In 2016, Peachtree Immediate Care became a member of the Emory Healthcare Network, a clinically integrated network of employed and private-practice physicians focused on quality of services, enhanced care coordination and cost management. At that time, Peachtree Immediate Care had 16 locations in metro-Atlanta. Since then, the urgent care company has grown to over 50 locations across Atlanta and other nearby regions, and more locations are opening soon in underserved areas. Most recently, a new center opened in Lovejoy, a southern suburb of Atlanta.
"Peachtree Immediate Care's expansion has increased access points for patients who may need care for non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries closer to home," says Joon S. Lee, MD, CEO of Emory Healthcare. "By having a dedicated urgent care provider, we are able to offer patients more coordinated care and integration between our two organizations."
Owned by CRH Healthcare, which is based in Atlanta, Peachtree Immediate Care offers urgent care services for a variety of injuries and illnesses, and also provides minor surgical procedures, stitches, physicals, behavioral health, and employer paid services like workers compensation injuries and drug screenings. Lab and digital X-ray capabilities are also located at each site. Patients can check-in online at peachtreemed.com prior to arriving or walk-in to a clinic from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week to see a clinician.
"After seven successful years, we are pleased to continue our collaboration with the Emory Healthcare Network, and to continue growing our services and locations to meet the demands of more patients seeking urgent care," says Bill Miller, CEO of CRH Healthcare. "Our care teams provide convenient, high-quality urgent care throughout all of our locations in metro Atlanta and throughout Georgia."
"Peachtree Immediate Care has been and continues to be a valued member of the Emory Healthcare Network -- offering patients timely urgent care, leaving emergency departments more available for patients with critical needs, and supporting our primary care physicians when they are not available during nights and weekends," says Patrick Hammond, CEO of the Emory Healthcare Network.
