Breaking News: ER Urgent Care Centers Expands on Discount Health Card Program

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - July 9, 2007) - ER Urgent Care Centers (PINKSHEETS: ERUC) is proud to announce that it has contracted with Pedro Ortiz of Software Engineering Group to expand the capability and to create the infrastructure for our discount health card and ER ID card. New technology as well as the company's growth are influencing factors for the expansion. ER Urgent Care Centers operates centers nationwide and has seen over 100,000 patients as of June 2007. We now project to open over 200 centers throughout the United States. The ER Urgent Care Centers health card and ID card will have the capability to directly access the patients' medical information instantaneously upon their arrival to the clinic. In addition, the ID card with photo will also serve as constant reminder of ER Urgent Care in the patient's wallet or purse. Major insurers have reacted with tremendous excitement to the cards and their many benefits. The discount feature is an added benefit for individuals and families that have no healthcare insurance, a number that continues to grow. The card itself also contains the patient's photo. Jerry Miller, company Founder, said, "The card has been a success and a major marketing tool for us thus far. With this new technology we can expand the cards' capability and create parameters for over 200 centers." As more and more shareholders visit our clinics, the feedback has been very exciting. Visiting with so many of you has given us a wonderful feeling of accomplishment. We hope to see many of you this summer.
