MINNEAPOLIS, MN, May 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire – Mitesco, Inc. (OTCQB: MITI), an operator of primary care clinics using a nurse practitioner model to deliver a wide range of traditional and non-traditional healthcare and wellness options, today announced it has signed a lease and acquired final building permits for its newest The Good ClinicTM located in Wayzata, Minnesota.
The Wayzata facility, the company’s seventh clinic in the Twin Cities, is scheduled to open this summer at The Promenade. This development located on the shores of Lake Minnetonka is a mixed-use concept that combines upscale condominiums, retail stores, restaurants, a hotel, and an assisted living community.
“In addition to the Wayzata location, the Company’s eighth and ninth clinics are under construction in Denver, Colorado. They are all planned to open this summer. These facilities, as well as the Company’s recently opened fourth, fifth and sixth Minneapolis-area clinics, are expected to match or exceed the growth in patient visits achieved at The Good Clinic’s first three Minneapolis-area locations,” said Mitesco Chief Executive Officer Larry Diamond.
“We’re very excited to continue our rapid expansion,” said Mr. Diamond. “Our stated goal is to have 50 clinics operating within the next three years, and today’s news moves us closer to achieving this goal. The new locations in Denver will mark our second major metropolitan market, which we believe is one of the fastest-growing areas nationwide. We also hope to open locations in Arizona and Florida in 2023 and 2024, which we expect will speed our growth further.”
According to Mr. Diamond, this growth will likely be fueled by The Good Clinic’s unique nurse practitioner model, which management believes will give Mitesco a potential 25 percent cost advantage over the typical physician-staffed clinic. The Good Clinic’s other featured attributes such as (1) offering patients a 40-minute average exam time; (2) locating clinics at the retail level in densely populated residential buildings; (3) offering same-day and next-day appointments; and (4) providing a wide range of both traditional and non-traditional health and wellness options, are expected to allow Mitesco to rapidly differentiate itself from its competitors and grow market share at a higher than anticipated rate.
Mr. Diamond added that, concerning Mitesco’s pending uplisting to Nasdaq, the Company has recently filed its updated S-1/A Securities Registration Statement and definitive proxy DEF 14C detailing shareholder actions that support the uplisting activity. This filing includes an update of executive ownership information as of December 31, 2021, consistent with the Company’s recent Form 10-K filing.
