improved access to quality medical care quickly and at a cost that is generally less than that of an emergency room visit,” explains Joe Cunningham, St. Luke’s Senior Network Director of Urgent Care and Occupational Medicine Services.
In addition to walk-in medical care, St. Luke’s Care Now – Phillipsburg offers walk-in X-ray services and occupational medicine services to employers.
St. Luke’s Care Now facilities are not intended to replace an individual’s primary care physician or manage chronic health concerns.
“St. Luke’s Care Now centers are an extension of the local primary care offices,” says Robert Dolansky, DO, St. Luke’s Care Now medical director.
“We can take care of urgent medical needs – such as coughs, colds, bumps and bruises – when the patient’s primary care physician is not available. We will then get the patient back to his or her primary care physician for routine care, or help the patient establish care with a primary care physician.”
In addition to the new Phillipsburg location, St. Luke’s Care Now centers are located in Allentown, Bethlehem, Brodheadsville, Center Valley, Emmaus, Hamburg, Jim Thorpe, Lehighton, New Ringgold, Pennsburg, Quakertown, Whitehall and Wind Gap, Pennsylvania; and Belvidere and Clinton, New Jersey.
