The Urgent Care Center

The new Urgent Care Center enhances Brookdale’s services of medical care for the community by providing extended weekday and weekend hours improving the quality of treatment and reducing the wait times for patients in a non-Emergency Room setting.  The Center provides faster and more efficient medical care to community residents on an unscheduled and walk-in basis.  It is staffed with physicians and nurse practitioners in separate specially designed areas for both pediatric patients and adults. The Center also includes outpatient X-ray services and a retail pharmacy for a one-stop doctor visit for most patients. To ensure seamless care patient’s medical records will be transmitted to his/her primary care physician for any required follow up visits.
