Why HealthMed?

Your local HealthMed Walk-in Clinic provides urgent care and other medical services—no appointment necessary

A HealthMed Urgent Care center can deliver faster, less expensive care than an emergency room.

A HealthMed walk-in clinic is the next best option for quality urgent care and many routine medical services when your regular doctor is closed or can’t schedule you in promptly.

Healthcare needs don’t always arise at predictable or convenient times. That’s why every HealthMed Urgent Care walk-in clinic in NJ has extended hours weekdays – 8 am to 8 pm – and is open weekends – 8 am to 2 pm Saturday and Sunday – and most holidays. No appointment is needed. Depending on when you walk in to a clinic, you may not have any wait. And most urgent care patients are seen within 30 minutes. HealthMed Urgent Care accepts most medical insurance plans.

We see patients 2 years and up (pediatric care through late adulthood). Immediate care clinics are staffed by board-certified family medicine physicians whose training qualifies them to provide appropriate care to individuals of all ages, and skilled nurse practitioners and physician assistants. Capabilities include an on-site lab and digital x-ray.

Urgent Care

As an urgent care provider, we are a less expensive, more convenient, and usually faster alternative to a hospital-based emergency room for diagnosis and treatment of an illness or injury that doesn’t require ER-level, life-saving care but is serious enough to be seen promptly—such as an ankle sprain or bone fracture, skin rash, strep throat or urinary tract infection.

Walk-in Clinic Advantages: Less Expensive, Less Wait Time

Urgent care at a walk-in clinic is considerably less expensive than receiving care in a hospital emergency room. And the wait for urgent care at a walk-in clinic, where patients are seen in the order they arrive, is typically much shorter than the wait in an emergency room, where life- and limb-threatening emergencies are given the highest priority regardless of the order in which patients arrive.

Occupational Health Care & Workers Compensation

HealthMed offers occupational health services to support local businesses in maintaining a healthy, safe workforce while controlling the overall cost of care for the company and its employees. These services include workers comp-related medical evaluation and treatment, drug and alcohol screening, DOT physicals and other employment-related exams, and vaccinations/immunizations.

Other Convenient Care

Other walk-in health services for the communities we serve include preventive vaccinations/immunizations (e.g., flu shots) and physical examinations for sports, going to camp, or applying for or renewing a commercial driver’s license (CDL).

Urgent Care or Hospital Emergency Room Care?

Urgent care is not a substitute for hospital-based emergency care. Hospital emergency rooms are staffed and equipped to treat severe illnesses and injuries that can permanently impair or threaten the life of an individual. Conditions that require emergency room care include:

  • Heart attack (chest pain lasting longer than 2 minutes)
  • Stroke (symptoms such as sudden numbness, blurry or loss of vision, slurred speech, confusion)
  • Serious head, neck or spine injury
  • Convulsions, seizures or loss of consciousness
  • Choking, suffocating, serious difficulty breathing
  • Heavy, uncontrollable bleeding
  • Severe burns
  • Any bone fracture in which bone protrudes through the skin
  • Poisoning
  • Vaginal bleeding during pregnancy
  • Overdose of drugs or alcohol
  • Coughing up or throwing up blood
  • Severe allergic reactions, especially in children
  • Severe and persistent vomiting or diarrhea

Urgent care is for conditions that don’t require emergency room care but still need to be seen promptly by a skilled healthcare provider. Examples include:

  • Minor broken bones and fractures (i.e. fingers, toes)
  • Sprains and strains
  • Moderate back problems
  • Mild to moderate asthma
  • Lacerations/cuts where bleeding can be brought under control but stitches may be needed to close up the wound
  • Ear infections
  • Sinus infections
  • Eye irritation and redness
  • Severe sore throat or cough
  • Skin rashes and infections
  • Urinary tract infections
