— WellNow Urgent Care, one of the country’s fastest-growing urgent care providers, announced today that it has acquired Primary Urgent Care, a Central New York-based provider of urgent care, occupational medicine and telemedicine with two locations in Herkimer and Utica, New York. This acquisition follows a period of rapid growth for WellNow, which currently operates more than 120 locations across New York, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio. WellNow previously completed the strategic acquisitions of MASH Urgent Care in 2018 and Hometown Urgent Care & Occupational Health in 2020.

Starting Wednesday, June 1st, the former Primary Urgent Care locations at 1904 Genesee St., Utica, NY 13502 and 130 West Albany St., Herkimer, NY 13350 will begin operations as WellNow Urgent Care. Walk-ins are welcome, or patients can schedule a visit and complete registration online at the Utica or Herkimer centers seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

“We’re proud to be growing in Central New York and providing greater access to healthcare in the Herkimer and Utica communities,” said John Radford, M.D., President of WellNow Urgent Care. “Our team is committed to delivering an exceptional level of care and convenience, and we’re pleased to welcome patients and staff from Primary Urgent Care to the WellNow family.”

WellNow offers timely treatment for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses such as sprains, burns, lacerations, colds and allergies, as well as on-site X-rays, lab testing and physicals. COVID-19 PCR testing is available at all WellNow locations with 98% of results returning within 24 hours, and the rest returning within 48 hours. Occupational medicine services, including Workers’ Compensation assistance, pre-employment physicals, drug and alcohol testing and more are also available on a walk-in basis.
