Healthcare Management Staff

SALVATORE F. CANNIZZARO
SALVATORE F. CANNIZZAROCEO of Immediate Care, President of SFC Enterprises, Inc
Background: Salvatore F. Cannizzaro is the Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Immediate Care Medical Walk-In Management, LLC.
At the young age of 24 years old, Sal founded Innovative Folding Carton Co., a printing business which is now owned by WestRock. After years of sustained growth and several relocations, Innovative purchased a building in South Plainfield, New Jersey. Sal managed the complete renovation and subsequent 35,000 square foot expansion of this building, ultimately creating a showcase 100,000 square foot, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. Innovative Folding Carton Co. grew to be a very profitable, highly-respected printer that employed 270 people; In 1998, the company was sold to a venture capital firm.
That same year, Sal founded SFC Enterprises, Inc., a real-estate and property development company. As the President of SFC, he is responsible for the overall management and development, as well as setting the company’s entrepreneurial vision and strategic direction.
Over the years, Sal made timely investments throughout the region and managed the development of these properties. He also managed the construction of his own substantial personal residence in exclusive Monmouth County, NJ. From residential developments on the Jersey shore to commercial properties in the Bronx, Staten Island, and New York City, Sal continues to grow the business while bringing value to local communities. Sal’s devotion to the community and to his businesses make him an ideal leader and entrepreneur in today’s emerging business world.
In 2012, Sal was one of the first in New Jersey to create and combine urgent care with primary care in the same location. He established his first management services company, providing non-clinical management and administrative services to primary and urgent care practices in Hazlet, NJ. The Immediate Care Walk-In Center of Hazlet hit the ground running, seeing over 12,000 patients in the first year. With these types of results, Sal saw this business opportunity in New Jersey. His ambition and vision were to open as many centers as possible. Having the real estate and construction background and support he needed, Sal knew establishing the centers was not the issue, but more so finding the right doctors.
Currently, Immediate Care provides employment to 121 team members including physicians, advance practice nurses, management professionals, radiology technologists, and medical assistants.
Immediate Care Medical Walk-In centers are located throughout New Jersey in seven locations, including Brick, Edison, Hazlet, Red Bank, Marlboro, Toms River, and East Windsor. Hazlet and Red Bank offer primary care services, while all of our centers offer x-ray services.
During this period of growth for Immediate Care, SFC Enterprises continues to expand its services. SFC is a commercial property development and management company with a niche in the healthcare market. In addition to the Medical Arts Complex in Marlboro, New Jersey, SFC has constructed a 25,000 square foot medical arts building in Freehold, New Jersey. This community health center is home to a strategic partnership amongst CentraState Healthcare System Inc., VNACJ, Inc. (Visiting Nurse Association Health Group), and Rutgers University’s Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. This medical arts building will serve as a federally qualified health center (FQHC). Further, SFC is adept at economically and efficiently building and fitting out medical facilities.
