Opening of the first medical center of the New Jersey network
Looking forward with the collaboration between Sanitas Medical Centers and Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey, the start of a Sanitas Medical Center network in New Jersey will allow the implementation of a culturally relevant health care initiative, emphasizing the connection between the individual, the family and the community. In this way, the opening of the Sanitas Medical Center located in Union City represents just a first step, being two more centers slated to be opened in Belleville and Jersey City in early 2018. Consequently, this new network of medical centers will suppose the arrival of an innovative, high-performing and culturally relevant primary care model to the mentioned state.
Independently owned and operated by Sanitas, the Union City medical center will provide family primary care services, comprehensive urgent care, laboratory and diagnostic imaging services, as well as educational programs in wellness and disease management. This will make possible to give answer to patients’ everyday health care needs in one location, with an onsite Horizon Connect retail center providing a unique member/patient experience. Consequently, this will allow families to focus on getting healthier rather than the logistics of getting care.
“We have selected a great medical team of local doctors, nurses and staff and we are thrilled to start caring for the community of Union City,” said Dr. Fernando Fonseca, Sanitas CEO in the United States. “Our approach to care is centered on our patients and their families, giving them more time with their doctor and the convenience of a one-stop medical center for their everyday health care needs. Our expansion in New Jersey will continue to build upon our success in Florida and Connecticut, as well as over 40 years of experience providing quality care to over 3 million people in South America”, he concluded.
