Premier Urgent Care is now Tower Health Urgent Care
Tower Health has completed the acquisition of Premier Urgent Care, officially forming a new business line, "Tower Health Urgent Care." The acquisition is effective Saturday, December 1, 2018. As part of Tower Health's strong, regional, integrated provider/payer system, the expansion of urgent care centers will improve access to Tier 1 in-network walk-in care.
Tower Health's acquisition of the 19 urgent care locations increases the system's urgent care facilities throughout its service area to 22 sites. Tower Health is now the largest provider of urgent care services, based on weekly visits, in the metropolitan Philadelphia area. The 19 new sites are located primarily in Tower Health's southeast service area, including Chester, Montgomery and Bucks County, with one location in Berks County and one in Hockessin, Delaware. Each of the new facilities is open 365 days a year and offers patients access to advanced, comprehensive care from 9 a.m. to 9.pm.
Walk-in care is available at any of the new urgent care locations for a variety of conditions including: colds, flu, allergies, asthma, sore throat, sports injuries, minor lacerations, sprains, earaches and ear infections, and preventive services such as physicals, vaccines, and occupational health. Urgent Care is an essential link in Tower Health's continuum of care providing convenient access if a patient lacks a regular primary care doctor, or if the patient's regular provider is not available.
Premier's reputation as a high-quality organization with experienced providers and staff aligns with Tower Health's commitment to providing integrated, high-quality, high-value care.
"The addition of the Urgent Care facilities in the Tower Health communities ensures we can provide the most appropriate care in the right place, at the right time," said Clint Matthews, President and CEO, Tower Health. "Providing additional access to skilled and compassionate healthcare providers to our patients helps us continue to deliver on our promise of 'Advancing Health. Transforming Lives.'"
