A northwest Indiana-based chain of urgent care clinics is expanding its footprint in Chicago.
Midwest Express Clinic, which opened its first walk-in clinic in Munster in 2012, has acquired five urgent care facilities in five Chicago neighborhoods that were formerly owned by Baltimore-based MedSpring.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
With the expansion, Midwest Express now runs 17 locations in the two states with approximately 160 employees. The acquisition became official on January 1.
“We’re excited for our expansion into Chicago and hope to make these neighborhoods even stronger,” said Kaitlyn Steinberg, Midwest Express Clinic’s director of operations.
The urgent care chain also runs clinics in Hammond, Crown Point, Schererville and Merrillville.
“Our goal is to keep patients out of the ER and provide quality care at an affordable price. We have convenient hours and strive to get our patients in and out within a timely manner,” Steinberg said.
