First New Clinic Opening Since Company Entered Texas in December
Austin, TX, Feb. 26, 2016 – FastMed Urgent Care, the fastest-growing urgent care organization in the U.S., will open its 15th clinic in Texas in Lakeway at 2303 Ranch Road. Residents throughout Lakeway are invited to the Grand Opening event on March 1st to participate in the ribbon-cutting and clinic tours, as well as to meet the healthcare providers who will serve patients of all ages.
Lakeway will be the first new location FastMed has opened since entering Texas through the acquisition of Texan Urgent Care in December 2015. The company currently serves the greater Austin and San Antonio metropolitan areas, as well as Tomball and Waco.
“When FastMed entered the Texas market in December, we committed to adding more locations to support the health of residents across the state with our unique brand of healthcare,” said Kyle A. Bohannon, President & Chief Executive Officer of FastMed. “We are excited to fulfill that commitment with the opening of the first of many new FastMed locations throughout Texas in 2016.”
FastMed has grown 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.
