HealthReach acquisition, marks second urgent care location in the state for NextCare
NextCare Urgent Care – the nation’s leading privately held provider of urgent care medicine and occupational health services – is expanding once again and adding another Wyoming location to its roster. On July 8th, the organization will officially acquire HealthReach in Cheyenne, Wyoming, which will bring the total number of NextCare urgent care clinics in the state to two and its total number of clinics nationally to 149.
HealthReach has been a staple of the Cheyenne community for 35 years and is the longest operating urgent care in the state of Wyoming. Over the last 35 years HealthReach has provided on demand patient care in Laramie County and built a strong foundation of patients and brilliant roster of healthcare providers. With the acquisition, NextCare hopes to build on the legacy of great patient care HealthReach is known for and continue to provide the same great care the community has come to know from our other clinic.
Maureen “Mo” Kougl, owner of HealthReach, has this to say about the acquisition, “I am pleased to turn over HealthReach to NextCare. After the passing of my husband and the founder of HealthReach, Dr. Don Kougl in 2011, I made the decision to continue to serve the residents of Laramie County always knowing that this day would arrive. Our decision in choosing NextCare was made with the residents of this community as our top priority. HealthReach has always focused on quality patient-centered care for our urgent care and occupational health customers. I have every confidence in NextCare’s ability to continue to provide the same level of care we have always provided to our community. The time has come for the Kougl family, after 46 years of services to this community in both emergency medicine and urgent care to pass the baton.”
The clinic is located at 2030 Blue Grass Circle, and will be open Monday-Friday from 7am-7pm, and Saturday-Sunday 8am-5:30pm. NextCare will take over the operation of the clinic on July 8, 2021.
NextCare CEO John Julian commented, “We are excited to expand our footprint in Wyoming and continue to serve the community of Cheyenne with affordable, accessible, convenient healthcare.”
The facility exhibits what you have come to know from NextCare and features a full suite of employee centered occupational health services, digital x-ray services, on-site laboratory, and accepts most insurance plans, including NextCare’s Medical Discount programs.
Online check-in, as many patients have come to know and appreciate, will still be available through the NextCare website. This helps patients skip the waiting room and ensure their visit is as quick and efficient as possible.
