Saint Thomas and Urgent Team partner to expand affordable health services, create new patient entry points
Ascension Saint Thomas will partner with Urgent Team Family of Urgent Care & Walk-In Centers to rebrand care centers throughout Middle Tennessee, expanding affordable health services in the area and creating new opportunities for the hospital to attract patients.
The joint venture begins in December and will brand 14 urgent care locations with the Saint Thomas logo by early next year. Urgent Team, which owns more than 60 walk-in care facilities across the Southeast, will be managing partner, retaining control over the locations’ operations, said Tim Adams, CEO of Saint Thomas Health. The deal has been more than a year in the making, said Tom Dent, Urgent Team’s CEO.
