Pediatric Express Care Medicine

The Rutgers Health Express Care Medicine practice offers opportunities for pediatric patients with minor illnesses and injuries to receive a diagnosis and treatment by pediatricians at the busiest times of the day. The practice helps expedite care and significantly decrease time spent in the emergency department (ED), notably by emphasizing newer ultrasound capabilities that more quickly diagnose problems.

We also have a telemedicine program, which connects the ED at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset in Somerville, NJ, to physicians in pediatric emergency medicine at Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital (BMSCH) at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ. Our telemedicine program helps share the academic and clinical expertise of our physicians, and offers the opportunity for patient transfers to the ED at BMSCH.

Physicians who serve the express care and telemedicine programs are faculty members of Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, a part of Rutgers University, one of the top research institutions in America. Our doctors are active in research and in teaching about all aspects of pediatric and emergency medicine, and each brings leading-edge knowledge from the classroom to the exam room.

If your child needs medical care for minor illnesses and injuries, consider choosing Rutgers Health Express Care Medicine first.
