Immediate Care Clinic NextCare to Change Doctor’s Urgent Care Centre Name to NextCare Urgent Care in North Carolina

April 14, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Mesa, AZ, April 14, 2007 – NextCare Urgent Care ( announces that the name changes for nine of its North Carolina urgent care clinics will be completed by year end. Although the Doctor’s Urgent Care clinics had a solid reputation in the communities they served, NextCare wants the name of the centers to be as distinctive as the quality of service and care they provide. Over the past year, NextCare has begun transitioning the clinics to the NextCare name by co-branding the clinics utilizing both logos.

In 2005, NextCare expanded its national group practice with its acquisition of North Carolina based Doctor’s Urgent Care Centre. NextCare Urgent Care purchased nine free-standing North Carolina urgent care centers from Beverly Enterprises, Inc. This move made NextCare the world’s largest provider of urgent care services, treating more than 400,000 patients a year. To avoid confusion for patients and clients, NextCare has made signage changes simultaneously with name changes in local phonebooks for the North Carolina Urgent Care clinics. By year end, NextCare will fully integrate the NextCare Urgent Care name into these communities, providing a new name but the same great care.

The immediate care clinic concept is beginning to catch on nationwide in reaction to overuse of hospital emergency rooms by patients without life-threatening conditions. As needs grow, NextCare continues to build and acquire clinics. When acquiring previously existing businesses, NextCare evaluates the reputation of the clinic and name in the community. As in the case of the Doctor’s Urgent Care Centres, NextCare had the luxury of making the change over time due to the clinic’s long history of providing prompt, quality, same-day walk in medical care.
