Baylor Scott & White Health is adding 41 urgent care locations to its network in Texas through a partnership with NextCare Urgent Care.
Dallas-based Baylor Scott & White, which serves 3 million Texans as the state’s largest nonprofit health system, said Thursday it will jointly own the urgent care sites and expand into Houston and San Antonio. Other NextCare sites span the Dallas-Fort Worth and Austin metro areas, where Baylor Scott & White already has a physical presence.
The system operates 51 hospitals and more than 1,200 care locations, including five urgent care centers.
Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.
The organizations will work on branding and digital integration in the coming months, according to a Thursday news release.
Baylor Scott & White reported $1.05 billion in net income in the first nine months of fiscal 2023, compared with $680 million in the year-ago period.
Urgent care is becoming an increasingly competitive market in Texas. The NextCare deal follows an announcement from Nashville, Tennessee-based HCA Healthcare in May, outlining its plans to buy 19 FastMed urgent care locations and 22 MedPost centers this summer across multiple Texas markets, including Austin, Dallas, El Paso, Houston and San Antonio.
