Walk-In Clinic Opens At MCO

Travelers, tourists and airport staff who are not feeling well at Orlando International (MCO) now have a clinic to go to for care.

Solantic, which provides walk-in urgent care clinics across Florida, opened a location at MCO on Dec. 16, the first of its kind in a Florida airport.

 “There is nothing worse than traveling when you don’t feel well, and with 100,000 people coming in and out of the airport every day we feel this will be a very good location for Solantic,” says Karen Bowling, chief executive officer of Solantic. “Many travelers are coming to Orlando for vacation, so the sooner we can treat them, the quicker they can start enjoying their trip or getting back to what they want to do.”

The 1,100 sq. ft. clinic is in the B Terminal and is staffed by board-certified physicians. It will offer wellness services, occupational health and workers’ compensation services, as well as treatment for coughs, colds, sore throats, headaches, upset stomachs, cuts and sprains; it has lab services and X-ray machines on site. Monitors in the lobby will show remaining patient wait time; the clinic will also page visitors via cell phone when it’s their turn if they want to leave to go shop or eat.

Physician visits start at $89, with most prescriptions available on site for about $15. Solantic says it is contracted with most insurance plans. It is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
