BRICK – Ocean Health Initiatives (OHI), a federally qualified health center (FQHC), opened its sixth site in Ocean County at 1608 Route 88, Suite 207 in Brick and is accepting new patients.
The Brick Health Center, formerly run by Ocean Medical Center, has six exam rooms. OHI’s medical services include internal medicine, family medicine and a range of pediatric services. Women’s Health services are being planned for the future.
Brick Health Center, now owned and operated by OHI, is working in partnership with Ocean Medical Center and Hackensack Meridian Health to include all current and new patients referred by Ocean Medical Center, in addition to accepting all new patients.
All patients of the Brick Health Center also have access to many other services OHI offers at its five other health center locations throughout Ocean County. OHI’s services include dental, podiatry, behavioral health, social services and on-site pharmacies. Patients also have access to LabCorp services at all OHI health centers and the award-winning Patient Portal that allows patients to access to their medical records online.
Dr. Jay V. Wortzel and his Clinical Team are currently seeing patients at the Brick Health Center, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Hours are subject to seasonal changes.
Dr. Theresa Berger, President and CEO of OHI, said, “OHI is proud to be able to reach out to more residents of Ocean County by opening our sixth facility.
