Memorial Healthcare System has unveiled a direct-to-consumer tool, called MemorialDocNow, which provides consumers with the ability to connect 24/7 with a doctor and get diagnosed online for non-emergency cases quicker than if the patient was sitting in the emergency room seeking that same level of care. In some cases, the $49 fee to connect with MemorialDocNow may be even more affordable than a co-pay for ER or Urgent Care visits. 

 Nova Southeastern University (NSU) officially opened its Center for Collaborative Research (CCR), one of the largest and most advanced research facilities in Florida. 

As part of the ceremony, which was held September 21, 2016, NSU announced a gift from AutoNation to name NSU’s AutoNation Institute for Breast and Solid Tumor Cancer Research, located within the CCR. The Institute is focused on developing and advancing improved methods of prevention and treatment to ultimately eradicate cancer. The gift to name NSU’s AutoNation Institute brings the company’s cumulative giving to NSU to more than $10 million.
