FastMed Urgent Care announced the acquisition of El Dorado Urgent Care, based in Tucson, which will include rebranding and changing the name of the clinic to FastMed.
“With 16 locations in Tucson and Phoenix, FastMed is thoroughly committed to the neighborhoods we serve,” said FastMed President and Chief Operating Officer Kevin Blank. “We are very excited to expand our presence in Tucson with the excellent location and staff at El Dorado, and we look forward to bringing our special brand of urgent care.”
The 3,200-square-foot facility will have six exam rooms with a medical provider and medical staff providing urgent medical care, X-rays and occupational health services. By the November 3rd launch party, internal and external signs will have changed at the El Dorado location, as well as interior collateral, staff scrubs and other visible revisions. The website will also migrate to fastmed.com. Visitors can check-in online, get the latest in health tips and breaking health news and visit the medical library for even more answers to their health questions.
“Our name might be changing, but our patients can still count on the same great care and service; we’ll just be able to offer more of what we’ve done so well now that we are part of FastMed,” said Lane Tassin, M.D. and co-founder of El Dorado Urgent Care. “We are happy to become part of a team of FastMed’s caliber because they have the kind of patient-centered attitude matching that of the El Dorado team. They bring so many quality medical programs, as well as community outreach efforts through FastMed Cares, that we believe this will be a win-win relationship for our Tucson marketplace.”
As a FastMed clinic, El Dorado patients will enjoy extended hours from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. 365 days a year, urgent care, family medicine, flu shots, school/sports/work physicals, workers’ compensation injury care, on-site lab/X-ray/Rx and more, as well as the FastMed Discount Program for those without health coverage.
