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.
