Award-Winning Urgent Care Opens in Manchester Connecticut
MANCHESTER, CT — New England Urgent Care — Hartford County’s first Emergency-Trained and Certified Urgent Care — is opening East of the river in the Manchester Parkade Plaza on Friday, March 3rd. The newest walk-in medical center is located at 370 Middle Turnpike West between Cardio Express and Stop & Shop. New England Urgent Care has four other clinics in the Greater Hartford area. They are in West Hartford, Enfield, Bristol and Simsbury. New England Urgent Care has many awards for outstanding patient care.
As a Certified Urgent Care, New England Urgent Care has the training and on-site equipment such as x-rays, blood lab, EKG, respiratory and pharmacy to treat patients of every age — including newborns, infants and the elderly. And, New England Urgent Care is experienced to handle a broader range of illnesses and injuries than non-Certified walk-in clinics. They also perform physical exams for camp, school, sport and work and offer complete occupational health services.
“We are excited to become part of the Manchester community,” commented New England Urgent Care’s Medical Director and co-founder, Dr. Michael Gutman, MD, PhD, FACEP. “Our business model is simple. We provide ER-quality, cost-effective walk-in medical care for all non-emergency illnesses and injuries for all ages. Patients wait less and pay less for high-quality care, and get treated fast and efficiently with compassion every day of the week.”
New England Urgent Care News: “Care” in action: Employees Feed West Hartford Families in Need this Thanksgiving
Physician Assistant Michael Zerbe and Radiology Technician Luciane Mastrangeli — two members of the New England Urgent Care staff — spearheaded the effort and worked with West Hartford Social Service Director, Ed Sandy.
Zerbe said, “In a combined effort with the Elmwood-West Hartford Stop & Shop, which generously donated $100 towards our collection, New England Urgent Care employees collected enough money for 18 Thanksgiving dinners. Each Stop & Shop dinner package feeds a family of six and is valued at $59.99. The package consists of a 12-pound turkey, stuffing, gravy, potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberry relish, green bean casserole, and a choice of an apple or pumpkin pie.”
The Monday before Thanksgiving, New England Urgent Care employees will purchase dinner package vouchers from Stop & Shop and deliver them to West Hartford Social Services where they will be distributed to an assigned family in need. Due to privacy and confidentiality reasons, families’ names are not disclosed. To pick up their meal, each family will present their voucher to Stop & Shop the day before Thanksgiving.
“New England Urgent Care employees are excited their contribution will go a long way toward helping needy families this holiday,” explains Mastrangeli. “We care about our patients and our community. This is another way for us to put our compassion for others into action.”

Concerns about the Zika virus?
Mosquitoes spread many types of viruses and parasites that can cause diseases like chikungunya, dengue, Zika, and malaria.
Symptoms of Zika virus
Signs and symptoms of Zika virus are vague and can last for up to a week. Diagnosis of the virus is typically confirmed with a blood test.
Symptoms of Zika virus include:
- Joint pain
- Conjunctivitis (red eyes)
- Muscle pain
- Pain behind the eyes
According to the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), only 1 in 4 people infected with Zika virus develop symptoms.
Protect yourself and your family from mosquito bites:
- Wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants.
- Mosquitoes may bite through thin clothing. Treat clothes with permethrin or another Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered insecticide for extra protection.
- Use only an EPA-registered insect repellent. Higher percentages of active ingredient provide longer protection. Use an insect repellent with one of these Active ingredients: DEET, Picaridin (also known as KBR 3023), Bayrepel, icaridin, Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE), para-menthane-diol (PMD), or IR3535
- Always follow the product label instructions.
- Reapply insect repellent every few hours.
- Do not spray repellent on the skin under clothing.
- Using a sunscreen too? Apply that first, then repellent second.
In the U.S., the EPA has not evaluated most of the commonly known natural repellents for effectiveness. Examples of these ingredients include citronella oil, cedar oil, geranium oil, peppermint and peppermint oil, pure oil of lemon eucalyptus, soybean oil. The CDC recommends that you use an insect repellent containing an active ingredient shown both to be safe and effective.
