According to an email to employees from Advocare CEO Dr. Howard Orel, AtlantiCare urgent care centers in Clementon, Hammonton, Mount Holly, Mount Laurel and Sicklerville, and a new facility in Marlton will operate under both the AtlantiCare and Advocare names.
“This partnership is about achieving the Triple Aim goals of improving quality, patient experience and reducing cost for the community,” Orel said in the email. “Current Advocare patients will gain access to AtlantiCare’s Urgent Care Network during off hours and our organizations will share patient data electronically. Additionally, AtlantiCare Urgent Care Center patients will have access to Advocare’s network of primary and specialty care providers for ongoing needs. This will allow all patients to experience improved continuity of care.”
Advocare had been planning to expand into the urgent care market since the end of 2017.
