BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ – eMedical Urgent Care, announced that their office located at 369 Springfield Avenue in Berkeley Heights will undergo a renovation project. They have been a trusted provider of immediate medical services in Union County for more than 25 years.

The office will be fully staffed to treat patients throughout the renovation project, which is expected to be completed by the end of October.

When renovations are completed, the urgent care center will feature:

  • A new registration area that maximizes patient privacy
  • New equipment in the exam rooms
  • 5 spacious exam rooms, including exam rooms designed specifically for children, seniors and patients with autism
  • A state-of-the-art digital X-ray system, which will enable patients to receive copies of their X-rays on disk
  • A spacious, new waiting area that triples the size of the current waiting room. The waiting room will include a play area for children.
  • A workers’ compensation suite, which will centralize all of the services and equipment needed to provide occupational health services. This area will be separated from “sick” patient exam rooms and will provide clinicians easy access to laboratory, X-ray, orthopedic and wound care services
  • A more centrally located nurses’ station that will provide clinicians quicker access to and from patient exam rooms
  • Updated restrooms
  • New TVs with cable TV access
  • Public Wi-Fi access
