Upon completion, Atlantic Health will have a majority ownership of the 11 Thompson Healthcare & Sports Medicine locations across Ocean, Monmouth, Burlington and Atlantic counties, and further expands patient access to the Atlantic Health System network’s already extensive list of locations including CentraState Healthcare System, seven Immediate Care urgent care locations and dozens of physician offices.

“Innovative care that keeps each patient’s unique needs at the center of their medical journey is a hallmark of both of these two health care organizations,” said Kevin Lenahan, executive vice president, chief business and strategy officer, Atlantic Health System. “By combining our efforts on behalf of the communities in central and southern New Jersey, we can ensure every patient has access to the high-quality care they deserve in a way that is convenient and comfortable for them.”
