Groton — Urgent Care of Connecticut on Thursday announced plans to open a clinic in Groton in February, just four months after opening its first clinic in eastern Connecticut in Norwich.
The Brookfield-based for-profit chain has seven other clinics throughout the state. The company said it foresees rapid expansion over the next 12 to 18 months as the need for urgent care services continues to grow.
“Based on the need for additional healthcare services in our state, we have decided to increase our presence in the eastern part of Connecticut,” Dr. R. Robert Rohatsch, chief executive officer and a founding member of Urgent Care of Connecticut, said in a news release. “We look forward to supporting the greater Groton community as an adjunct to primary care physicians on evenings, weekends, and holidays and as a convenient alternative to visiting the emergency room for any non-life threatening condition or illness.”
Urgent Care is “a veteran-friendly company,” he said, that welcomes the opportunity to serve the military and federal employees and their families in the Groton area.
The Groton urgent care center will be located at Groton Square, 220 Route 12, upon completion of building renovations.
