The addition continues a buying spree over the last few years which has included doctors groups, clinics and a leading urgent care provider, MedExpress.

Coincidentally, MT Consulting brokered MedExpress' first deal - when the provider had only 7 centers.  The deal set the wheels in motion...MedExpress has since substantially increased its presence in the Mid-Atlantic, Southeast and Midwest.  According to UnitedHealth, the MedExpress expansion will continue in 2017.
