Acquisition Brings Additional Medical Centers, Convenient Health Care Services
ADDISON, Texas — September 16, 2011 — Concentra, a subsidiary of Humana Inc., announced today it has expanded its customer base and reach in the Atlanta market with the acquisition of NextCare, Inc.’s four urgent care medical centers.
Following completion of the transaction, Concentra now has 15 centers in the Atlanta market, with two NextCare medical centers in Kennesaw and Mableton operating as Concentra Urgent Care respectively. These centers offer occupational and urgent care services, as well as preventive, wellness, and health education services to current and new patients and employers. The operations of two other acquired NextCare medical centers were consolidated into Concentra Urgent Care’s existing centers in the area.
Ted Bucknam, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Concentra, said, "This is an excellent opportunity to further expand our service and medical expertise in Atlanta, and provide comprehensive medical treatment to more of the private patient community."
This acquisition supports Concentra’s extensive client base, its long history as the leading provider of occupational medicine to employees, and a growing demand for comprehensive health and wellness services. Concentra's affiliated physician groups employ board-certified physicians, licensed therapists, occupational health specialists, and trained medical technicians to deliver exceptional heath care to patients across the country.
Existing patients of NextCare will have increased access to quality and convenient health services through a network of Concentra Urgent Care locations in Atlanta. To find additional urgent care centers, use Concentra’s location finder.
