BORDENTOWN – It’s been a long time coming, but the new location for Capital Health Primary Care–Bordentown is up and running.
The primary care center that serves the Burlington County area opened its new facility to patients on May 18 at 100 K. Johnson Boulevard N., Suite 101, in Bordentown.
Kate Stier, who is the director of Public Relations/Marketing for Capital Health, said the healthcare workers at the facility are doing the best they can to follow the protocols from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to serve the Bordentown and Burlington County community during the coronavirus pandemic.
“We’re happy to open up our new facility and centralize some of our services to our patients,” Stier said.
Under the CDC guidelines, the primary care center stated in a press release that all individuals (healthcare workers, patients, etc.) that enter the facility must wear a face mask and have their temperatures taken prior to entering.
If any person has been exposed to COVID-19 in the prior 14 days or has a temperature of 100°F or higher, they will not be permitted in the office and will instead be asked to schedule a video visit.
The press release also mentions that the primary care center is cleaned with hospital-approved disinfectant on a regular basis, and seating areas have been rearranged to support social distancing.
While the facility does not perform any COVID-19 tests or serve any patient with the virus, the physicians at the center can write a script for a patient to receive a test at any testing site if needed, Stier added.
In addition to the new facility, the primary care center has added additional health care services for patients in the area.
Stier said Rothman Orthopedic Institute will open a site in the center shortly.
Another practice that has been added to the center is a Capital Health OB/GYN-Bordentown office that is headed up by Dr. Natalia Miranda and Dr. Stephanie Schwartz, Stier said.
