Concentra announced today it has expanded its customer base and reach in the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) market with the acquisition of Metro Urgent Care (MUC), located in Frisco, Texas. The acquisition of this center expands Concentra’s geographic footprint to 15 centers in the DFW area.

Metro Urgent Care, located at 8756 Teel Parkway Suite 350, will now operate under the Concentra Urgent Care name. Practice owners and providers Phillip Disraeli, MD and Marc Bauer, MD, along with several medical staff members, providers, and non-medical personnel will join the Concentra organization, building on their long-standing relationships they have developed within the community. The newest Concentra Urgent Care location will offer urgent and occupational health and wellness services, as well as health education services to current and new patients and employers.

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 DFW. Metro Urgent Care has a proven record of service to the community, providing comprehensive medical treatment for the private patient community - a philosophy that parallels that of Concentra and ultimately results in tremendous benefits for patients and clients."

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. The company employs board-certified physicians, licensed therapists, occupational health specialists, and trained medical technicians to deliver exceptional heath care to patients across the country.
