Piedmont Urgent Care by WellStreet Acquires PrimeCare Urgent Care in Cumming, Opens New Marietta Kennestone Location

Atlanta (June 30, 2021) – Piedmont Urgent Care by WellStreet acquired respected urgent care operator PrimeCare Urgent Care in Cumming and has opened a new location at Marietta Kennestone. This brings Piedmont Urgent Care by WellStreet’s network to 31 locations throughout metro Atlanta and beyond. In addition, a new location in Woodstock at 285 Ridgewalk Parkway will open July 23.

The former PrimeCare center is located at 2021 Market Place Boulevard, Cumming, and is open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. PrimeCare Urgent Care is an established healthcare leader in the community with experienced physicians and support staff serving the walk-in urgent care needs of patients in the area. The center will be rebranded. It will continue to operate under the PrimeCare brand and contracts during the transition.

“Piedmont Urgent Care by WellStreet is proud to expand our services into these communities,” said WellStreet CEO Lisa Mikkelsen. “We are excited to welcome the PrimeCare Urgent Care team and to add to our services in Cobb and Cherokee counties. We share the same commitment to providing compassionate and high-quality urgent care services to every patient, close to home.”

Piedmont Healthcare partnered with WellStreet Urgent Care in 2014. WellStreet’s providers are members of the Piedmont Clinic, which has more than 2,500 physician members. Piedmont Urgent Care offers patients shorter wait times and higher patient satisfaction. Piedmont Urgent Care also offers COVID-19 same-day PCR, rapid, and antibody testing at all locations.

Piedmont Urgent Care by WellStreet provides virtual visits and walk-in treatment for non-life-threatening illness and injury seven days a week, with extended hours nights and weekends, and are an excellent alternative to busy emergency departments and when traditional primary care offices are not open. These facilities also feature warm, welcoming environments, onsite digital X-ray capabilities and accept most major insurance plans, including Medicare and competitive self-pay rates.

"The team and I are excited to be growing as part of the Piedmont Urgent Care network,” said Kenneth M. Rice, M.D., owner of PrimeCare Urgent Care. “We are aligned in our priority to provide our patients with quality care and to treat them the way neighbors and friends expect in the Cumming community. The name will change but we will be here to provide exceptional care for our community just as we have done every day through the pandemic, and as we have for the last 14 years."

Piedmont Urgent Care visits can be utilized for common cold symptoms, such as cough, sore throat, nasal drainage, and ear pain. In addition to walk-in care for minor injuries and illnesses, Piedmont offers COVID-19 testing, vaccinations (non-COVID-19), physicals, workers’ compensation and employer services.

The Marietta Kennestone center is located at 789 Church Street, Suite 200, Marietta, Ga., 30060. It is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
