Adventist HealthCare Urgent Care

CRH Healthcare and Adventist HealthCare Partner on Urgent Care Centers in Maryland

CRH Healthcare enters Montgomery County Maryland market in partnership with Adventist HealthCare by acquiring 3 Urgent Care centers

Gaithersburg, MD & Atlanta, GA – CRH Healthcare (CRH), a quality- and patient-focused operator of urgent care centers in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and Maryland has partnered with Adventist HealthCare (AHC) and acquired their three Urgent Care centers in Germantown, Rockville and Laurel, Maryland. All three centers have established themselves as leaders in their communities with experienced providers and support staff serving the walk-in urgent care needs of patients in the area as well as employers’ occupational healthcare needs.  The centers will be operated by CRH under its Maryland brand, Patriot Urgent Care, and will be co-branded with “an Adventist HealthCare Partner”. The partnership begins Feb. 1, 2022 and will include having the centers join the One Health Quality Alliance, Adventists HealthCare’s clinically integrated network, which focuses on the coordination and quality of care across the healthcare continuum.

The current staff at each center will remain along with their dedication to serving the community, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. These centers will join the other five Patriot Urgent Care centers in Maryland focusing on CRH’s Mission, "to deliver the Perfect Patient Experience every time." It is this commitment to every patient that has helped drive the success of CRH’s growing network of over 70 centers since its founding in 2012. Bill Miller, CRH Healthcare's CEO and co-founder, said, "We are excited to have the opportunity to work with Adventist HealthCare and their urgent care team in all three centers. Their success creates a great base of operations for CRH in Montgomery County and continues our growth throughout Maryland."

Beyond these initial urgent care centers, CRH will continue to partner with AHC to better serve the Maryland community with additional centers planned in the coming years. This partnership allows both AHC and CRH to provide better coordinated care for patients. Additionally, since all Patriot Urgent Care centers are open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., they provide a more cost-effective alternative to the emergency room for lower acuity diagnoses like the flu and colds, sprains, lacerations and other non-emergency care. The centers also support AHC's primary care physicians with after hours and weekend coverage when patients need immediate after-hours medical attention. "One of our top priorities is improving access to quality care throughout our community," said Terry Forde, president and CEO of Adventist HealthCare. "The partnership with CRH will be seamless for our patients and will continue our focus on providing care when and where the community needs it.  We are delighted to have CRH Healthcare as a partner."
