Doctors Express Tampa, an urgent care facility, opened in the Westchase-Citrus Park area in December. While the facility, which treats a wide range of illnesses and injuries, is currently open there are still job positions to be filled.
“We are hiring x-ray technicians, technologists and medical assistants for our Tampa location,” says Dr. Emad Yousef, co-owner of Doctor Express Tampa
. “We want to fill these positions as soon as possible. ”
The new facility offers patients an on-site lab and digital X-ray. A board-certified physician will be on duty at all times, and the facility will also have a board-certified pediatrician on-staff.
“We offer the highest-quality, top-of-the-line equipment and on-site pharmacy,” Yousef says. “Patients can get treated, get lab work done and receive the prescription all in our office. ”
With the growing popularity of urgent care facilities, Yousef plans to open more locations.
“We hope to have another location open later this year,” he says. “We also plan to open one facility a year for the next five years. The urgent care centers will be throughout Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco counties. ”
In celebration of the facility’s opening, there will be a grand opening event on Saturday, Jan. 14, from 11 a. m. to 4 p. m. The event will feature music, food, children’s activities, giveaways and free health screenings.
Doctors Express Tampa is at 6182 Gunn Hwy. in Tampa. Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week, no appointment necessary. Most insurance plans are accepted, and payment plans are available for the uninsured.
