About WellNow Urgent Care

WellNow Urgent Care is one of the fastest-growing providers of urgent medical care, telehealth and occupational medicine services in the United States, with more than 180 centers across Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

WellNow was founded as Five Star Urgent Care in 2012 by Dr. John Radford, who sought to provide communities with the kind of quality, walk-in care he saw was lacking when he served as an ER doctor. Patients quickly appreciated this new addition to their healthcare options, and the company continued to grow over the next few years.

In 2018, Five Star Urgent Care rebranded as WellNow Urgent Care to better reflect its mission of offering quick, convenient, and quality care for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses. As Wellnow Urgent Care has continued to open new facilities, the company has also grown through the strategic acquisitions of MASH Urgent Care in 2018, Hometown Urgent Care & Occupational Health in 2020, and Physicians Immediate Care in 2022.

WellNow’s organic growth, acquisitions, and partnerships, including its joint venture with St. Peter’s Health Partners, has contributed to making the company one of the top 10 urgent care providers in the U.S.

Regardless of how quickly WellNow grows, the company is committed to keeping its promise of offering exceptional healthcare in a convenient, caring atmosphere. WellNow is open daily for walk-ins or scheduled visits, as early as 7:00 a.m. until as late as 11:00 p.m., with 24/7 virtual care – to help you and your family get well…well, now.
