ER Urgent Care Expands Tampa Center

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - March 6, 2008) - ER Urgent Care Centers (ERUC) (PINKSHEETS: ERUC) is proud to announce that it has expanded the Tampa ER Urgent Care. Due to a significant increase in patient flow at the Tampa center we have increased hours and added an additional physician. Demand has grown in the area due to the closings of emergency rooms in that section of the State of Florida. We will begin seeing patients at 9:00 am and remain open till 12:00 midnight. We hope to continue expanding centers based on increased traffic, a goal we have set for 2008. "This is very exciting news for our shareholders. The demand for what we do as a healthcare provider has increased to the degree that we must expand locations," said Jerry Miller, ERUC Founder. We hope that many of you have the opportunity to visit our clinics and enjoy a tour.
