Bikur Cholim of Raritan Valley

The Biker Cholim website is a   wonderful resource for information and services that that are available to those that find themselves within the community in a time of need.

Bikur Cholim of Raritan Valley has set up an account at the Rite-Aid in Highland Park, located at 332 Raritan Ave., so that you can make emergency medical purchases on shabbos and yom tov.  Just let the Rite-Aid cashiers know that you are making a purchase on the Bikur Cholim account.  They will swipe the Bikur Cholim card and make a note of your name and phone number.  Bikur Cholim is relying on you to reimburse them, promptly, after Shabbos or Yom Tov.  Please call the Bikur Cholim hot line (732-572-7181) if you have any questions.  The address to send your check to is 7 Marshall Drive, Edison, NJ 08817.  Please do not wait for them to bill you.  Please note:  the line of credit at Rite-Aid is limited.  This account is strictly for medical emergencies. 

For those that need transportation services on shabbos or yom tov, you can call AA Checker Cab at (732) 545-2300, and mention that it is for "Bikur Cholim".  Just like with the account that Bikur Cholim has with Rite-Aid, your prompt payment after shabbos or yom tov, is appreciated.

There are very few pharmacies in the area that offer a true 24-hour PHARMACY where prescriptions can be called-in/picked up.  However, there are many 24-hour store locations where over-the-counter (OTC) medications and various medical supplies can be picked up.  Please be careful to differentiate between the non-pharmacy store hours and the pharmacy hours when seeking a 24-hour pharmacy.  The most up-to-date information on pharmacy hours can be found on each pharmacy's respective website.  If you need to use the store locator; Edison's zip code is 08817, Highland Park's is 08904, New Brunswick's is 08901, and East Brunswick's is 08816.
