MIAMI, April 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On the heels of its nod by Entrepreneur Magazine for being one of the top franchise opportunities for 2014, OrthoNOW™, the nation's only orthopedic urgent care center franchise, expands this fall to include Weston, Florida. OrthoNOW's new franchisee has agreed to open several additional centers in Broward County in the next 2 to 3 years.
OrthoNOW, which opened its first location in Miami in 2010 and developed into a franchise program in 2013, is a network of specialized urgent care centers focused on treating the full range of orthopedic and sports medicine injuries on a walk-in basis. These injuries include anything related to the foot, ankle, knee, wrist, spine, and shoulder, as well as concussion related injuries.
"This is a significant milestone achieved as it validates the value proposition created for potential franchisees, patients, and/or surgeon owners," says Tom Ferro, President of OrthoNOW. "It also expands our foothold in the South Florida market with additional centers to open shortly thereafter that will significantly add to the brand identity that can be leveraged nationally," Ferro concluded.
The benefits of OrthoNOW far outweigh traditional medical services garnered at hospital emergency rooms because the services are far more affordable and most insurance, including Medicare, is accepted. Additionally, every patient is treated by an orthopedist physician or specialist at a fraction of the time that it would take at a hospital emergency room.
"For prospective investors, OrthoNOW offers a high ROI, turn-key solution with a comprehensive support system," says Dr. Alejandro Badia, Chief Medical Officer and CEO of OrthoNOW. "Having an all-in-one package that consists of coordinated, convenient, responsive, affordable and expert orthopedic urgent care presents tremendous value to not only patients, but also to driven entrepreneurs," Badia concludes.
