BUFFALO, NY – Today, WellNow Urgent CareSM – one of New York’s fastest growing urgent care providers, formerly known as Five Star Urgent Care – announced that it has expanded its operations by adding seven locations currently operated by MASH Urgent Care. Both WellNow and MASH provide treatment of non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses.
All MASH locations are now part of the WellNow Urgent Care network, which now includes all seven MASH locations and 21 WellNow – formerly Five Star Urgent Care – locations. The expansion represents more than 30 percent increase in the WellNow Urgent Care network locations, with presence in eight New York State counties. It also represents a purposeful, strategic initiative that allows WellNow Urgent Care to greater serve an unprecedented number of patients across the Buffalo community and Western New York.
“WellNow Urgent Care welcomes MASH Urgent Care to our family,” said John Radford, MD, Founder & President, WellNow Urgent Care. “MASH shares our commitment to put patients first and provide quick, convenient urgent medical care in areas where access to such care is limited. Their strong expertise and patient-centric values align seamlessly with ours, and our unified network represents the very best in urgent care delivery for patients across the region.”
From the end of December 2018 to January 2019, all MASH locations will rebrand to WellNow Urgent Care. Effective immediately, all MASH locations will provide the same patient-centered services in-line with those offered by WellNow. Patient service and support will continue, uninterrupted.
“The service and experience we provide our patients are second to none,” continued Radford. “Across our growing family, we are committed to every patient who has come to expect high quality, accessible urgent medical care. This is a significant and important time for our business and for those we serve. The future is bright, and we are embracing this exciting new chapter.”
