The joint venture starts with Washington Hospital’s existing urgent-care clinic in McMurray, Pa., and will add two more clinics within 18 months, according to the release. No financial terms were disclosed nor the ownership split in the joint venture.
Emergency Resource Management, a division of UPMC, will staff and manage the clinics.
