HCA Healthcare announced the purchase of 24 MedSpring urgent care centers from Fresenius Medical Care. Later this year, the centers will be rebranded as CareNow Urgent Care. As part of HCA Healthcare, Medical City Healthcare has invested more than $1.7 billion over four years in access points including CareNow urgent care locations, infrastructure, and leading edge technology in North Texas.
As a result of this acquisition, CareNow will add eight centers to its 37 North Texas locations, strengthening Medical City Healthcare’s position as the largest urgent care provider in the region. In 2018, the system’s CareNow and Medical City Children’s Urgent Care clinics served approximately ten percent of the Dallas-Fort Worth population, with more than 770,000 consumer visits.
With the addition, CareNow will operate 160 urgent care centers across the country, reflecting HCA Healthcare’s vision to become the leading provider of urgent care services in the nation. Together, HCA Healthcare and CareNow offer consumers the expertise of a proven network of primary and urgent care centers combined with the broader resources of a large hospital system when a higher level of care is required. Other terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
