Huntsville (Ala.) Hospital Health System is forming a joint venture partnership with Urgent Team Family of Urgent Care & Walk-In Centers to build and operate a network of urgent care centers in Alabama, according to AL.com

Urgent Team's clinics in the Alabama cities of Decatur, Florence, Huntsville, Muscle Shoals and  Madison will be rebranded as Huntsville Hospital Urgent Care Centers, effective Dec. 2.

The centers will be open seven days a week and offer treatments for conditions that are not life-threatening. 

"This exciting initiative will expand our nonemergency, walk-in services," Huntsville Hospital Health System COO Jeff Samz told AL.com. "The partnership helps fill the gap in consumer and employer health demand for a retail value experience for everyday healthcare needs."
