Inspira Health has cut the ribbon celebrating its newest health center, Inspira Health Center Sicklerville. The new 19,000 square ft. facility collocates six services including Primary Care, Rehab Services, Imaging, Lab, Sleep and Balance. Primary Care and Rehab Services are currently open and serving patients. Other services will open to patients once the license is received from the NJ Department of Health.
“The goal of placing all of these services together in one health center is to improve access and streamline care for the residents of Sicklerville and surrounding communities,” said John DiAngelo, president and CEO of Inspira Health.
The crown jewel of the facility is an immersive experience called Ambient MRI located in the Imaging Center. The Phillips Ambient experience system immerses the patient in the visual and audio environment of their choice: beach, snow or under the sea. This is ideal for anyone, young or old, who might become anxious during an MRI study as it promotes active relaxation and positive distraction. The MRI system produces unrivaled images, in less time than standard MRI machines. The Imaging Center also offers CT, Ultrasound, X-Ray, 3D mammography and DEXA. Hours of operation are Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with weekend hours pending.
The Primary Care suite has 12 exam rooms and is currently open Monday through Friday with late hours available on Monday and Tuesday. Attending Primary Care physicians are Dr. Maynard Holgado, Dr. Ravi Desai and Dr. Tara Bullock. Endocrinologist Jenine Vecchio is also taking appointments.
The sleep lab offers state-of-the-art rooms with personal bathrooms for comfortable sleep studies. The sleep center is managed by board-certified sleep specialists. The balance center is located in the same suite and offers specialized balance equipment to diagnose the cause of balance issues within the vestibular system. This service is available by appointment.
Rehab Care offers physical and occupational therapy and outpatient rehabilitation including various therapeutic programs for sports rehabilitation, joint replacement, concussion management, vestibular disorders, balance dysfunction, lymphedema, post-operative care, soft tissue injuries and tendinopathy, back and neck pain, healthy lifestyle management and more. Their therapist is ASTYM certified and is a certified workers compensation specialist. They are currently open to patients Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Laboratory services will be available Monday through Friday 7:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. beginning August 3.
