We Care

We provide superior quality urgent care and occupational medicine services that exceeds expectations. Our commitment to patient satisfaction, convenient location, and caring staff are why more than 13,000 patients a year choose EPN Urgent Care.



Founded in November 2004, EPN Urgent Care is committed to providing the highest quality healthcare for residents and visitors of the communities of Naples, Immokalee, Estero and Golden Gate. Today, the practice is managed by TeamHealth, a national healthcare management organization headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee. TeamHealth staffs and manages urgent care facilities independently and with hospital partners throughout the United States.


As an organization, we are committed to becoming active, contributing members to the Naples community. Customer service is the essence of our organization; we recognize that the satisfaction and care of our patients takes precedence above all else. If you are visiting from out of town—for a weekend or for the season—we will coordinate your care with your hometown primary care physician.


The vast majority of our patients report that they are “very satisfied” with our services, and 99% say that they “would return again.” We create an environment and experience that exceeds expectations.
