Atlanta-based urgent-care chain Immediate MedCare says it has entered into an agreement with the medical division of the Claxton Group, a property management group based in Kite, Ga., to own and operate 50 new care centers.
Immediate MedCare to develop 50 care centers
The urgent-care centers will be located primarily in the Southeast, according to a news release from Immediate MedCare. The centers will be planned in "pods" of four in each market area, allowing facilities to share some costs, staff and other resources, according to the release.
Immediate MedCare has branded itself as an upscale chain of centers, offering amenities such as cable television and free refreshments. The chain's facilities, which use electronic health records, also offer paperless billing and a patient portal.
According to the release, Immediate MedCare recently partnered with Chattanooga, Tenn.-based Capstone Properties in a similar deal to open 50 new facilities.
