Hospital system buys urgent care chain with location in Hockessin


Tower Health and Premier Urgent Car have signed an asset purchase agreement for Tower Health to acquire Premier’s 19  urgent care locations that will expand Tower Health’s network throughout its service area.

Terms were not announced. 

When the transaction closes later this fall, Tower Health will become the largest provider of urgent care services, based on weekly visits, in the Philadelphia area.

The transaction will include an urgent care center in Hockessin and in nearby Kennett Square, PA. Tower has hospitals in Jennersville and in Coatesville, PA., north, and west of Hockessin.

“Tower Health is committed to taking care of our communities, providing the most appropriate care in the right place, at the right time,” said Clint Matthews,  CEO, Tower Health. “Our acquisition of Premier Urgent Care is a tremendous opportunity to quickly fill a need in our communities for access to walk-in care when a patient’s doctor is not available or when a consumer does not have a doctor.”
