Contest for a Free Onsite H1N1 Vaccination Clinic for Your Employees.at Your Place of Business.

 

U.S. HealthWorks wants to send our staff to your place of business to host an onsite H1N1 vaccination day and give up to 50 of your employees the H1N1 flu shot…all for free. It could be YOU!


Maybe you’re in public safety and your employees are exposed to lots of people who may have the virus, but budget cuts prohibit your agency from inoculating workers. 

 

Or maybe you have a retail business and see a lot of foot traffic with potential infected customers, but just haven’t had the time to schedule employees to get their shots.     

In order to enter, you must tell us why your office and your employees should win our FREE H1N1 FLU VACCINATION CONTEST, follow us on Twitter at @USHealthWorks, and Re-Tweet our contest at least once before the giveaway ends on Feb. 8, 2010.

Businesses within 20 miles of any of our medical centers with available vaccine are eligible to win the onsite vaccination clinic.  U.S. HealthWorks has centers in the following states: California, Washington, Arizona, Texas, Florida, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Indiana, Maine, North Carolina and Alaska.  A list of exact locations can be found here

 

U.S. HealthWorks Completes $175 Million Financing to Support Growth and Acquisition Strategy

It looks like the credit markets might just be thawing.  

We finalized an important deal last week with GE Capital – a $175 million financing package that will support our future growth and acquisition plans (we have already acquired 26 clinics in the last three years and announced acquisitions of five clinics in the last month).

The financing package, completed with the assistance of a lending group led by GE Capital, Healthcare Financial Services and Silver Point Finance, LLC, includes refinancing and new debt totaling $150 million, consisting of first and second secured credit facilities and a revolving line of credit. 

We also received an additional $25 million in new equity from three existing investors: Altaris Capital Partners, LLC; Three Arch Partners; and Daniel D. Crowley, our chairman and CEO.

“We are very pleased with the interest of investors and the financial community in our approach to delivering high quality, cost-effective health care,” said Mr. Crowley. “We were able to attract a top-tier group of lenders and put together an attractive package of loans on favorable terms in the midst of a difficult financing environment. We took this step so that we can accelerate our program of acquiring outpatient occupational health clinics.”

U.S. HealthWorks will now be able to provide quality, affordable health care to even more people throughout the country.

U.S. HealthWorks on Q13 Fox in Seattle Discussing Latest Flu News

National Influenza Vaccination Week Jan. 10 – 16, 2009

The holiday season events may be over, but this week is cause for another kind of important event – getting vaccinated for H1N1 influenza.

President Obama declared Jan. 10-16 National Influenza Vaccination Week, so U.S. HealthWorks is offering the H1N1 vaccine for only $15 per shot.

Although the media hype surrounding H1N1 has subsided, the risks still remain as we head into what is normally the peak flu season. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends vaccination as the first and most important step in protecting against the flu.

Not sure where to find a clinic near you where you can get the shot? Check out http://www.ushealthworks.com/FindCenter.html to find the closest U.S. HealthWorks medical center where you can get the H1N1 flu vaccination.

The Temptations’ Otis Williams Gets His H1N1 Shot

Otis Williams, the founder and original member of The Temptations, asked me come to his home in Los Angeles last month to give him the H1N1 vaccine.  It was great to meet him in person after listening to so many of his songs. 

In the pictures, you can see all the gold records on the wall behind us as I gave him the swine flu shot. 

So which star most needs to get the H1N1 shot next?
