With tunes from 94.5 WPST setting an energizing mood, a small crowd gathered in front of Campus Town’s InFocus Urgent Care to celebrate the business’ grand opening.
“I’m very happy to be here to serve not only the faculty, staff and the community at TCNJ but the surrounding community as well,” said Dr. Seeta Arjun, the head doctor and owner of InFocus Urgent Care.
The Urgent Care will be staffed by board-certified emergency room doctors, in addition to technicians and registered nurses. InFocus will be able to care for any non-life threatening ailment, as well as do onsite x-ray and EKG diagnostic tests and give limited IV medications.
No appointments are necessary, and the facility will be open seven days a week to treat patients of any age.
“It’s just another step for Campus Town to become more successful,” said Ewing Mayor Bert Steinmann. “It’s very helpful for students who are in a situation where it’s hard to get to their family doctor while hey’re at school.”
InFocus Urgent Care is not only a convenient wellness resource for students. Community members will also enjoy the benefits of the Urgent Care’s wide array of services and acceptance of most insurances.
“As much as our retailers are for the public and the students, this is a great intersection,” said Greg Lentine, director of university campus development for the Campus Town developer, PRC.
In addition to the main Urgent Care facility, Cavi, the mental health counseling portion of the Urgent Care, will soon be open in close proximity to the InFocus building. Arjun hopes that the discreet name will make students and community members feel more comfortable using the counseling center.
“We wanted to make it sort of anonymous, so that if you need counseling, you’re not walking into a building that says ‘Urgent Care’ on it,” Arjun said.
InFocus Urgent Care’s original location is in West Windsor, New Jersey. Arjun credits her mother for serving as a source of motivation when deciding to expand the business to include a location in Campus Town.
“She’s kind of been the driving force for me to continue on my path,” Arjun said about her mother.
While having new businesses come to Campus Town is beneficial to both students and community members, those present at the grand opening were optimistic that the Urgent Care will be particularly valuable.
“The building is gorgeous. … It is phenomenal,” said Mercer County Freeholder Samuel T. Frisby. “But hospitals and buildings don’t save people. It’s people who save people. And (Arjun) is a phenomenal physician.”
New businesses that have recently come to Campus Town, including InFocus Urgent Care, have made Campus Town 85 percent leased. PostNet is now open, and HairWorx, Polished Nails, Namaste Fine Indian Cuisine and Bell Eyes are scheduled to be open shortly.
“One small business at a time makes this successful,” Steinmann said. “We’re very appreciative of (Arjun) being here. I hope (Arjun has) a long and prosperous time here in Ewing Township.”
