EWING, N.J., Feb. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- AfterOurs Urgent Care has entered into an agreement with Capital Health System (CHS) to improve access for acute illnesses and injuries at the Capital Health System Primary Care location on the Corner of Scotch Rd and Parkway Avenue in Ewing.  Area patients will now have access to providers from 8AM until 10PM on weekdays and from 9AM to 9PM on weekends and holidays.   AfterOurs will operate its urgent care service at 1230 Parkway Avenue, Parkway Corporate Center, Suite 203 Ewing, NJ 08628, nights, weekends and holidays.  Capital Health will continue its normal operating hours on weekdays.

AfterOurs clinics have an average door-to-treatment time of less than one hour (vs. the national average of three hours at an ER).  The cost is typically less than half the cost of an emergency room visit.  "Time is money and urgent care saves both for patients," explained Christopher Rehm, CEO of AfterOurs. "Most area families with insurance have consumer directed health plans which come with high deductibles… That means patients pay for most or all of their healthcare services until deductibles are reached."  That could be in the thousands of dollars when it comes to an ER visit and unfortunately, it is worse for those without insurance because they don't benefit from the discounts negotiated by insurance plans.  Whether or not you have insurance, you are unlikely to pay more than $200 for your visit at AfterOurs," he added. 

"We work closely with area primary care providers to create the most convenient experience for our patients… Doing so helps minimize duplicative services such as labs or Xrays that are often unavailable after visits outside their primary care,"  stated Dr. Mark Magariello, Medical Director for AfterOurs. 

AfterOurs plans to add several locations in Mercer County, with locations in Trenton and Lawrence already determined for the second quarter of 2016.
