MedExpress announces the opening of its newest southwest Florida neighborhood medical center on Wednesday, May 10 in Golden Gate at 13005 Collier Blvd. As a welcoming gift to the community, the Golden Gate center is offering free sports physicals to patients ages five and up from May 10-23.
MedExpress plans to bring the same warm, welcoming approach to more communities in the area, beginning with new centers in Estero and East Naples, which are expected to open in 2017.
The center in Golden Gate will care for people of all ages, providing urgent care, employer health services, and basic wellness and prevention services. Walk-in treatment is available for everyday illness and injury, including more advanced offerings such as X-rays, IVs, labs, minor surgery, stitches, and treatment for broken bones, sprains, and strains. Local employers can use MedExpress for a host of employer health services including workers’ compensation, injury care, pre- and ongoing employment screenings, physicals, and regulatory exams. Basic wellness and prevention services offered at MedExpress include sports physicals, routine physicals, immunizations, and tobacco cessation counseling to help Golden Gate patients maintain good health.
“We know how busy the world is today and how unexpected illness or injury can be an inconvenience,” said Marcus DeMaiolo, Area Manager, MedExpress. “MedExpress is a resource for Golden Gate families and employees that need affordable, high-quality health care close to home. We’re truly dedicated to providing patient-centric care that is available when our patients need it – so they can get great care that’s fast, but never rushed.”
The center in Golden Gate will be open every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., with no appointment necessary. MedExpress accepts all major insurances and offers affordable pricing for those without insurance. The center will be staffed by a full medical team, which includes customer service representatives, nurses, medical providers, and radiologic technologists. As a community health care partner, MedExpress believes strongly in the importance of working with fellow community health care providers to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients. When necessary, the Golden Gate team can help refer patients within the broader health care system, including referrals to specialists, primary care physicians, and hospitals.
