Your Healthy First Step
MMC's new primary care facility in Tinton Falls gives the community more access to top-notch medical services.
TO PROVIDE EXPANDED ACCESS TO primary care medical services, Barnabas Health Medical Group (BHMG) has opened BHMG Shrewsbury Primary Care in Tinton Falls.
The first in a network of three primary care facilities scheduled to open in Mon- mouth County, BHMG Shrewsbury Pri- mary Care providers at the new practice will: perform annual physical exams, give blood tests and vaccinations, diagnose and treat common medical problems, discuss healthy lifestyle choices and refer patients to medical specialists when necessary.
“In collaboration with Barnabas Health Medical Group, Monmouth Medical Cen- ter (MMC) continues to make significant strides in expanding our primary care network,” says Bill Arnold, president and CEO of Monmouth Medical Center. “A primary care provider (PCP) is a patient’s first point of contact for routine screen- ings and exams as well as for chronic conditions such as hypertension and diabetes. BHMG Shrewsbury Primary Care offers a team of physicians with vast experience in primary care medicine, in- cluding health counseling and screening, who are committed to creating partner- ships with their patients to maintain and improve lifelong health.”
Nicholas Spetko, M.D., board-certified internist with Barnabas Health Medical Group notes, “The relationship between a PCP and a patient is the keystone of care. At BHMG Shrewsbury Primary Care, our mutual goal is to keep our patients healthy over the long-term by practicing acute, chronic and preventive medicine in a coordinated, patient-centered environ- ment.” Located at 766 Shrewsbury Ave., Suite 100, West Building in Tinton Falls, the nearly 7,000-square-foot facility features calming, spa-like décor designed to create a feeling of serenity, with 14 exam rooms and ample parking. There are six BHMG physicians, all of whom are board certified in internal medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine and on staff at MMC.
