 KEY WEST, Fla., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- ImmuneCare of Key West, a innovative model for HIV-positive community-based care, will open its comprehensive, state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment facility on February 28. ImmuneCare of Key West is a partnership between ImmuneCare, Inc. and NMC Ventures, a subsidiary of National Medical Care, Inc., a unit of Boca Raton, Fla.-based W. R. Grace & Co. (NYSE: GRA).

 "Our experienced professional staff provides a complete array of medical, dietary, financial and social services to treat HIV-positive patients at one


community-based center," said Larry Siegel, M.D., medical director and founding physician of ImmuneCare of Key West.
 "We are strongly committed to providing accessible medical and counseling services to encourage early detection and treatment of HIV." Dr. Siegel, a nationally known AIDS author and lecturer who has treated AIDS patients since 1982, explained that early diagnosis is essential to lessening the effects HIV can have on the body's immune system.
