The parent company of Medical City hospitals in Dallas-Fort Worth announced Thursday it has signed an agreement to purchase 41 urgent care centers in Texas.

HCA Healthcare, based in Nashville and owner of Medical City hospitals across the Metroplex, said the agreement will include 19 FastMed and 22 MedPost urgent cares in Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, Houston, and El Paso.

“The addition of these urgent care centers will improve access to care for patients in the Texas communities we serve,” Erol Akdamar, president of HCA Healthcare’s American Group said in a news release.

“It will provide convenient outpatient care options when and where they need it. It also will help seamlessly connect these patients to our broader healthcare network when a higher level of care or specialty service is needed.”

HCA Healthcare is one the leading healthcare providers in Texas. It already has 45 hospitals, 395 physician practices, and 92 urgent care centers.

This transaction is expected to close this summer.

Terms of the agreement with FirstMed were not disclosed.
