MULLICA HILL, NJ (March 18) – South Jersey Healthcare recently broke ground on the construction of a new medical center in Mullica Hill at the corner of Tomlin Station Road and Route 322. When SJH Tomlin Station Park opens this summer, the 16,000 square foot facility will include an urgent care center, primary care and orthopedic physician offices, physical therapy services, and a state-of-the-art medical imaging center.

“SJH Tomlin Station Park will offer a unique and comforting healthcare environment that provides more than a typical doctor's office,” said Jim Boote, SJH VP of Ambulatory Services. “By co-locating experienced physicians with our quality outpatient services in one convenient location, the healthcare park will make it easy and convenient to arrange for multiple appointments at one time, saving you valuable time for life's important things, like your family.”

SJH Tomlin Station Park will house the community’s first Urgent Care Center with experienced staff that can treat patients with injuries or illnesses requiring immediate care, but are not serious enough for a visit to an emergency room. Common conditions treated at urgent care centers include coughs, colds, flu, muscle aches, sprains, strains or broken bones.

“When life gets busy, it’s comforting to have easy access to quality care that doesn't take a lot of time away from work or your family,” said Boote. “If your family doctor is not available or your minor injury or illness does not require the life-saving services of our Emergency Department at SJH Elmer Hospital, you can simply walk right in to our Urgent Care Center. No appointment is necessary.”

The center will also provide a comprehensive array of orthopedic services. Experienced orthopedic surgeons from Premier Orthopedic Associates will see patients at their practice in SJH Tomlin Station Park. The center will also offer physical therapy services provided by SJH RehabCare and a leading edge medical imaging center.

The comprehensive imaging center at SJH Tomlin Station Park will feature state-of-the-art digital technology including MRI and CT scanning in a convenient community location. Expert technologists will use a Picture Archiving Computerized System that produces digital images, allowing doctors to view electronic radiology studies instantly on computers in their offices. The center will also focus on women’s care with a special women’s imaging section offering a comfortable setting for diagnostic testing.

Studies at SJH Tomlin Station Park will be read by South Jersey Healthcare’s experienced team of highly-qualified radiologists. Regional Diagnostic Imaging is one of the region’s most experienced groups and includes board certified radiologists who are fellowship trained in a number of specialties including neuro-radiology, musculoskeletal imaging, interventional radiology, nuclear medicine and cross sectional body imaging.

“South Jersey Healthcare worked diligently with the Planning Board and its professionals on the unique architecture of this state-of-the-art health care facility,” said Louis Manzo, Mayor of Harrison Township. “This is truly a magnificent gateway to Harrison Township.  They are a great addition to our business community and I hope all of our residents will join in welcoming South Jersey Healthcare to our Township.”

South Jersey Healthcare provides award winning care in three counties that’s close and convenient to your home. SJH Elmer Hospital, a full service community hospital know for quality and personalized care, is just minutes from Mullica Hill on Front Street in Elmer. The nonprofit, integrated health care system provides access to a continuum of health services including hospital services, numerous community health clinics, home health services, and specialty services, which serve the medical and health care needs of Southern New Jersey residents.
