ExpressCare Urgent Care Centers

1. What is the focus of ExpressCare Urgent Care Centers?

Express Care Urgent Care Centers provides Urgent Care medical services to the community in an effort to keep patients who need immediate medical attention from waiting in the Emergency Department or when they are unable to see their personal provider on short notice.


2. What has this year been like?

This year has been a very busy one for ExpressCare. We grew in size by 6 clinics. We acquired our first clinics in Pennsylvania which are our CareSTAT family of clinics. This was a new challenge for our team but it has been a great adventure.


3. What are your expansion plans for the future?

In 2016, we plan to continue our expansion in Pennsylvania and Maryland. We have plans for about 6 additional clinics including Red Lion and Shrewsbury, PA and well as centers on the campuses of Sinai and Northwest Hospitals.


4. Describe a typical day in your life?

Managing operations for 22 clinics is never dull and there is no “typical day” Many days start with conference calls at 7am followed by rushing out the door to get to the clinic to see patients by 8am. If I am not scheduled in the center for patient care then I typically travel to our centers with site visits or interviews. In addition, I probably check my email 30 times in a day and am always on the phone. There is always something going on at ExpressCare.


5. What inspires you?

I am inspired by others who work hard. I have been blessed with many great opportunities in my life and would not want to waste a single chance I have been given. Many people work more than one job to support their family and never complain. I have always been inspired by people who do all they can to work hard each and every day.

6. Who is your mentor?

My Mentor is Dr. Maurice Reid, Founder and CEO of ExpressCare Urgent Care Centers. Dr. Reid is a remarkable physician who believes in treating everyone with the highest level of care and respect. He demonstrates this not only through his philosophy of patient care but also through his employees and company vision. He has given me a great opportunity to combine two areas that I have always been fascinated with: medicine and business which is a rare opportunity for a Physician Assistant.


7. Bachata, Merengue or Salsa?

Sadly, I have two left feet and wouldn’t do justice to any of these beautiful dances.


8. What is your favorite Spanish Word?

Albondigas!  It’s a fun word to say.


9. Café…con leche y azúcar or black?

Con leche y azucar.
