HCA Healthcare has purchased 24 MedSpring urgent care centers from Fresenius Medical Care, eight of which are in North Texas. They will rebranded as CareNow Urgent Care.
Medical City Healthcare is the largest provider of urgent care in North Texas, and CareNow will now have 45 locations in the region after the acquisition. In 2018, these locations served 10 percent of the Dallas-Fort Worth population with 770,000 patient visits. Nationwide, CareNow has 160 urgent care centers.
“This acquisition creates more access to the quality health care services our community needs, when and where they need them,” said Erol Akdamar, president of Medical City Healthcare via release. “We are proud to give North Texans more reasons to choose Medical City Healthcare as the destination of choice for healthcare excellence.”
“Like many of our communities across the country, Austin, Dallas and Houston are experiencing significant growth, and increasingly people want to be able to access healthcare services closer to where they live and work,” said Sam Hazen, HCA Healthcare’s chief executive officer via release. “The addition of these urgent care centers will complement our already robust healthcare networks and help us provide more convenient access for our patients.”
