-- Second New Jersey Location To Launch With Company's New Expanded Hours --
LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., Aug. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- PM Pediatrics, a top provider of specialized urgent care for newborns through college, announced that its newest location is set to open in North Brunswick, NJ on Monday, September 16. The 6,362 square foot practice, distinctly designed in a Medieval Times theme, is located at 2421 US Route 1 in the new Commerce Center. 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 opening of PM Pediatrics of North Brunswick comes on the heels of the company's new expanded hours across all of its urgent care sites. Beginning September 9, each PM Pediatrics practice will feature the following expanded hours: Monday through Saturday: Noon to Midnight; Sundays and Select Holidays: 10am to Midnight.
The Middlesex County site marks the seventh PM Pediatrics opening and the company's second practice in New Jersey, joining PM Pediatrics of Livingston. Additionally, PM Pediatrics has five locations in New York -- on Long Island, in Westchester and Queens. PM Pediatrics is also set to open a new urgent care practice in Brooklyn, this Fall.
Every state-of-the-art PM Pediatrics location is staffed by Pediatric Emergency Specialists, including board-certified pediatricians and pediatric emergency physicians, who provide care and treatment for a broad array of illness and injuries including asthma, fever and other infections, dehydration, sprains and fractures, wounds requiring stitches and much more. Each office has on-site digital x-ray which produces high resolution images read by a board-certified radiologist, and sent easily to a patient's primary care physician or orthopedist. Additionally, the practices feature a comprehensive laboratory on-site, which performs blood and urine tests and a variety of rapid tests for infectious diseases.
Unlike most traditional urgent care practices, PM Pediatrics specializes in treating children and young adults only. They believe strongly in a child's medical home and do not offer wellness visits, physicals, school check-ups or immunizations. PM Pediatrics takes special care to send each patient's medical record to their primary care provider the day of their visit, ensuring timely follow-up and continuity of care. Each location also has access to specialists such as plastic surgeons or orthopedists, as needed. All PM Pediatrics offices are uniquely themed and feature TVs in every exam room, creating a warm, welcoming environment for kids and adults alike. This model of care, comfort and convenience has been enthusiastically received with nearly 400,000 patient visits to date.
