Walker, Fry and DeGrande Pen Law360 Article on Urgent Care Trends

September 5, 2017

With investors continuing to show strong interest in urgent care, Charlotte partner Bart Walker and Chicago associates Timothy Fry and Christopher DeGrande reviewed key trends, new models and recent regulatory changes in an Aug. 30 article for Law360.

The authors, all members of McGuireWoods’ healthcare practice, noted that the industry remains fragmented despite robust deal activity in the past 12 to 18 months. “We anticipate another wave of consolidation to occur entrenching key dominant regional players,” they wrote. “Like in other health care spaces, investors are likely to look to purchase add-on facilities to their current chains until they reach a critical size enabling a more lucrative exit from the market.”

The article, titled “Investing in Urgent Care: Trends and Developments to Watch,” also provides an overview of five new urgent care delivery models and recent regulatory changes in Florida, Illinois and New York.
