May 18, 2023 – HCA Healthcare announced it has signed an agreement to purchase 41 urgent care centers in Texas from FastMed.
Once completed, the transaction will expand significantly HCA Healthcare’s urgent care operations, which currently comprise 268 clinics. The agreement includes 19 FastMed and 22 MedPost urgent care centers in Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, Houston, and El Paso. It does not include FastMed’s urgent care locations outside of Texas.
“The addition of these urgent care centers will improve access to care for patients in the Texas communities we serve,” said Erol Akdamar, president of HCA Healthcare’s American Group. “It will provide convenient outpatient care options when and where they need it. It also will help seamlessly connect these patients to our broader healthcare network when a higher level of care or specialty service is needed.”
