OHI Opens a Pediatric Department in Manchester
Ocean Health Initiatives (OHI), a federally qualified health center (FQHC), has expanded its services by opening a pediatric department at its Manchester Health Center, Lakehurst Circle Center II, 686 Route 70 Lakehurst. OHI’s staff of board-certified medical providers will see patients for their pediatric exams at the Manchester site every Friday.
Pediatric services for patients ages 0 to 18 years include comprehensive primary preventive care, including well-baby, well-child, and adolescent visits; comprehensive care for acute and chronic pediatric illnesses; immunizations; and physicals for sports, school or employment. As part of OHI’s comprehensive primary care services, complete screening services are available for patients, including laboratory services.
OHI’s onsite pharmacy in Manchester affords pediatric patients the convenience of having multiple medical services at one location. The special and heavily discounted 340B medication pricing makes medication affordable for all OHI patients.
