Peachtree Immediate Care, the subsidiary of CRH Healthcare (CRH), has apparently completed purchasing Columbus-based St. Francis Urgent Care. The acquisition has been undertaken by Emory Healthcare Network’s urgent care partner in order to expand in the region so as to lend support to the collaboration between Emory Healthcare and St. Francis-Emory Healthcare Hospital.
Bill Miller, CEO & Co-founder, CRH, has been quoted to state that the firm is thrilled to be a part of the Columbus community and as the urgent care partner of the Emory Healthcare Network, it aims to bring forth a varied approach to serve patients spanning the Columbus urgent care center network. The company’s operational, systems, and clinical integration with Emory will be carried into this territory and will majorly be of help for patients and specialists, claims Miller.
As per sources familiar with the knowledge of the matter, Peachtree Immediate Care has also completed signing a lease for a new center in Columbus, near the St. Francis-Emory Healthcare Hospital.
The Peachtree Immediate Care family has welcomed the team members at the Columbus urgent care, who will continue to work there as usual. The most prominent urgent care patient information system platform of the U.S., which Peachtree uses at all of its locations, has now replaced the electronic medical record system at the Columbus urgent care. The center's signage as well as brand identity have been changed to reflect the new relationship.
Peachtree Immediate Care, for the record, has the largest network of urgent care centers across Georgia and Atlanta, and its network is now inclusive of 34 conveniently located urgent care centers. Two more are due to be opened in 2020 and two somewhere around early 2021.
Melody Trimble, CEO, St. Francis-Emory Healthcare, has been quoted to state that the firm proudly welcomes Peachtree Immediate Care in order to serve its community’s urgent care needs. Bringing cost-efficient, high quality, and effective care in Columbus and the Chattahoochee Valley validates the partnership St. Francis has with Emory at work, Trimble continued.
