LAKE SUCCESS, NY – June 11, 2012 – PM Pediatrics, an award-winning provider of after-hours pediatric urgent care, today announced the launch of its newest location in Livingston, New Jersey. The 6,000 square foot practice will be located at 571 West Mt. Pleasant Ave in Livingston, NJ and is scheduled to open in the Fall of 2012. This new office marks the company's fifth site and its first New Jersey location. Dr. Michael Bachman, who was recently appointed as the New Jersey Regional Medical Director for PM Pediatrics, will serve as the Medical Director of the new Livingston office, overseeing all medical operations for the practice.
In addition to the northern New Jersey site, PM Pediatrics has locations in Long Island, Westchester and Queens. The new Livingston practice will provide “walk-in” after-hours urgent care 365 days a year, from 4:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. on weekdays, and from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. on weekends and holidays.
"Expanding the PM Pediatrics footprint into New Jersey is a big step forward to implementing the Company's long-term development and growth plans," said Dr. Jeffrey Schor, founder of PM Pediatrics. "We feel passionately that children everywhere deserve the best urgent care experience possible and would greatly benefit from our distinct model of healthcare."
"We are excited to introduce PM Pediatrics to the families of northern New Jersey and I look forward to partnering with the community to deliver our top-quality brand of pediatric urgent care,” said Dr. Michael Bachman, New Jersey Regional Medical Director for PM Pediatrics.
Every PM Pediatrics practice is staffed by Pediatric Emergency Specialists who provide specialized care and treatment for a broad array of illnesses and injuries including asthma, fever and other infections, dehydration, sprains and fractures, wounds requiring stitches and much more. Each office has on-site digital x-ray producing high resolution images that are easily sent to a patient’s primary care physician via CD-ROM or electronically. Each location also features a comprehensive laboratory which is capable of performing rapid blood, urine and chemistry workups. PM Pediatrics takes special care to send each patient’s medical record to their primary care provider the day of their visit, ensuring timely follow-up and continuity of care. Each practice also has access to specialists such as plastic surgeons or orthopedists, as needed.
Each PM Pediatrics office is conveniently located and uniquely themed, providing caregivers and children with a healthcare experience that is unlike any other. The distinctly designed practices, which showcase jungle, seaside, Medieval Times, and Main Street USA themes, create a kid-friendly environment featuring TVs in every exam room. This model of care, comfort and convenience has been enthusiastically received by patients who have visited a PM Pediatrics location over 275,000 times since the first site opened in Syosset.
