An urgent care center and pet hospital settle into New Tampa

Published Mar. 22, 2012

NEW TAMPA — For urgent medical issues, there's now another alternative to consider.

Anista New Tampa, an urgent care center, provides immediate treatment for people who want to avoid going to the emergency room or waiting for an appointment at a doctor's office, said Christi Hammes, director of marketing.

This area needed an urgent care center, Hammes said, and the facility's 2,000 square feet with five exam rooms, digital X-ray equipment and on-site laboratory should shorten a patient's stay.

"As our community continues to grow, the need for comprehensive medical services also increases," Hammes said. "We see Anista as a great opportunity to support the strong relationships with our area primary care physicians by providing after-hours support for their patients."

The center, which opened last fall, also provides medical aesthetic services, including Botox treatments and weight loss programs.

The Anista Corp. has two other franchise locations. Anista Westchase opened in the summer of 2011 at 10718 Countryway Blvd. in the Publix retail plaza. The other location is in Miami Beach.

Appointments are not necessary at Anista New Tampa, which is at 18101 Highwoods Preserve Parkway, Suite 120. Hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For information, call (813) 972-2900 or visit anistanewtampa.com.

Pet hospital comes to Cross Creek Blvd.

A veterinarian's office that moved from Cross Creek Boulevard last year paved the way for a new business, also for animals.

Affordable Pet Hospital opened its only Tampa Bay location last fall. The full-service veterinary clinic offers services including annual exams, dental cleanings, spay and neuter surgeries, pain management, emergency care, parasite prevention and control, hospice and euthanasia services, and boarding, said practice manager PJ Meredith.

The area was chosen because there weren't many lower-cost veterinary clinics around, Meredith said.

"People just need to know that we're a low-cost clinic," Meredith said.

Spay and neuter surgery is $75. Vaccine packages start at $65.

Appointments are not necessary, but they are recommended.

The hospital is at 10028 Cross Creek Blvd. Hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. For more information, call (813) 991-9898, send an email to affordablepet@gmail.com or visit newtampapet.com.
