Salt Lake City, Utah. July 27, 2021 – CareNow® Urgent Care announces the purchase of five FirstMed urgent care centers in Utah. The clinics will be rebranded to CareNow® Urgent Care, which is operated by MountainStar Healthcare’s parent organization, HCA Healthcare, and represents one of the largest urgent care networks in the country.
“Like many of our communities across the country, we are experiencing significant growth here in Utah, and increasingly people want to be able to access health care services as conveniently as possible, on their time and closer to where they live and work,” said Greg Angle, HCA Healthcare’s MountainStar Healthcare division president. “The addition of these urgent care centers will complement our already robust health care network and help us provide more convenient access for our patients.”
Along with the acquisition of the five FirstMed urgent care centers, CareNow® Urgent Care will also open a new clinic location in South Jordan in August with plans for future urgent care centers in several Wasatch Front communities, including a location in Orem to open this fall.
