ER Urgent Care Announces Plan to Enter National Airport Market

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - July 10, 2008) - Mr. Mark Solomon, President of ER Urgent Care Centers (PINKSHEETS: ERUC), announced today that the Company has reached an agreement, in principle, with a Funding Source to provide the capital needed to initiate the Company's plans to expand into the National Airport Facilities field throughout the country, starting first at the Miami International Airport. Although no agreement has been reached yet with the owner of this new facility at the location, Mr. Solomon added that as soon as the funding is completed over the next few weeks, the Company intends to vigorously pursue an arrangement with the lessor to enter into a lease or a management agreement, with respect to the new facilities. Mr. Solomon stated that this transaction represents a significant opportunity for the Company.

Miami International Airport had over 33,740,460 passengers travel through its doors in 2007, with 384,477 flights annually and could be one of the most active airports in the US for healthcare access. Miami International directly and indirectly employs 272,400 workers and its economic impact is $25.6 Billion. Both travelers and airport employees will have direct access to the new center, which is located in the main terminal.
