Newton Medical Center is known for its medical and technical excellence, and has emerged as a leader in diagnostic cardiac services with the 2006 opening of the Charles L. Tice Heart Center for Diagnostic Services. The Heart Center is the first step toward offering angioplasties. The Heart Center offers the latest services in diagnostic cardiac care.
Newton Medical Center also recently opened the Sleep Diagnostic & Treatment Center, located across the street from the hospital's Main Campus at 222 High Street. At the Sleep Center, people are treated more like hotel guests than patients.
The hospital, however, is most known for providing state-of-the-art care at the most impressive and dynamic Emergency Department in the area. Equipped to handle 45,000 patient visits per year, the Emergency Department features 30 private treatment areas, a CT scanner and access to Laboratory and Radiology services. The reconstruction of the Emergency Department in 2005 included the addition of a bright and roomy atrium waiting area.
In the last decade, Newton Medical Center has effectively positioned itself as a healthcare system with the opening of Ambulatory Wellness Centers in Sparta and Milford. The facilities built and owned by Newton Medical Center house physician offices, blood-draw sites and radiology services. They are proof of the hospital's commitment to providing quality care close to home.
In a number of Joint Ventures with other entities, Newton Medical Center has also helped to bring the area's first cancer treatment center to the Sparta Health & Wellness Center. It brought the latest radiation therapy technology and other oncology services closer to the homes of our patients as did the opening of a dialysis center in Newton.
