Concentra, a subsidiary of Humana Inc., announced today it has expanded its customer base and reach in the Northern New Jersey market with the acquisition of The Doctor Is In, located in West New York, N.J. The acquisition of this center expands Concentra’s geographic footprint to 11 centers in Northern New Jersey.
The Doctor Is In medical center, located at 6701 Bergenline Ave, will now operate under the Concentra Urgent Care name. Practice owner and provider Ronald Weiss, M.D. along with several medical staff members, providers, and non-medical personnel have been retained, building on their long-standing relationships they have developed within the community. The newest Concentra Urgent Care location will offer urgent and occupational health and wellness services, as well as health education services to patients and employers.
Ted Bucknam, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Concentra, said, "This is an excellent opportunity to further expand our service and medical expertise in Northern New Jersey. The Doctor Is In has a proven record of service to the community, providing comprehensive medical treatment for the private patient community - a philosophy that parallels that of Concentra and ultimately results in tremendous benefits for patients and clients."
This acquisition supports Concentra’s extensive client base, its long history as the leading provider of occupational medicine to employees, and a growing demand for comprehensive health and wellness services. The company employs board-certified physicians, licensed therapists, occupational health specialists, and trained medical technicians to deliver exceptional heath care to patients across the country.
Existing patients of The Doctor Is In medical center will have increased access to quality and convenient health services through Concentra Urgent Care locations in the greater Tri-State area. For a complete list of locations, visit www.concentra.com.
