Summit Health Brings Pediatrics, Primary Care, Specialists and More to Wellmont Arts Plaza District

MONTCLAIR, N.J. – Summit Health has opened its new 30,000-square-foot, two-floor space at 1 Seymour Street in Montclair, the new seven-story building that is part of the new Wellmont Arts Plaza development. Summit Health will provide primary and specialty care for adults and children. That means you can see a dermatologist, bring your kids in for a wellness check up or get a mammogram all in one building.

The new offices, many offering fantastic NYC views, deliver connected care to patients across 17 co-located specialties, including primary care, pediatrics, dermatology, orthopedics, podiatry, OBGYN, allergy, ENT, general surgery and more.

Besides the ease of coordinated care with 20 primary care and specialty physicians under one roof, the location sports a minimalist, modern design with 63 spacious exam rooms and a pediatric suite that features both a separate sick visit and newborn waiting room.

“We are thrilled to build upon our tradition of providing excellent care to Montclair residents and to the Essex County community with our new Montclair hub,” said Summit Health CEO Jeff Alter. “Many of our Montclair-based physicians are familiar faces here in the local community, so we are really building on our roots. The Montclair hub will provide greater patient access to providers from one convenient downtown location.”

Services at the location 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 llaryngoscopy and ENT procedures.

Dr. Jack Cappitelli, Chief Medical Officer – NJ Region for Summit Health, says the new center, and Summit Health’s overall model, is all about succession, something that goes way smoother than the popular HBO series. Summit pairs seasoned doctors with newer physicians to create mentorships and allow for continuity of care in the long term. Those physicians also get the chance to bond on the Summit Health terrace — an outdoor “break” space with an incredible views, offering the opportunity to connect and recharge.

Summit Health is one of the first commercial tenants located in the Wellmont Arts Plaza, adjacent to the Wellmont Theater. The mixed-use destination, developed in partnership by Ironstate Development Company and Brookfield Properties, is a 2.5-acre development along Bloomfield Avenue at Seymour Street, comprised of rental apartments, office space, retail frontage, and parking.

And speaking of parking, 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.
