Clayton, NC – February 18, 2013 – FastMed Urgent Care will open two new clinics this weekend in Phoenix, AZ and Fayetteville (Hope Mills), NC, giving the company a record total of 50 clinics. FastMed started with 14 clinics in April 2011 when the company relaunched itself as FastMed. Expansion continued in 2011 and 2012, adding 36 new urgent care locations in communities throughout Arizona and North Carolina.
“While our growth is exciting, carrying out our mission of providing quality, affordable care in more convenient neighborhood locations is really what it’s all about,” said Kevin L. Blank, FastMed Urgent Care’s President & Chief Operating Officer. “Now more than ever, we are able to build relationships in these communities and truly be the go-to for patients in need of outstanding medical care.”
Not only is FastMed Urgent Care growing in number of locations, the company has grown within its existing clinics – through the addition of programs and offerings including sports medicine, acne treatment, WellCare for seniors, occupational health for employers and their employees, and more. When FastMed opens a new clinic, members of the local community are invited for a grand opening celebration, where patients can see the clinic, meet the staff and learn about the various services that FastMed offers.
“Opening new clinics is only one part of the bigger picture,” said Blank. “We always have an eye toward excellence within our existing locations, looking for ways to expand our offerings and improve the overall care experience for each and every patient. Growth at this pace requires us to stay true to our mission of putting the patient first with quality, convenient care backed by excellent customer service.”
FastMed patients enjoy extended hours 365 days a year, urgent care, family medicine, flu shots, school/sports/work physicals, workers’ compensation injury care, on-site lab, X-ray and pharmacy, and more, as well as the FastMed Savings Plan for those without health insurance coverage.
