MD Now Urgent Care Readies 5000 Square Foot Facility for Lighthouse Point
The fastest growing urgent care company in Florida, MD Now Medical Centers, will open its sixth Broward County facility this week at Lighthouse Point. When MD Now opens to the public at 2502 N. Federal Hwy on March 18, the growing company will have 15 urgent care centers throughout Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties.
Strategically positioned just north of Fort Lauderdale and south of Pompano Beach, this new east Broward location gives residents in Lighthouse Point, Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, Boca Raton and Deerfield Beach quick access to reliable and efficient healthcare. Courtney Yergens, Director of Real Estate & Development for MD Now Medical Centers has been leading the work on this particular stand-alone urgent care and says the new facility will have seven total exam rooms, including two family rooms, two procedures rooms and a separate staff entrance.
“We’ve had our finger on the region’s pulse for a while and have felt that Broward County is underserved when it comes to quality urgent care,” explained Peter Lamelas, MD. “Beginning this week, the residents of Lighthouse Point will be making shorter trips to see a doctor when sudden minor illnesses and injuries arise.”
MD Now Urgent Care at Lighthouse Point will also be a boon to local industry and businesses. Offering full occupational medicine services, the Lighthouse Point location will be providing treatments and services for employers to help get employees back on their feet without too much down time. Moving beyond the typical minor accident and illness care that urgent care centers often provide, the new MD Now Urgent Care location will also serve patients who need:
- Digital X-rays
- Lab tests
- Physicals and Immunizations
Patients of the Lighthouse Point location will have access to 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. care seven days a week, even on holidays. Lamelas said “We are committed to patient care at hours, days and times when physicians are not readily available; this is medical care that residents throughout South Florida have come to rely on.”
