HAMMONTON – Two guest speakers updated the Hammonton Rotary Club on the new AtlantiCare Health Park at the club’s May 10 meeting at Rocco’s Townhouse.
Glen Ann Stoll, regional business development director for AtlantiCare; and Donna M. Sutts, medical practice office supervisor, gave an overview of the $20.6 million, 39,000-square-foot health park and satellite emergency department, which opened last July at 219 N. White Horse Pike.
Through a time share system, the health park gives local residents access to an extensive variety of specialty services including cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, nephrology, neurology, gynecology/obstetrics, pulmonology, urology and vascular medicine, Stoll and Sutts noted. Imaging services, clinical labs, wound care are and home health care also available right on site.
The satellite emergency department and health park operate in tandem with its urgent care, family medicine, and behavioral health practices located a short distance up the road at Broadway Square, 120 S. White Horse Pike, they explained.
The evening’s program also spotlighted a $500 grant from AtlantiCare Foundation made in support of a Hammonton Rotary Club program to supply hygiene products to patrons of the St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank, located in the basement of the St. Joseph Convent.
The program, also funded by a grant from Rotary District 7640, and funds raised by the Hammonton Rotary Club from the community, supplies toothpaste, soap and other products to more than 1,000 patrons of the food bank each month, according Hugh LaMonaca, program chairman.
