TriStar Health, Brentwood, Tenn., has formed a joint venture with CareSpot to open as many as 15 urgent-care centers in the middle Tennessee area.
CareSpot, formerly known as Solantic, is a chain of urgent-care centers that Florida Gov. Rick Scott, a former HCA executive, founded in 2001 before selling the company to a private-equity firm in 2011.
The partnership allows CareSpot, also based in Brentwood, to expand beyond its core Florida operations, according to a news release. The company plans to hire about 100 new employees to serve the region.
