Mercy teams up with GoHealth to develop urgent care centers

Aurora, Mo.-based Mercy tapped GoHealth Urgent Care, an urgent care provider, for a new partnership that seeks to create a network of urgent care centers across the Midwest, the health system announced Jan. 3.

The joint venture targets patients in Missouri, Oklahoma and Arkansas to offer them greater access to urgent care through new technologies and patient access tools. Mercy and GoHealth plan to open more than 30 co-branded centers in the next two years.

Each Mercy-GoHealth center will be open seven days a week and offer extended evening hours, allow walk-in patients and feature online pre-registration and check-in. Mercy's EHR and its MyMercy patient portal will integrate with GoHealth's technologies to help caregivers across the system access patient data.

"Our partnership with GoHealth Urgent Care will help fulfill our mission to transform health in our communities," said Lynn Britton, Mercy's CEO. "We are dedicated to delivering integrated, consumer-focused care through innovative models that are convenient to where our patients live, work and play. This joint venture further demonstrates Mercy's leadership and focus on providing quality outcomes for the millions of patients who have entrusted us with their care."
