CentraState's Family Medicine Center is a family medicine practice that has provided primary healthcare to families in Freehold since the early 1990s. As an integral department of CentraState Healthcare System, we share the system wide goal of delivering the highest-quality medical care to members of our community through our family doctors.
Improving Access to Quality Family Healthcare
When CentraState Medical Center became a university-affiliated teaching hospital in 2005, the CentraState Family Medicine Center assumed the additional role of helping to meet the expanding need for primary medical care in our area and enhancing the level of care for patients. Family doctors are trained to diagnose and deliver primary care to patients of all ages. Our family doctors serve a vital role in coordinating patients’ care and assisting them in navigating the increasingly complicated healthcare delivery system and accessing specialty care.
Family Medicine Model
The CentraState Family Medicine Center underwent a major renovation in 2005 and converted from a clinic model to a family medicine model, which is designed to provide safe, effective, and quality care in the 21st century. In addition to having more examination rooms and highly skilled family doctors, we offer expanded office hours, and have improved our capacity to accommodate same-day care and urgent appointments. We also can perform minor surgical procedures at the CentraState Family Medicine Center and have the capability to handle onsite laboratory work and other tests for you and your family.
Family Medicine Center: A Teaching Practice
While providing quality medical care to families in the central NJ community, the CentraState Family Medicine Center also serves as a training site for resident physicians in family medicine through CentraState’s Family Medicine Residency Program. The CentraState Family Medicine Residency Program is operated in conjunction with the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. Our highly qualified residents are on site daily at the CentraState Family Medicine Center under the close supervision of experienced practitioners, including family doctors, and medical educators. The residents also train at CentraState Medical Center and in private physician offices during their three-year residency.
Medical students, nursing students and students in related medical disciplines also receive training in this practice. They are assigned responsibilities suited to their level of education. The care of all patients is under the direct supervision of the board-certified faculty.
