St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) October 3, 2009
Lakeside Occupational Medical Centers, Inc., recognized leader in occupational medicine, has taken over previous Medero Medical location north of Tampa International Airport. Southwest Florida's most comprehensive resource for occupational health services announced today that it has opened its newest Lakeside Occupational Medical Centers clinic in the Tampa Bay area. Located just north of the airport, at the corner of Hillsborough Road and Hoover Blvd. in Tampa, this newest clinic adds strength to Lakeside's expanding corridor of care by providing another choice for easy and convenient access to the best occupational services available for both employers and their employees.
According to Lakeside CEO, Fred Nussbaum, "Medero, which was recently acquired by California-based US Healthworks will no longer operate from this Tampa location. Lakeside intends to fill this void by accepting previous Medero clients who had become accustomed to this location over the years." Added Nussbaum, "Lakeside will honor any Medero contracts or previous pricing in order to make this transition as seamless as possible for those employer clients who do not want to miss a beat."
Lakeside's "one stop shop" provides a full scope of occupational medicine services at all of its locations including, work-related injury treatment, physical exams, drug and alcohol testing, vaccinations, x-rays, medical surveillance, plus a newly added service for client companies, Quick Check Urgent Care. Connie McMullen, Lakeside's VP Business Health Services said, "This is really great news for the community and for Lakeside's existing clients as it provides a convenient alternative Hillsborough county location to send employees." McMullen added that, "We would encourage those responsible for sourcing to stop in to meet the staff, take a tour and learn about the Lakeside Way. An appointment is never necessary."
Lakeside's new clinic address is 5406 Hoover Blvd, Suite 21, Tampa, Florida 33634. The phone number is (813) 248-8149. The fax number is (813) 884-7085.
