Austin, TX — St. David's HealthCare announced today it will acquire nine FastMed Urgent Care centers in the Austin area and one MedPost Urgent Care center in San Marcos. The urgent care centers will be rebranded as St. David's CareNow Urgent Care clinics later this year.

“Upon completion, this acquisition will allow us to expand our geographic footprint, providing patients with convenient, quality care closer to home,” David Huffstutler, president and chief executive officer of St. David's HealthCare, said. “These urgent care clinics will also provide additional capacity to safely care for patients as Central Texas continues to grow, filling the gap between primary care physicians and hospital emergency rooms.”

The newly acquired urgent care clinics are located in the following areas:

3607 Manor Road (Austin)
1920 E. Riverside Drive (Austin)
3311 N. Lamar Blvd. (Austin)
717 Hwy. 71 West (Bastrop)
4506 Williams Drive (Georgetown)
135 Bunton Creek Road (Kyle)
2303 Ranch Road 620 S. (Lakeway)
14008 Shadowglen Blvd. (Manor)
3705 N. Main St., Suite 103 (Taylor)
155 Wonder World Drive (San Marcos)

St. David's CareNow Urgent Care currently has 15 locations in Central Texas. Once the acquisition of Fast Med and MedPost Urgent Care is complete, St. David's HealthCare will expand its footprint to 25 urgent care clinics in the region.

St. David's CareNow Urgent Care clinics offer quick care for non-emergent illnesses and injuries, such as sprains and strains, minor burns, coughs, sore throats and flu-like symptoms, as well as physicals, vaccinations, general diagnostics and check-ups.
