October 14, 2015 – Clayton, NC: FastMed Urgent Care, the fastest-growing urgent care organization in the U.S., has announced that the company will expand access to FastMed clinics in High Point, Laurinburg, Leland, Lenoir, Raleigh and Wilmington North Carolina by the end of 2015.
FastMed has grown by nearly 1,000% between 2011 and 2015, expanding access from nine locations in 2011 to become the largest urgent care network in North Carolina with 58 locations throughout the state and 93 locations nationally by the end of 2015. FastMed was recently ranked in the Inc. 5000 as one of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
“FastMed Urgent Care has grown significantly, particularly in communities in which patients have a need for personal, cost-effective and convenient medical care,” said Kyle A. Bohannon, President and Chief Executive Officer of FastMed. “Our highly trained and licensed clinicians, customer service teams and administrative experts demonstrate their dedication to the communities we serve by providing compassionate, quality care to our patients.”
FastMed coordinates care with hospitals and community physicians to serve patients with urgent, but non-life threatening, medical conditions or injuries. The new FastMed Urgent Care locations will offer walk-in treatment 365 days a year, with state-of-the-art equipment, integrated electronic medical records, digital x-rays and onsite lab services.
