Sep 29, 2015, 11:01 ET from CityMD

NEW YORK, Sept. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Now New Jersey families will have access to immediate, quality medical care and the exceptional service New Yorkers have enjoyed for 5 years. Premier urgent care provider CityMD will open its first New Jersey locations in Paramus on October 5th and in Clifton mid-November.

Consumer demand for convenient, quality health care has been on the rise and CityMD has been there to meet it. The company has expanded rapidly since opening its first location on Manhattan's Upper East Side in 2010. The urgent care provider now operates over 40 practice locations across Manhattan, Long Island, Rockland/Westchester Counties, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx and now New Jersey. The expansion into New Jersey comes in partnership with Hackensack University Health Network (HackensackUHN).

Dr. Nedal Shami MD, one of CityMD's founding doctors and current Chief Strategy Officer, grew up in Paramus, New Jersey. "I'm proud to bring the CityMD experience to my hometown. It feels great to know Paramus residents will have greater access to faster, quality medical care and exceptional service."

"We understand Bergen County residents have many options for medical care. People ask us how CityMD is different. One of the unique things about CityMD is our Aftercare system that connects patients with our most trusted partners, ensuring a seamless transition to continued care. Partnering with HackensackUHN is a perfect example of this."

"We are proud to partner with CityMD to open urgent care centers," said Robert C. Garrett, president and chief executive officer of Hackensack University Health Network. "Our health Network remains focused on giving our patients more options in care—from more locations to easier access. Through our partnership with CityMD, we will now provide much-needed urgent care in patient-centered facilities conveniently located throughout the northern New Jersey region. Both Hackensack University Health Network and CityMD share in this commitment to providing high-quality coordinated care."

CityMD will host an opening reception for media & CityMD executives at the new Paramus location this Thursday, October 1, 2015, 4:00 p.m.7:00 p.m. in celebration of their New Jersey expansion. To rsvp, please contact Abbie Parker at aparker@citymd.net.
