Jennifer Ilgauskas saw how much her husband—former Cleveland Cavaliers center Zydrunas Ilgauskas—relied on doctors and physical therapists to overcome injuries as quickly and safely as possible in his playing days. Now she says that inspired her to put her Master’s degree in public health to use by opening an urgent care center with a physician partner. That operation has been going so well that the duo just opened a second urgent care business, Lakewood Urgent Care. It shares a Cleveland location with Rebound Physical Therapy, which Ilgauskas opened with a physical therapist as a partner. The new center also offers occupational medicine services, which the partners’ demographic research of the area showed was a much-needed offering. The ability to offer care to local residents and business with “shorter wait times and easier access” is what drew here to urgent care, she says.
