There's a new, unique health center in Hamilton Township focused on helping those who constantly put themselves aside to help all of us...first responders. This one-of-a-kind program is now open, and it's not only for first responders, but their families as well, according to Licensed Professional Counselor, Lisa Fasanella.

It's called the First Responder Partnership Health Center, and it sounds amazing. It's healthcare for heroes conveniently located at 200 Horizon Center Blvd., off of Route 130 South, across from Hamilton Marketplace.

It's the comprehensive care that those who help the community on a daily basis deserve. It's open to all first responders, paid AND volunteer, meaning employees of police departments, New Jersey fire departments, emergency medical service personnel like paramedics and EMTs, dispatchers, park rangers, state and local correctional facility personnel, child protection and permanency investigators, medical examiners, Office of the Attorney General investigators, county prosecutors' office investigators, PLUS, all spouses and covered dependents. Wow.

So, what services does the First Responder Partnership Health Center offer? Everything. It's a one-stop-shop, if you will, for all needs. It's a primary care setting offering medical services (including urgent care needs), behavioral health services, x-rays, physical therapy, chiropractic services, lab work, health assessments, whatever professional annual physicals are required, and CDL physicals. There's even an onsite pharmacy.

The center recognizes the grueling lifestyle and busy schedules of first responders, so they've made it very convenient to get the care they need. The center has extended hours from 7am to 7pm with same day appointment scheduling. Telehealth and telemedicine are also offered for some of the services for even more convenience. There aren't even any copays if you're covered under the State Health Benefit Plan.

Please spread the word about the wonderful new healthcare center. If you're a first responder, please reach out...it is strictly confidential. Self care is so important. Make you and your family a priority. They are ready to help.
