When the medical need arises, determining the most appropriate type of care or accessing the right level of care isn't always an easy choice to make. As of December 11, residents of Pembroke Pines and neighboring communities have another access point to healthcare with the opening of a new Urgent Care Center. The 3,088-square-foot Urgent Care Center, located at Sheridan Street and 166th Avenue in West Pembroke Pines, joins Memorial Healthcare System's network of care that provides consumers with choices for treatment.

"The opening of this Urgent Care Center helps us fulfill our commitment to our community to expand purposefully and to meet the medical and healthcare needs of our residents by giving them more options to the right access to care when they need it the most," said Marc Shapiro, MD, Medical Director of the Urgent Care Center.
