The Shore Memorial Quick Care Center in Egg Harbor Township is now open to treat common illnesses and injuries such as coughs, earaches, rashes and sore throats. The newest Quick Care Center provides convenient medical care for minor illnesses or injuries that aren’t full blown emergencies, but are serious enough to require medical attention.
“We understand that people may be hesitant to call the doctor or visit the Quick Care Center because they believe their injury isn’t serious enough to receive professional medical attention,” says Ann Grosso, RN, nurse practitioner at the Egg Harbor Township Quick Care Center. “However, an injury could be more serious than originally thought. We always stress to our patients that when in doubt, it’s better to be on the safe side and seek treatment.”
Located in Harbor Village Square on the corner of Ocean Heights Avenue and Zion Road, the Egg Harbor Township Quick Care Center is open Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. This new facility also provides laboratory studies, X-ray and EKG exams. Starting in the near future, the Egg Harbor Township Quick Care Center will begin treating pediatric patients for minor illnesses and injuries. For more information about services provided, call (609) 927-8069.
Additionally, Shore Memorial Hospital in Somers Point has a Quick Care Center located adjacent to the hospital’s emergency department. Here patients can also have peace of mind knowing that the full resources of the hospital are behind them, should their injury turn out to be more serious.
