AT MANAHAWKIN HEALTH PARK
AtlantiCare, a member of Geisinger, continues to expand the services it provides at its Health Park in Manahawkin. AtlantiCare Physician Group Ear, Nose and Throat specialty care began seeing patients in the park in August 2018. In addition to preventive, treatment and follow-up care, this practice provides audiology services including hearing testing and fitting for hearing aids.
The Park, just off Route 72, includes a 60,000-square-foot main building that offers primary, pediatric, and specialty care services. Specialty care services include cardiac diagnostic testing, cardiology, dermatology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, nephrology, neurology, OB/GYN, and rheumatology. Surgical specialty providers who see patients include bariatric, breast, colorectal, vascular, and general surgery. The site also features Atlantic Medical Imaging at AtlantiCare and Rothman Institute at AtlantiCare.
The AtlantiCare Pharmacy Team makes a personal connection with patients. “Parents appreciate that children who need liquid medications can pick their own flavor,” says Vicki Leaman, Pharm.D., AtlantiCare pharmacist and mother of three young children. “I know how hard it can be to get kids to take medicine. We want to be sure children take their full prescription so they have a better health outcome. Watermelon is the top flavor for masking medicine bitterness.”
As part of AtlantiCare’s initiative to reduce access to opioids, the pharmacy offers a community medication disposal unit. The Pharmacy has collected more than 176 pounds of pharmaceutical waste through the box in the last year.
The Pharmacy and AtlantiCare’s Clinical Laboratory in the building make it easy for patients to see their care provider, get lab work done and pick up prescriptions in one visit.
The café recently expanded its hours. Patients and visitors can use indoor tables as well as a beautiful outdoor courtyard garden to enjoy breakfast, lunch, or an afternoon snack.
Free Wi-Fi and comfortable seating throughout the building add to patient and visitor comfort.
AtlantiCare hosts Senior University and other free community health and wellness educational events in a spacious, bright community center room.
For added patient convenience, the main building opens at 7 a.m. Monday through Friday and is open until 6 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays; and 7 p.m. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. AtlantiCare Clinical Laboratory is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Individual practice hours vary.
AtlantiCare Urgent Care, located in a separate building in the Park, is open from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, 365 days a year for treatment of minor injuries and illnesses.
