New Sanitas Medical Center Opens in Belleville
To increase the availability of primary care services to the Hispanic community, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey is furthering its collaboration with Sanitas, a multinational health care provider, by bringing comprehensive, cost-effective patient-centered health care services to Belleville.
The Sanitas medical center, located at 1 Clara Maass Drive, Belleville, opened its doors on May 1. Sanitas previously opened a Union City location in December 2017 and plans to open a Jersey City location later this year.
The public is invited to attend the Open House at Sanitas Medical Center Belleville on Saturday, May 19, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event will include free health screenings, giveaways, prizes, face painting and refreshments.
Sanitas medical centers are independently owned and operated by Sanitas of New Jersey LLC, and will provide care to any Horizon BCBSNJ member (Commercial, Administrative Services Only, Medicare Advantage [MA] and NJ FamilyCare), Original Medicare enrollees and patients who pay for care out of their pocket.

These medical centers are located in primarily Hispanic and ethnically diverse neighborhoods and are easily accessible via public transportation. The centers will offer same-week appointments, same-day lab tests and diagnostic imaging, and walk-in appointments for urgent care. The centers may keep patients for observation for up to six hours.
