ER Urgent Care Centers Prepares Locations for Hurricane Fay

All Four South Florida Locations to Open and Receive Patients Prior to and Immediately After Storm Passes

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - August 19, 2008) - ER Urgent Care Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ERUC) has announced that all of the Company's Urgent Care Centers are making preparations to withstand the storm once it hits in the central and south Florida areas. The four ER Urgent Care Centers in South Florida will be open to receive patients once the National Weather Service gives the "all-clear" signal that the storm has passed.

The Urgent Care staff anticipates many of the patients will likely require treatment for concussions and lacerations due to flying and falling debris. In the event that power has been disrupted due to the storm, each ER Urgent Care Center is equipped with generators to run the facilities.

"We want everyone to know that we are taking the necessary steps to protect our Urgent Care Centers to safely ride out the storm. Once it passes and the proper agencies give us the all-clear, we will immediately open our doors and be ready to treat any injuries sustained during this emergency," stated Mark Solomon, ERUC President.

The Company recently announced that it has approved an offer to exchange the Company's Common Stock for shares of Series B Preferred Stock. For each one thousand shares of the Company's Common Stock tendered in the exchange, shareholders will receive one share of the Company's newly created Series B Preferred Stock, valued at $1.00 per share.
