Northside Hospital, Inc., has acquired ChoiceOne Urgent Care of Gwinnett and will partner with the Nashville-based Urgent Care Group to manage and operate three locations in the Gwinnett County, Georgia area.
Over the next several months, the centers will be rebranded as HealthChoice Urgent Care.
Fresenius Medical Care, which owns ChoiceOne, is leaving the urgent care business. ChoiceOne formerly partnered with the Gwinnett Medical Center, which merged with Northside Hospital in 2019.
Beginning this week, Urgent Care Group assumes day-to-day operational responsibility for the three Gwinnett County locations â€“ Hamilton Mill, Grayson, and Sugar Hill â€“ and is working with Northside Hospital and ChoiceOne throughout March to fully transition the centers. All ChoiceOne employees in the three facilities will remain and continue their clinical and patient work.
â€œThis partnership strengthens urgent care resources for the Gwinnett community, which continues to experience remarkable growth,â€ said Debbie Mitcham, president and CEO of the Northside Hospital Gwinnett campuses. â€œUrgent Care Groupâ€™s track record in the urgent care field is outstanding, and it fits quite well with Northsideâ€™s mission and patient care commitment.â€
David Maloney, founder and CEO of Urgent Care Group, has built an organization focused on greater operating efficiencies and enhanced clinical quality with urgent care centers throughout the Carolinas.
â€œWe are thrilled to be partnering with Northside Hospital in what is unquestionably one of the best health care regions in the country,â€ said David Maloney. â€œWith each additional associate, center, and partner, Urgent Care Group becomes better for the patients and communities we serve.â€
