FAIRFIELD COUNTY, CONN. — Fairfield County-based Urgent Care of Connecticut announced it will open its eighth clinic in the state early in 2014.
Urgent Care of Connecticut, which has clinics in Danbury, Norwalk and Ridgefield, announced the opening of a clinic in Groton. Other Urgent Care of Connecticut clinics are in Brookfield, Glastonbury, Newtown, Norwich, and Southbury.
The company foresees rapid expansion over the next 12 to 18 months as the need for urgent care services continues to grow across the country. A recent growth equity investment by Pulse Equity Partners and PineBridge Structured Capital Partners will make this possible.
"Based on the need for additional healthcare services in our state, we have decided to increase our presence in the eastern part of Connecticut,” said Dr. R. Robert Rohatsch, chief executive officer and a founding member of Urgent Care of Connecticut. “We look forward to supporting the greater Groton community as an adjunct to primary care physicians on evenings, weekends, and holidays and as a convenient alternative to visiting the emergency room for any non-life threatening condition or illness.”
The Groton Urgent Care center will be at Groton Square (220 Route 12) and is scheduled to open in February.
Urgent Care of Connecticut clinics are the only certified and accredited, physician-owned, independently operated urgent care facilities in Connecticut.
