Apollo Beach now has access to world-class, convenient medical care for minor illnesses and injuries at the newest TGH Urgent Care powered by Fast Track. The new clinic, located at 6182 N. U.S. Hwy. 41 in Apollo Beach, opened last month to serve patients seven days a week from 8 a.m.-8 p.m.
“Providing easy access to health care close to home in our surrounding communities is part of our vision to be the safest and most innovative hospital in America. Convenient locations and options help Tampa General Hospital advance health care options for local neighborhoods,” said Tampa General Hospital Executive Vice President and Chief Ambulatory Care Officer Adam Smith. “Should a patient need further care, we can help connect them with the services of our academic medical center that has 83 outpatient locations.”
TGH Urgent Care powered by Fast Track is the first urgent care center in the Tampa Bay area to achieve accreditation through the Urgent Care Association (UCA).

The new clinic offers efficient, high-quality urgent care with five exam rooms in a patient-friendly environment performed by board-certified primary care providers.
Common tests, check-ups and procedures offered at TGH Urgent Care powered by Fast Track include school and sports physicals, X-rays and certain laboratory tests.
