A new medical center providing culturally-relevant health care focused on patient convenience and personalized attention opened earlier this week.

Sanitas opened last year in Miami with three medical centers, and Tampa is the first expansion beyond South Florida. Sanitas Medical Center is an extension of the partnership between Organizacion Sanitas Internacional and GuideWell Mutual Holding Company.

"Sanitas is a transformative, innovative approach to health care. We are expanding into Tampa to address the needs of a growing diverse city," said Pat Geraghty, CEO of GuideWell and Florida Blue. "These medical centers offer a new way for the community to access and experience convenient, comprehensive, quality and culturally-relevant care."

Sanitas Medical Center addresses patients' day-to-day health care in one place with convenient hours and urgent care walk-ins that serve the needs of working families. Bilingual doctors and staff provide primary care, select specialty care, comprehensive urgent care, laboratory and diagnostic imaging services, as well as educational programs in wellness and disease management.

Sanitas is located in The Greenhouse Shops at 3617 W Hillsborough Ave. For more information, call (844) 655-4827, or visit
