Cooper University Health Care celebrated the opening of its newest Urgent Care Center in Cinnaminson – its first in Burlington County – on May 9, 2017.
Cinnaminson Township Mayor Anthony Minniti joined Cooper University Health Care President and Chief Executive Officer, Adrienne Kirby, PhD, FACHE; and, James Flowers, DO, Medical Director of Cooper Urgent Care Centers, for the ribbon-cutting ceremony. The center, located in the Shoppes at Cinnaminson at 175 Route 130, will open and begin seeing patients on Monday, May 15, 2017.
“Cooper’s Urgent Care Center in Cinnaminson will provide a much needed, convenient service to local residents who need immediate medical treatment,” said Dr. Kirby. “As the leading academic tertiary care health system in the region, we are happy to be able to bring our expertise in urgent care to Burlington County residents and complement our existing services in the county.”
Cooper has more than 100 ambulatory care sites throughout the region, including numerous Burlington County-based primary care and specialty care offices. In addition to the Cinnaminson location, Cooper also operates Urgent Care Centers in Cherry Hill and Audubon, NJ.
Patients do not have to make an appointment, but will be treated on a walk-in basis at all Cooper Urgent Care Centers. Unlike other urgent care centers, all Cooper Urgent Care Centers have board-certified emergency medicine physicians ready to treat a range of health issues with the added benefit of providing X-ray services at the same location. All of Cooper’s Urgent Care Centers also offer an advance reservation system through Cooper’s website. Patients simply reserve a spot online and arrive at the appropriate time to avoid long waits.
“Unlike other models, Cooper Urgent Care Centers are staffed with our board-certified, Emergency Medicine physicians and they are the same physicians who see patients in our emergency department at Cooper University Hospital. This high level of care is what sets us apart, as these doctors are trained to treat a wide variety of injuries and illnesses that present in an emergency setting,” said Dr. Flowers.
The Cinnaminson Urgent Care Center provides walk-in care seven days a week, Monday – through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
