WellStar Health System announced April 9 its acquisition of five Medpost Urgent Care facilities in the North Fulton Hospital and WellStar Atlanta Medical Center markets. WellStar now operates 15 urgent care locations.

“Our goal has always been to provide our patients and their families more options for care, when they need us, in their neighborhood,” said Dr. Rob Schreiner, WellStar executive vice president and president of WellStar Medical Group. “It’s a privilege to care for our communities.”

The new WellStar urgent care facilities are located at:

  • WellStar Urgent Care – Woodstock – 12201 GA 92, Woodstock
  • WellStar Urgent Care – Alpharetta – 5655 Atlanta Hwy., Alpharetta
  • WellStar Urgent Care – Crabapple – 12460 Crabapple Rd., Alpharetta
  • WellStar Urgent Care – Camp Creek – 3730 Carmia Drive SW, Atlanta
  • WellStar Urgent Care – Stockbridge – 3576 GA 138, Stockbridge

Each facility offers treatment for minor emergencies, illness and injuries, including laboratory and x-ray services for people of all ages. Additional offerings include sports physicals, occupational health services and worker’s compensation services.

“Urgent care centers serve a vital need for more immediate or after hours care when a patient cannot see their primary health care provider,” said Dr. Mark Salsberry, medical director of WellStar Urgent Care. “Sharing one chart through our electronic records system offers our providers and patients a seamless healthcare experience, connecting patient, provider, specialist and hospital around our patients’ needs.”

WellStar Urgent Care served 161,000 patients last year and looks forward to providing additional access points in the communities it serves.
