Visitors will be able to tour the facility, learn about the services available and meet the care team, which includes doctors, advanced practice nurses, nurses, medical assistants and radiology technicians.

St. Luke’s Care Now-Belvidere is the 15th walk-in care center operated by St. Luke’s. Other centers are located in Allentown, Bethlehem, Brodheadsville, Center Valley, Emmaus, Hamburg, Jim Thorpe, Lehighton, New Ringgold, Pennsburg, Quakertown, Whitehall and Wind Gap in Pennsylvania, and in Clinton, New Jersey.

Care Now is not intended to replace an individual’s primary care physician or manage chronic health concerns. Instead, St. Luke’s Care Now-Belvidere provides treatment when a patient's family doctor is unavailable, or when a patient's injury or illness requires immediate attention but is not an acute emergency. Patients will find it convenient for fever and flu-like symptoms, sinus infections, bronchitis, sprains, strains, broken bones, dislocations, cuts, minor burns, animal bites and other minor medical concerns.

No appointment is ever needed. In addition to walk-in medical care, St. Luke’s Care Now locations offer onsite diagnostic testing such as lab and X-ray and comprehensive occupational medicine services to employers. Patients also are able to take home many common prescription medications. Radiology will take walk-in patients from any referrer.

“Because the cost of care is usually lower than an emergency room visit, Care Now is a time-efficient and cost-effective option,” said Joe Cunningham, Senior Network Director of Urgent Care & Occupational Medicine Services at St. Luke’s University Health Network. 

St. Luke’s Care Now-Belvidere’s hours will be 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. It is closed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day.  The phone number is 908-847-3418.
