Urgent Care of Soldotna:
Providing High-Quality and Accessible Health Care
Jeoff Lanfear and Shane Udelhoven have teamed up to create the most exciting startup business in medicine on the Kenai Peninsula. With their combined education, experience, and passions, they opened the doors to Urgent Care of Soldotna in August 2017, and now proudly serve the Kenai Peninsula as its first true urgent care center.
What sets Urgent Care of Soldotna apart in the community is that it’s the only clinic on the Kenai where someone can walk in and be treated immediately by a provider. With a central location, patients can quickly and efficiently access the medical care they need, when they need it most, with a knowledgeable and friendly staff to assist them.
Jeoff and Shane worked with the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) in Soldotna to ensure they launched their business seamlessly and with great success. Of their entrepreneurial journey, they shared, “The assistance we received from the Alaska SBDC was critical to the start of our urgent care center. Cliff guided us through creating financial projections and writing a detailed business plan, which enabled us to obtain an SBA loan to get started. We are very satisfied with the assistance provided by the SBDC and would highly recommend others to start with them.”
Of their success, business advisor Cliff Cochran proudly shared, “Jeoff and Shane have done a phenomenal job starting Urgent Care of Soldotna from scratch. Their extensive medical knowledge and experience, along with impressive determination, has brought Kenai Peninsula residents a much needed urgent care facility. I expect they’ll grow to become one of the more successful medical practices in Soldotna.”
