ExpressMed Urgent Care on path to becoming chain

ExpressMed is on an expansion push that could put it in markets outside of Central Ohio. ExpressMed Urgent Care grew to three sites from a single office in 2014 and parent HealthServe LLC has plans to double the nascent Central Ohio chain this year. Columbus-based HealthServe, which provides technology and consulting for administering physician practices, created ExpressMed with a Hilliard urgent care in 2009. The second site opened in Gahanna in October after renovation of a former bank branch and it bought a New Albany urgent care in December. “We’re working on a number of locations as we speak,” said Mike Bourland, CEO of both Columbus-based HealthServe and ExpressMed. Ultimately the goal is about six to eight in metro Columbus before considering whether to expand to other markets, he said. “Our means of growth are to open new units as well as buy existing entities as we did in New Albany,” said Richard Kurth, who joined ExpressMed in 2012 as partner and president. The company also asks its doctors to buy an equity stake, including Dr. David Sestak, founder and seller of the New Albany site.
