HOUSTON, Nov. 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Memorial Hermann-GoHealth Urgent Care has tripled its footprint in the last 12 months and is now Greater Houston’s largest urgent and on-demand care network.
Monday, Memorial Hermann-GoHealth opened its 29th location as three Prime Urgent Care locations transitioned to the network. Memorial Hermann-GoHealth’s accelerated growth is a significant investment in bringing quality, connected care to all Houstonians, whether in a conveniently located neighborhood center or virtually throughout the state of Texas.
“After joining forces in 2022, Memorial Hermann-GoHealth has focused on expanding convenient access to high quality, affordable care in the Greater Houston area.

Memorial Hermann-GoHealth centers are open throughout Greater Houston, from Willis to Webster and from Katy to Kingwood. They provide community members a more affordable choice for high-quality and efficient care outside of higher-cost settings such as emergency rooms.
They also provide personalized and connected care through integrated electronic medical records and access to Memorial Hermann’s robust network, which regularly earns regional and national recognition for excellence in quality, safety, research and innovation.
“These centers provide Houston-area residents with an affordable option for safe and efficient health care close to home,” said Dr. Michael Bublewicz, chief medical officer of emergency medicine and urgent care at Memorial Hermann. “Memorial Hermann’s commitment to delivering high-quality care coupled with GoHealth’s advanced technology and expertise in urgent care provides patients of all ages with the best possible health care experience.”
