Tower Health, a healthcare system that includes Brandywine Hospital, and Premier Urgent Care have signed an asset purchase agreement for Tower Health to acquire Premier’s 19 urgent care locations that will expand Tower Health’s network of urgent care facilities throughout its service area.
When the transaction closes later this fall, Tower Health will become the largest provider of Urgent Care Services, based on weekly visits, in the Philadelphia region.
The 19 sites are located primarily in Tower Health’s southeast service area, including Chester, Montgomery, and Bucks counties, with one location in Berks County and one in Delaware.
As part of Tower Health’s strong, regional, integrated provider/payer system, the expanded network of urgent care centers will improve access to Tier 1 in-network, integrated, high-quality, high-value care.
“Tower Health is committed to taking care of our communities, providing the most appropriate care in the right place, at the right time,” said Clint Matthews, Tower Health’s CEO. “Our acquisition of Premier Urgent Care is a tremendous opportunity to quickly fill a need in our communities for access to walk-in care when a patient’s doctor is not available or when a consumer does not have a doctor.”
“We are extremely pleased to join with Tower Health to expand access to this important level of care,” said Edward Silverman, Premier Urgent Care’s CEO. “We share a common commitment to providing high quality care at the most appropriate level to our communities.”
