WellStar Health System increased its urgent care center by one-third in a single day, with the announcement that it bought five facilities from Medpost Urgent Care, all in the Atlanta area. WellStar now operates 15 urgent care locations. The system took advantage of the attention local media gave the deal by spelling out the services it (and most urgent care centers) are able to provide on a walk-in basis, including not only assessment and treatment for minor illness and injury for all ages, but also sports physicals and occupational medicine services (including workers’ comp services). Especially in these days when megamergers are the subject of headlines in major national media outlets, don’t let the opportunity to let your voice be heard among your neighbors (ie, prospective new patients) slip by when you’ve got news to share.
