ER Urgent Care Centers Announce Tampa Grand Opening

MIAMI, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 12, 2006 -- ER Urgent Care Centers (PINKSHEETS: ERUG) ER Urgent Care Center has announced the grand opening of its eighth center. It is located in Tampa, Florida, an area that is in desperate need of healthcare facilities. Hospital Emergency rooms are overwhelmed and are turning away patients on a daily basis. The initial estimates for daily patient counts should exceed thirty. With an average of $200.00 in fees per patient, the net profits for this location will be significant. Also the proximity to Saint Joseph Hospital will play a major role in patient flow. The average wait time at Saint Joseph's emergency room exceeds six hours. Jerry Miller, Founder and Director, said at a recent press conference, "We are very excited with this Grand Opening. We have now entered a vital market for Urgent Care, an area with a great need for Healthcare." We hope that all of you can stop in for a visit.
