Saint Peter’s Healthcare System Launches Virtual Urgent Care
Saint Peter’s Virtual Urgent Care offers safe and convenient health care through a secure online service

New Brunswick, N.J. – October 10, 2023 – Saint Peter’s Healthcare System has launched a virtual urgent care service to provide convenient and accessible healthcare solutions to adults ages 18 and older in New Jersey from the comfort of their home, school, or workplace. Saint Peter’s Virtual Urgent Care allows adults experiencing non-emergency symptoms to be seen by a Saint Peter’s primary care provider through a safe, secure online service.
Saint Peter’s Virtual Urgent Care offers virtual visits with an advanced practice nurse for adults experiencing any of these symptoms:
  1. -Cold
  2. -Flu
  3. -Sinus problems
  4. -Sore throat
  5. -Pink eye
  6. -Rash/skin conditions
  7. -Urinary issues
If virtual urgent care patients do not have a primary care provider and need to be seen by a physician for further diagnosis and treatment after a virtual visit with an advanced practice nurse, they can be referred to any one of Saint Peter’s primary care physicians with offices at Saint Peter’s University Hospital or one of the Saint Peter’s Physician Associates locations.
Providers with Saint Peter’s Virtual Urgent Care can electronically send a prescription to the patient’s pharmacy of choice, if medically applicable.
“In anticipation of the upcoming flu season, we recognize the importance of offering a safe and convenient option for those seeking nonemergency medical attention. Saint Peter’s Virtual Urgent Care allows individuals to receive health care in a comfortable and private location. By opting for virtual care, individuals can protect both themselves and others by minimizing physical contact and reducing the risk of infection transmission,” said Alma Ratcliffe, MD, vice president and chief clinical transformation officer for Saint Peter’s Healthcare System.
Patients can access Saint Peter’s Virtual Urgent Care from anywhere convenient to them – home, school, or work; however, they must be physically located within the state of New Jersey at the time of service to use Saint Peter’s Virtual Urgent Care.
Saint Peter’s Virtual Urgent Care is available Monday through Friday from 5 to 10 p.m. and weekends from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
