CompleteCare Health Network plans to establish a 19,000-square-foot new-build medical center in Millville’s Glasstown Arts District in late October.
The facility will occupy a corner of East Broad and North High streets, absorbing employees and services currently housed at the former hospital on High St.
CompleteCare has been utilizing the former Millville hospital since 2005, shortly after it closed.
CompleteCare first opened its doors in the county in 1973, with two clinics. The nonprofit presently has 20 locations in Cumberland, Gloucester, and Cape May counties, serving over 62,000 patients annually.
The purpose of the medical centers is to provide primary care services to uninsured and underinsured people, such as family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, OB/GYN, mental health, podiatry, chiropractic care, nephrology, infectious disease, dermatology, optometry, dental, addiction, and HIV treatment.
The Millville project is expected to cost around $4.5 million. The Bridgeton project is expected to cost around $15 million. Both projects were meticulously designed to avoid demolishing historic structures.
CompleteCare is remodeling the Zelphy’s Liberation Center for the Performing Arts at 530-532 N. High St. in Millville. A new two-story extension is being added to the center.
The center will be located at 1430 North Pearl St. in Bridgeton and will be approximately 28,000 square feet. A former Minotola Bank will be incorporated into the new structure.
On the first floor of the Millville center, there will be primary medical and adult health services. The second floor will be dedicated to pediatric treatment. Dental, behavioral health, and pharmaceutical services will all be available at the center.
The Millville and Bridgeton centers will essentially provide the same services. CompleteCare launched its first such center in Vineland in February 2016 at 785 W. Sherman Ave., a $7 million facility.
