Company History

The Urgent Team Family of Urgent Care & Walk-in Centers were created to provide quality, affordable and convenient walk-in medical service in suburban neighborhoods, rural towns and mid-size cities across the Southeast.

The company was founded in August 2011 by experienced healthcare executives and professional private investors who saw a need for: healthcare centers to be open at night and on weekends; a less expensive alternative to an Emergency Room visit; more convenient and timely access than a primary care physician’s office that typically requires an advanced appointment.

Our Centers provide compassionate and quality walk-in medical care for non-life or limb-threatening injuries or illnesses, as well as occupational health services. From sprains and broken bones to common illnesses that arise, the ailments that interrupt our lives don’t happen on a schedule. Similarly, when workplace health needs exist (from DOT physicals, employment health assessments or workplace injuries), we are here to meet those needs. 

Based in Nashville, TN, the Urgent Team Family of Urgent Care & Walk-in Centers delivers care through four distinct brands: Urgent Team, Physicians Care, Sherwood Urgent Care and Baptist Health Urgent Care). By 2019, the Urgent Team Family of Centers will have almost 50 centers throughout Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas and Mississippi – and the growth continues!
