A ribbon cutting with the Greater Brandon Chamber of Commerce, and free flu shots marked the grand opening of Florida Hospital Centra Care’s newest urgent care facility in Riverview, today. The Flu Fighter event, which began at noon, offers 1,000 free flu shots until 5pm, while supplies last.
“We’re excited to join the Brandon/Riverview neighborhood,” said Scott Brady, MD, CEO of Centra Care. “We’re here today not only to celebrate the new facility, but to emphasize our commitment in keeping the community healthy. We hope that if you haven’t done so already, you’ll visit us during today’s event for a free flu shot.”
Located at 10222 Bloomingdale Avenue, the all-new 5,000 sqft center is Centra Care’s second in the Tampa Bay area. There are now 23 locations throughout Florida.
For thirty years, patients have come to trust Centra Care in their communities. As Central Florida’s only hospital affiliated urgent care provider, Centra Care will provide Riverview and Brandon residents with fast and convenient care for urgent, non-emergency medical needs. From coughs, colds, infections, allergies and flu, to broken bones and other orthopedic conditions, Centra Care’s team of board certified, adult and pediatric-trained doctors, will be available to families seven days a week - weekdays from 8AM–8PM and weekends from 8AM–5PM.
Because time is valuable, Centra Care offers an online, No Wait Reservations system, to schedule to see a doctor when it’s convenient for patients. But, because Centra Care understands injuries and illnesses can happen at the most unexpected moments, walk-ins are always welcome. Centra Care also offers on-site labs, and other immediate healthcare services such as X-rays, EKG, stitches, physicals, blood pressure testing, immunizations, and more.
Beyond walk-in urgent care, Centra Care offers employers and employees a wide variety of pre-employment and worker’s compensation services including prompt, affordable care for work injuries, employee physicals and drug and alcohol testing for public and private employers, of all sizes.
