SmartCare Urgent Care, an urgent care and primary care provider operating six clinical sites in Atlanta and Athens, is affiliating with the Emory Healthcare Network, Emory Healthcare’s clinically integrated network of more than 2,000 employed and private practice physicians. This partnership enhances Emory Healthcare’s geographical reach and provides the network with ability to offer convenient, compassionate, on-demand care for non-life threatening health concerns.

As part of the Emory Healthcare Network, SmartCare Urgent Care will be able to link into Emory Healthcare’s electronic medical record system to provide seamless care and transition for patients. If needed, patients who are referred to specialists within the Emory Healthcare Network for more complex treatment will already have a health record in the system.

SmartCare Urgent Care offers patients an exceptional customer experience efficiently with modern, upscale amenities such as an advanced queuing system that allows customers to choose and hold an appointment time that is convenient for them. “SmartCare Urgent Care is delighted to affiliate with Emory Healthcare and pair our strengths to maintain the health and wellness of all those we serve,” says Kavita Kotte, MD, co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of SmartCare Urgent Care. “This clinical affiliation broadens our ability to afford our patients easy access to Emory specialists and streamline their continuity of care when necessary.”

SmartCare Urgent Care offers an array of medical services to patients whether those services are needed on-demand or through scheduled appointments. “Our centers offer patients access to advanced care for any serious, non-life threatening emergency. We treat all injuries, illnesses, and time-sensitive ailments and have on-site x-ray and lab capabilities,” says Zobair Nagamia, MD, Chief Operating Officer of SmartCare Urgent Care.

SmartCare Urgent Care serves nearly 75,000 patients annually and will continue to expand its existing footprint with additional sites in active development.
