Summit Health opens hub at Wellmont Arts Plaza
Summit Health has opened a 30,000-square-foot health care hub in Montclair, to provide primary and specialty care for adults and children.
The health network is among the first commercial tenants to locate in the newly opened mix-use development at Wellmont Arts Plaza.
The location on the sixth and seventh floors of a new seven-story building at 1 Seymour St. has 63 exam rooms, and includes a pediatric suite that features both a separate sick visit and newborn waiting room.
Other services include pediatric otolaryngology; on-site diagnostic radiological imaging services including mammography, bone density, ultrasound, and general x-ray; on-site lab, providing phlebotomy, urinalysis, and blood tests; and outpatient procedures, including laryngoscopy and ENT procedures.
There are 20 primary care and specialty physicians at the health care hub.
Summit Health has other offices in Montclair, on North and South Fullerton Avenue, as well as on Fairfield Street, and several in surrounding towns.
“Many of our Montclair-based physicians are familiar faces here in the local community, so we are really building on our roots,” Summit Health CEO Jeff Alter said.
Validated parking for Summit Health patients is available in the West Parking Garage via South Fullerton Avenue, between The Crescent and Plymouth Street. Visitors on foot can access the main entrance via Seymour Street or through the Wellmont Arts Plaza, which intersects Bloomfield Avenue.
The 2.5-acre development along Bloomfield Avenue at Seymour Street was developed by Ironstate Development Company and Brookfield Properties, and consists of rental apartments, office space, retail frontage and parking. A grand opening ceremony for the plaza had been planned for Nov. 13, but was put off due to inclement weather. Summit Health held its own ribbon cutting Nov. 10.
Essex County Commissioner Brendan Gill, a Montclair resident, said with Summit’s history in town, “it is fitting they are among the first major businesses in the Wellmont Arts District.” He was joined at the ribbon-cutting by Township Councilman Bob Russo, Councilman Peter Yacobellis, Councilman David Cummings and Councilwoman Lori Price Abrams.
