A new urgent care center operated under a partnership by Orlando Health and CareSpot is set to open in Ocoee Monday, July 30.
The new center will be replacing the Orlando Health Express Care Urgent Care Clinic on Maguire and Old Winter Garden roads, which will close July 29 after more than 20 years of operation.
The new center, which will be Orlando Health and CareSpot’s 10th site in Central Florida, will be located at 10959 W. Colonial Drive, said Greg Ohe, the senior vice president of the ambulatory division at Orlando Health.
“Each of our centers are anchored by a medical director, and in addition to that, they have nurse practitioners that are able to promptly respond to patients as they show up to the various locations,” Ohe said. “One of the values that Orlando Health brings to the partnership is that we are able to round out the kind of services that a patient might need, whether that’s ambulatory surgery services or access to specialty physicians.”
Bea Goff, CareSpot’s Central Florida regional director, said the new Ocoee facility will have at least two full-time clinicians, measure about 2,500 to 2,800 square feet and include five exam rooms, one procedure room and one X-ray room.
“We’ll be able to do blood collection, and we’re going to be doing occupational health through drug screens and workers’ compensation and physicals,” Goff said. “We actually have a promotion going on right now with back-to-school physicals for $25. But we’re not going to be changing much but we are adding a few more services.”
The new facility will offer the same patient services as the former site but also will include the X-ray unit. The physicians will be able to treat non-emergency medical conditions, such as sprains, broken bones, cuts, minor burns, or upper respiratory infections, fever-like symptoms, colds, minor infections, animal bites, allergic reactions and minor injuries.
Patients are not required to make an appointment, but online scheduling and call-ahead options and walk-in visits are available.
