Trending: ChristianaCare-GoHealth acquires urgent care centers from ExpressCare


ChristianaCare-GoHealth Urgent Care expanded its footprint in Delaware and entered Maryland with six new centers.

The new centers are located in Bear, Dover, Middletown, and Smyrna in Delaware and North East and Elkton in Maryland.

The locations were acquired from ExpressCare and are being updated based on the design and technology-driven care capabilities of the Christianacare-GoHealth Urgent Care model, a release stated.


The current ChristianaCare-GoHealth Urgent Care centers in Smyrna and Middletown are being relocated to the new, larger facilities at 300 Jimmy Drive in Smyrna and 749 Middletown Warrick Road in Middletown.

In addition, two centers in Cecil County operated by ChristianaCare in Perryville and on the Union Hospital campus are in the process of being closed so that patients can be cared for at the new Cecil County sites in Elkton, at 301 Pulaski Highway, and North East, at 101 NE Plaza.

The acquisition increases the total number of ChristianaCare-GoHealth Urgent Care centers to 11.

Under the partnership in Delaware and Maryland, electronic health records will be shared across the ChristianaCare network.
