Bergen New Bridge Medical Center in Paramus is opening its second CareRite Now health center on Friday, Jan. 6 at Inserra Supermarkets ShopRite of New Milford, 250 River Road, New Milford.
A grand opening celebration takes place at 11 a.m. with giveaways, refreshments, t-shirts and health screenings. CareRite Now welcomes walk-ins in addition to scheduled appointments for the health and wellness needs of patients 12 and older. The centers, which will be located at Select Inserra Supermarkets, will be staffed with physicians and nurse practitioners and are intended to offer care that feels more like a private practice than typical urgent care.
“We took two different, but like-minded organizations and we got together to develop something that is going to be unique in our industry,” said Ron Onorato, President and COO of Inserra Supermarkets. “Bergen New Bridge has given us an opportunity to give back in a big way to the community we serve and to those who come here weekly to shop.”
CareRite Now health centers accept all major insurance plans as well as Medicare, Medicaid and self pay and will offer multi-language capabilities, including English, Polish, and Spanish depending on the location.

- Wellness and illness visits
- Physicals, including athletic, camp, and school physicals
