CRH Healthcare Acquires Maryland Urgent Care Centers from ChoiceOne
ATLANTA – March 4, 2020 — CRH Healthcare (CRH), a quality- and patient-focused operator of urgent care centers in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia has acquired ChoiceOne Urgent Care’s interest in a Joint Venture with Calvert Health System (CHS). The Joint Venture, formed just over a year ago by ChoiceOne Urgent Care and CHS, operates three urgent care centers in Calvert County, Maryland. All three centers have established themselves as leaders in their communities with experienced providers and support staff serving the walk-in urgent care needs of patients in the area.
All of the current staff in each center will remain, while CRH will continue to focus the practices’ operations on CRH’s Mission, “to deliver the Perfect Patient Experience every time.”. The current staff, most who have come onboard since ChoiceOne partnered with the Calvert Health System in early 2019, have proven that their clinical and operational skills are well suited for focusing on the patient’s needs. It is this focus that has driven the strong performance improvement throughout 2019. Bill Miller, CRH Healthcare’s CEO, said, “We are excited to have the opportunity to work with the ChoiceOne Urgent Care team in all three centers. Their success in a short period of time creates a great base of operations for CRH to begin growing in Maryland.”
CRH will continue to partner with CHS to better serve the Calvert County community. This partnership allows ChoiceOne of Calvert and CHS to provide better coordinated care for patients. Additionally, since all the centers are open from 8AM to 8PM every day, they provide a more cost effective alternative to the emergency room for lower acuity diagnoses like the flu and colds, sprains, and lacerations to name a few. The centers also support CHS’s primary care physicians with after hours and weekend coverage when patients cannot wait. “Our top priority is the health care of our patients,” said CalvertHealth President and CEO Dean Teague. “The partnership with CRH will be seamless for our patients and will provide the care when and where our patients need it. We are delighted to have CRH Healthcare as a partner.”
Finally, since CRH purchased only three of the ChoiceOne Urgent Care centers in Maryland, it plans to rebrand the centers later this year. This will be a branding change only and will not change the Mission of the centers or the partnership with CHS.
