Urgent Cares of America, a Clayton company that operates 14 health clinics in North Carolina and Arizona, has changed its name to FastMed Urgent Care.
The company announced the change in a release last week.
Urgent Cares of America Holdings was founded in 2001, and initially operated six urgent care clinics in the Triangle. It later added three more clinics in western North Carolina.
In November, UCA was acquired by The Comvest Group, a private healthcare investment firm.
In late February, the company acquired Tri-City Express Care, an Arizona company with five urgent care clinics in the Phoenix area.
FastMed hopes to build a national chain of urgent care clinics.
