There are now 23 locations throughout Florida.

For thirty years, patients have come to trust Centra Care in their communities. As Central Florida’s only hospital affiliated urgent care provider, Centra Care will provide Riverview and Brandon residents with fast and convenient care for urgent, non-emergency medical needs. From coughs, colds, infections, allergies and flu, to broken bones and other orthopedic conditions, Centra Care’s team of board certified, adult and pediatric-trained doctors, will be available to families seven days a week – weekdays from 8 a.m.–8 p.m. and weekends from 8 a.m.–5 p.m.

Because time is valuable, Centra Care offers an online, no-wait reservations system to schedule to see a doctor when it’s convenient for patients. However, since Centra Care understands injuries and illnesses can happen at the most unexpected moments, walk-ins are always welcome. Centra Care also offers on-site labs and other immediate healthcare services such as X-rays, EKG, stitches, physicals, blood pressure testing, immunizations and more. Beyond walk-in urgent care, Centra Care offers employers and employees a wide variety of pre-employment and worker’s compensation services including prompt, affordable care for work injuries, employee physicals and drug and alcohol testing for public and private employers of all sizes.
