WORCESTER BUSINESS JOURNAL – CareWell Urgent Care on Wednesday announced its newest urgent care center will open at 757 Boston Post Road in Marlborough on Monday.
The center is CareWell’s 16th urgent care practice in New England, and the fourth to be affiliated with UMass Memorial Health Care. The UMass Memorial affiliation allows the health system to refer appropriate patients to nearby CareWell centers, reducing wait times and costs for illnesses and injuries that don’t need to be treated at the hospitals, according to CareWell.
The CareWell center is located 3.2 miles from UMass Memorial – Marlborough Hospital.
In a statement, UMass Memorial President and CEO Eric Dickson said its three other CareWell affiliates average more than 700 visits per month.
According to its website, five out of CareWell’s 16 centers in New England are located in Central Massachusetts — in Framingham, Northborough, two in Worcester and now one in Marlborough. A sixth site is scheduled to open in Fitchburg this fall.
