MESA, Ariz., Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NextCare Urgent Care has acquired two new locations—one in Arizona and one in Texas—bringing the total number of clinics NextCare operates across the country to 69.
On Friday, Oct. 19, NextCare acquired a clinic in Cottonwood, Arizona—the company's first Arizona location north of Phoenix. The clinic is at 450 S. Willard St. in Cottonwood and will continue to be known as Verde Valley Urgent Care for a month until it is re-branded as NextCare in mid-November. It will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. The clinic will be closed on Sundays.
In addition, as of Tuesday, Oct. 23, NextCare has acquired its third clinic in the Houston area, joining two other NextCare clinics within 60 miles of the state's largest city. NextCare has additional Texas locations in the Austin area.
The newest clinic is at 10906 FM 1960 West in Houston. It will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
"This has been a very exciting time of growth for us," said John Julian, CEO of NextCare. "We look forward to providing a better option for those living in Houston and Arizona's Verde Valley who require medical care quickly but don't necessarily want the hassle and expense of the emergency room."
No appointments are necessary, and for those with high deductibles, gaps in coverage, or without health insurance, NextCare's ValueCare discount program can offer relief. The annual membership can save as much as 50 percent on most NextCare services.
NextCare Urgent Care is one of the nation's largest privately-owned providers of urgent care and occupational medical services, with an emphasis on our comprehensive approach called Full Circle Care that ensures patients experience the highest level of care from all of our providers, from reception to recovery.
NextCare operates 69 urgent care facilities in Arizona, Colorado, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas and Virginia.
