About Care One
Family owned and operated, Care One of Florida was founded in 2003 by local Nurse Practitioners Anthony and Stacie Laviano to provide competent, timely and cost effective urgent care for patients in the Tri County area (Citrus, Hernando and Pasco Counties).
If you or your loved ones are in need of non-emergent, urgent care, our staff of expertly-trained, board-certified physicians and nurse practitioners are ready to provide you with top-quality, compassionate care that won't ail your budget.
We offer several convenient medical clinic locations: in Brooksville at 12220 Cortez Blvd., in Port Richey at 10435 US Hwy. 19, and in Spring Hill at 11115 Countyline Rd. All are expertly outfitted with state-of-the-art medical equipment and an electronic medical records program so you can be confident that your medical care is top-notch and that your sensitive information is tightly guarded.
Because an urgent care situation can be distressing, our Brooksville, Port Richey, and Spring Hill urgent care clinics are designed to provide a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere for patients and you'll be treated much faster than you can typically expect by visiting an emergency room. In fact, the dramatic growth of the urgent care medical clinic industry is, in part, driven by long waits and increasingly burdensome costs associated with overuse of America's hospital emergency rooms, which truly are designed for more traumatic or life-threatening injuries and illnesses.
Care One's urgent care medical clinics provide a competent, controlled, cost effective alternative to emergency department care and are fully equipped and staffed to address a full host of urgent care and family care health needs including vaccinations and health screenings required for school attendance and occupational health. To help keep you healthy year-round, we take a proactive, preventative approach to healthcare via multiple health and wellness programs tailored to your unique lifestyle and needs. These include:
- Age specific health screens
- Disease specific health screens
- Familial / genetic risk factor analysis
- Lifestyle risk factor analysis
- Lifestyle modification plans
- Nutrition guidance
- Exercise guidance
- Smoking cessation guidance
- Weight Loss guidance
- Annual basic physicals
Care One of Florida accepts most major insurance provider including Aetna, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Cigna, Great West, Humana, Medicaid, Medicare, United Healthcare PCP, Universal and Wellcare/Staywell.
