CHI Franciscan Health’s big urgent-care play


The emergency department of CHI Franciscan’s St. Francis Hospital, Federal Way, Wash.

Washington State’s CHI Franciscan Health has decided to expand its urgent-care network to “add more entry points for patients.” To do this, it has decided to partner with CityMD, a New York City area urgent-care operator.

Hospitals & Health Networks reports: “The partners plan to open about five locations in the Pacific Northwest in the next year and a half, with 50/50 ownership and CityMD managing the sites.” Here H&HNĀ speaks with CHI Franciscan CEO Ketul Patel to explain the partnership.
