ER Urgent Care Centers Signs Agreement to Purchase 4 Centers

MIAMI, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 23, 2006 -- ER Urgent Care Centers (PINKSHEETS: ERUG) has entered into negotiations for the purchase of United Urgent Care Centers. With four centers in Southwest Florida, United will increase ER Urgent Care Centers' presence in the highest population growth sector in Florida. With locations in Port Richey, Sanford and 2 in Fort Myers, our expansion projections have been surpassed. Since these centers have been in business, some for over 18 months, a built-in cash flow is guaranteed. One of the centers in Fort Myers will add over $800,000 in net revenues per year to our current income. Now, with five centers on the west coast of Florida, we can minimize costs of operation and significantly increase profits. "We are very proud of this move into such a powerful growth area," said Jerry Miller, Founder and Director. "Tampa for example has not seen a new hospital built in 27 years. People are in serious need of medical attention, and ER Urgent Care Centers can bring that to them, with the highest quality healthcare available. We hope that you can all come by and visit our centers and enjoy a tour."
