Expanding access to convenient care
WellNow Urgent Care℠ is here to help our patients get well. Founded as Five Star Urgent Care in 2011 by Dr. John Radford, we rebranded as WellNow Urgent Care in 2018 to better reflect our mission of offering the care you need with the convenience you crave for all non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses.
New center openings in New York and Illinois, along with the acquisitions of MASH Urgent Care locations in Western New York and Hometown Urgent Care in Ohio and Michigan, our footprint has expanded to 85+ locations. Our growth-focused model positions us as one of the fastest-growing providers of quality urgent, virtual, and occupational care – contributing to our Urgent Care Association accreditation, a designation earned by just 10% of urgent care facilities.
Our organic growth, acquisitions, and partnerships, like our joint venture with St. Peter’s Health Partners, has contributed to us being one of the top 10 urgent care providers in the U.S. Regardless of how fast we grow, we intend to keep our promise of being remarkable healthcare at its most convenient. Our centers are open daily for walk-ins or check-ins, as early as 7 am until as late as 11pm, with 24/7 virtual care – to help you and your family get well…well, now.

WellNow Urgent Care’s journey
The first Five Star Urgent Care opened in Big Flats, NY.
Five Star locations continued to expand, serving patients across New York State.
We reintroduced our company as WellNow Urgent Care and acquired MASH Urgent Care’s seven locations in Western New York.
WellNow entered into a joint venture with St. Peter’s Health Partners to provide urgent care services across the Albany area.
By the end of 2020, we opened more than 50 locations across New York and Illinois and continue looking for new opportunities to expand.
With the acquisition of Hometown Urgent Care, we grew overnight to 85+ locations, expanding our footprint to Ohio and Michigan.
