FastMed Urgent Care Opening New Clinic in San Antonio

FastMed Urgent Care, the second largest and fastest growing independent urgent care organization in the U.S., will open its 16th clinic in Texas in San Antonio at 938 Wurzbach Parkway on May 6th.  The community is invited to the Grand Opening event on Saturday, May 7th, 9am-12pm to participate in the ribbon-cutting, take a clinic tour, meet the providers and enjoy food and activities. 

FastMed is partnering with other area businesses to make the event fun for the whole family.  Community partners include Chick-fil-A and Bahama Bucks, both of which will offer gift cards to attendees.  In addition, the urgent care’s mascot, FastMed Fred, will be there for pictures and selfies with attendees. 

FastMed Fred, the company’s mascot, was introduced in December 2015.

 In addition to constructing a new location in San Antonio, FastMed has been actively supporting the health of the community outside of its clinics.  FastMed is the “Safety Zone” sponsor of San Antonio’s 3rd Annual Health & Wellness Expo on June 18, 2016 and can be seen at some local sports fields on Saturdays providing sunblock, water and ice packs,
in support of youth sports and the spectators.   

“The San Antonio community has welcomed FastMed since we entered the market in 2015,” said Kyle A. Bohannon, President & Chief Executive Officer of FastMed.  “We are excited
to fulfill our commitment to support the health of San Antonio through this new clinic, as well as through community engagement across the Lone Star State.”

FastMed grew by more than 1,000% between 2011 and 2015, expanding from nine locations in North Carolina to more than 100 across Texas, Arizona and North Carolina.  Ranked
by Inc. 5000 as one of the nation's fastest-growing private companies, FastMed plans to more than double the number of clinics it has in Texas in 2016. 

 FastMed coordinates care with hospitals and community physicians to serve patients with urgent, non-life threatening medical conditions or injuries.  All FastMed Urgent Cares offer walk-in treatment seven days per week, with state-of-the-art equipment, integrated electronic medical records, digital x-rays and onsite lab services.  FastMed accepts all major insurance plans and offers self-pay patients the FastMed Discount Program.

FastMed Urgent Care holds the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for accreditation in health care quality and safety in ambulatory health care.  This designation provides FastMed patients higher quality care in customer service, clinical systems, health screening procedures and immunization processes.
