Just what the Doctor Ordered: EmUrgentCare to Open Urgent Care Facility in Saugerties

Saugerties, NY – July 14, 2010 - EmUrgentCare, a professional medical facility equipped to treat urgent and nonurgent
illnesses and injuries for patients of all ages, announced today that they will be opening a second location
along the 9W corridor, in Saugerties, N.Y. just South of the Village, Ulster County.

EmUrgentCare will be investing between $1.2 - $1.3 million to purchase, renovate and equip the existing location at
2902 Route 9W. The building, previously intended as a self storage location, has been vacant for approximately eight
years. Additionally, EmUrgentCare will be creating new jobs in the area. “We are currently looking to fill eight
positions including Medical Providers, X-Ray Technologists, Billing Specialists and Front Desk Reception,” reports
Pamela Hassett, COO and Practice Manager of EmUrgentCare. “We are looking forward to working with the
outstanding and talented workforce in Ulster County.”

The response to the project from the community has been very positive and the EmUrgentCare team has been
impressed by the level of cooperation and excitement from Town and County Officials. Town of Saugerties
Supervisor Greg Helsmoortel recognized the value that EmUrgentCare is bringing to Saugerties and Ulster County,
“We are thrilled to have EmUrgentCare invest in and join our community,” said Helsmoortel. “Their presence will
have a great impact on our area by creating new jobs, rehabbing a vacant building and of course improving the
health and welfare of the people in our community.”

The new location will provide much needed medical care to Ulster County residents and visitors. EmUrgentCare
provides urgent care treatment for illnesses and injuries such as cuts and lacerations, sprains, bone fractures, colds
/flu, asthma, and ear and throat infections. Visits to urgent care centers are typically much less expensive and
quicker than visits to an emergency room and are covered by most insurance.

EmUrgentCare is working closely with the Ulster County Industrial Development Agency (UCIDA), the Ulster County
Economic Development Corporation (UCDC), and Town of Saugerties officials to make the project as strong as
possible. An application has been submitted for UCIDA incentives which will enable the project to move forward
with than an aggressive timeframe and the essential resources needed to provide critical medical services for local
business and to the regional community. Development plans include renovating an existing structure to the highest
standard possible and the implementation of technology upgrades essential to providing state-of-the-art care, thus
transforming a dormant location into a valued community asset. At the July UCIDA meeting, the members
expressed a desire that during the selection process EmUrgentCare prioritize companies that use local labor and
provide full health insurance benefits.

The Ulster County IDA has voted to approve a resolution setting a public hearing for EmUrgentCare’s application for
a sale-leaseback agreement that would provide property tax incentives along with mortgage tax and sales and use
tax exemptions. These standard benefits provide incentives for companies facing the large upfront costs of
establishing or expanding a business including property acquisition, building construction or renovation, equipment
purchases and other expenditures.

“EmUrgentCare has a great track record as a high quality service business with a strong community spirit,” said
Lance Matteson, CEO of the IDA and President of UCDC. “We look forward to doing our part to help them get
established in Ulster County.”

Founded in 2003, EmUrgentCare has provided treatment for over 100,000 patient visits and has been certified by
the Urgent Care Association of America. EmUrgentCare’s medical staff is trained in emergency medicine and
provides outstanding medical treatment to the entire family in a professional and welcoming environment.

EmUrgentCare has historically been supportive of the local community, strongly supporting many local causes and
not-for-profit groups. There will be a strong commitment to the greater Saugerties area both with financial support
and active participation with the local Chamber, Rotary and other essential community based organizations.

Additionally, EmUrgentCare provides support to local businesses. OccMedCare, EmUrgentCare’s Occupational
Medicine Division, offers customized programs for local businesses and community service organizations to help
them hire the right people through drug screening and fitness testing, treat injured workers promptly and
professionally, reduce workers compensation expense, get injured employees back to work promptly and ensure
compliance with governmental regulations.

“Our team is looking forward to partnering with the medical community within Ulster County,” said Dr. Stephen
Hassett, EmUrgentCare Principal and Chief Medical Officer. “While there is some overlap in services, EmUrgentCare
has always prided itself on partnering with primary care physicians, specialists and local hospitals to provide quality
patient care. Urgent Care centers are an essential component to the health of a community, especially now given
the strain on our hospital’s Emergency Departments and availability of primary care doctors.”
