Apopka Mayor John Land to Attend the Official Solantic Center Opening

Ceremony May 23, from 2-6 p.m.

ORLANDO, Fla., May 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Florida-based health care provider Solantic will continue its ambitious expansion program, opening a full service walk-in urgent care center in Apopka, Florida on May 15, 2008. A grand opening ceremony will be held on May 23, from 2-6 p.m. Apopka Mayor John Land will cut the ribbon at 2 p.m.

"We are always glad to have new businesses in our community," said Apopka Mayor John Land. "We welcome you [Solantic] to Apopka, and look forward to your [Solantic] being part of our community family as a member of the Apopka Area Chamber of Commerce."

The center will offer medical services provided by board-certified physicians, for as little as $79. Services include urgent care, treatments for injured workers, and a range of wellness services for individuals and companies including immunizations, blood work and physicals. Patients come to Solantic for illnesses and injuries ranging from the common cold to a broken bone. It is the company's sixth Orlando-area location and second of four planned to open in the area during 2008. Additional sites include the Orlando International Airport and Lake Mary. Solantic plans on 20 centers in the Orlando area and 1,000 locations nationwide over the next few years.

"Our success in Orlando suggests people want to be seen right away without an appointment, know costs before treatment and be cared for in a patient-focused environment in a timely manner," said Karen Bowling, CEO of Solantic. "Our employees' goal is to treat patients the way we would want to be treated. Each exam room has a television, x-rays are provided on a CD-ROM to patients in order that they can store or share with a specialist, and all our employees receive bonuses based on patient satisfaction survey results," added Bowling.

Gloria McKnight, a recent patient at a Solantic urgent care center in Central Florida, said, "I visited Solantic urgent care and didn't know what to expect. I had been to other emergency care centers so I imagined a long wait and less than friendly service. What I experienced, however, was quick service, friendly staff and a doctor who really listened to what I had to say. The price was much better than anywhere that I had been before and the hours were convenient. I will continue to visit Solantic and encourage others to do the same."

The Apopka Solantic facility is located at 3840 E. State Road 436, Suite 1000, at the corner of Bear Lake Road. It is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. during the week and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends. Hours will be extended once the Apopka community becomes aware of Solantic's services. Many patients pay out-of-pocket because of Solantic's low prices. However, because of Solantic's quality of care, compassion for patients, fair prices and extended weekday and weekend hours, most insurance plans cover visits to Solantic.

About Solantic

Richard Scott and Karen Bowling started Solantic in 2001 with a mission of Providing Convenient Health Care At A Fair Price With As Little Hassle As Possible. From day one, the founders focused on attracting individuals with a passion for patients and the desire to keep costs and thus, prices as low as possible. Solantic centers are open every day of the year with extended hours. Each center has digital X-ray and lab services on-site. Solantic was among the first health care providers in the country to set forth its prices in its lobby on a Starbucks style menu board. Urgent care physician visits are capped at $189. A comparable visit in the emergency room would cost in excess of $1,500.
