Barnabas Health And MinuteClinic Enter Into Clinical Collaboration In Monmouth And Ocean Counties

WOONSOCKET, R.I. and WEST ORANGE, N.J., Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MinuteClinic, the retail health care division of CVS Caremark (NYSE: CVS) and Barnabas Health in New Jersey have signed a clinical collaboration to enhance access to high quality, affordable health care services in Monmouth and Ocean counties.

Under the agreement, Barnabas Health physicians will serve as medical directors for three MinuteClinic walk-in medical clinics open seven days a week inside select CVS/pharmacy stores in Jackson, Manalapan and Marlboro, New Jersey.  In addition, MinuteClinic and Barnabas Health will collaborate on patient education and disease management initiatives and will inform patients of the services each provide.

Barnabas Health will accept patients who need a level of care that is not provided among MinuteClinic services. Signage at MinuteClinic locations will inform patients that each site has an affiliation with Barnabas Health.

The Barnabas Health system in Monmouth and Ocean Counties includes: The Children's Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center and Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch; Community Medical Center, the Pediatric Subspecialty Center, and Barnabas Health Behavioral Health Center, all in Tom's River; Kimball Medical Center in Lakewood; and a network of more than 4,600 physicians and 18,200 employees in New Jersey.

"MinuteClinic joins Barnabas Health in its commitment to provide the highest quality medical care to the people of Central New Jersey with a focus on reducing costs and increasing accessibility to health care services," said Andrew Sussman, M.D., President, MinuteClinic and Senior Vice President/Associate Chief Medical Officer, CVS Caremark.  "As we have experienced elsewhere in New Jersey and in other communities in the U.S., strategic clinical affiliations between MinuteClinic and major health systems such as Barnabas Health enhance our ability to offer medical services to patients in convenient retail locations near where they live and work."

MinuteClinic medical clinics are staffed by nurse practitioners who provide treatment for acute illnesses and administer wellness and prevention services, including health condition monitoring.
