PORT ST. LUCIE - Physicians Immediate Care is inviting the public to join in its 10th anniversary celebration on Nov. 3 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at its east clinic, 1900 S.E. Port St. Lucie Blvd. in Port St. Lucie.
Marco's Pizza, a sponsor of the event, will serve free pizza. There will be face painting, balloon twisting and children's games with prizes. There will be St. Lucie County Fire Department fire trucks and safety lessons from the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office and Port St. Lucie Police, along with the K-9 unit.
Ten years ago, Kenneth Palestrant, CEO and medical director of Physicians Immediate Care, saw a need to offer walk-in medical care for acute illness or injury that was not life or limb threatening.
In February 2003 he founded the first Physicians Immediate Care urgent care clinic on East Port St. Lucie Boulevard. So great was the demand that in the ensuing decade Dr. Palestrant opened two more urgent care centers in Port St. Lucie and one in Fort Pierce.
Physicians Immediate Care also offers employers professional services for worker's compensation, routine exams, and drug and alcohol testing.
"In the past 10 years, through three major hurricanes and countless tropical storms, Physicians Immediate Care has continued to meet the urgent care needs of Treasure Coast residents," said Dr. Palestrant.
Physicians Immediate Care is open seven days a week to serve St. Lucie and northern Martin counties.
