MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- April 9, 2013

Physicians Urgent Care opened its first Indiana clinic yesterday, providing
Mishawaka residents a solution to their urgent and unexpected health care
needs. The company also announced two additional clinics for the area, with
locations in South Bend and Elkhart opening in the summer and fall,
respectively. The Physicians Urgent Care medical teams treat non-life
threatening injuries and illnesses, no appointment necessary, seven days a
week.

“We are proud to offer service in Indiana and to bring the surrounding areas
of the Mishawaka, South Bend and Elkhart communities the expertise,
convenience and committed care for which Physicians Urgent Care is known,”
said Stan Blaylock, CEO of Physicians Urgent Care.

Mishawaka Clinic Now Open

Today, Physicians Urgent Care celebrated the Mishawaka grand opening with
members of the Chamber of Commerce of St. Joseph County and local government
officials at the clinic, located at 505 West Cleveland Road in Mishawaka (on
the north side of the University Park Mall). The clinic will be open from 8
a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends.

“Questions about health concerns can create a lot of anxiety. People worry
about things like ‘Is it a virus?,’ ‘Do I need stitches?’ or ‘Is it broken?’”
said Dr. Lawrence Miller, one of the Mishawaka clinic’s physicians. “Some
injuries and illnesses really can’t wait. When someone in Mishawaka can’t get
into their doctor and it isn’t severe enough for the ER, we’re here to help.
We cure the worry our patients have about their health.”

The 4,100 square-foot Mishawaka facility features eight exam rooms for
treating injuries and illnesses and performing minor surgical procedures,
including two trauma rooms, a pediatric room and a hearing booth. To diagnose
a fracture or broken bone, the clinic has a digital X-ray system operated by a
licensed radiologic technologist. Physicians Urgent Care also offers on-site
lab work, some prescription drugs and supplies such as crutches, slings,
splints and back supports.

“Having served the northern Indiana community for more than 15 years, I am
excited to join Physicians Urgent Care,” said Dr. Eugene Huang, one of the
Mishawaka clinic’s physicians. “At Physicians, our patients have the benefit
of seeing two doctors who are board certified in emergency medicine and can
diagnose, treat and prescribe medicine.”

Urgent care clinics are not only convenient, but also cost-effective.
Physicians Urgent Care accepts health insurance, including Anthem Blue Cross
and Blue Shield, Medicare and TRICARE Standard. The clinic also offers a 30
percent discount* for those without insurance.

“We know that our patients are looking for a reliable and affordable health
care option, which is why our clinic focuses on getting patients in as quickly
as possible, but we never rush care,” said Dr. Miller. “We take the time to
treat each patient thoroughly, and we follow up with them after their visit.”

Beyond walk-in urgent care, Physicians Urgent Care also provides occupational
health services seven days a week – offering prompt, affordable care for work
injuries, employee physicals and drug and alcohol testing. To help Mishawaka
employers lower their workers’ compensation costs, the team expertly balances
employee care with each company’s unique business needs.

Physicians Urgent Care, also known as Physicians Immediate Care in Illinois
and Oklahoma, is one of the largest urgent care providers in the Midwest and
has been serving employers in just about every industry for more than 25
years.
