The community partner in wellness hosts ribbon cutting and flu shot giveaway, commits to keeping patients at the center of care

EUGENE, Ore. – October 21, 2019 – BestMed, a comprehensive provider of quality urgent care, primary care, physical therapy, and musculoskeletal services in Lane and Douglas Counties, announced its rebrand from the Eugene Urgent Care, Prime Care Partners and Atlas Physical Therapy.

Eugene, Roseburg, Thurston, Junction City and Pleasant Hill Urgent Care among other primary care and physical therapy clinics in Lane and Douglas counties are now known as BestMed. As a longstanding member of the community, the rebrand and name (nova, a new star is defined by the collaborative formation of a new entity that is stronger and brighter than its individual components) represents the company’s unified commitment to providing immediate access to outpatient medical care under one umbrella, including rural and underserved communities.

“As Lane and Douglas counties’ partner in health and wellness, we are excited to reaffirm BestMed’s partnership with our community,” said Bill Clendenen, BestMed Chief Executive Officer. “We know that this community has a choice in where they go to receive care and BestMed remains focused on a bright future in healthcare that revolves around what our people do best: caring for our patients.”

The rebrand has been marked by updated BestMed facility signs and updated marketing materials at all 14 clinic sites. Current and future patients can now easily identify BestMed clinics, reassuring they will receive quality, patient-focused medical care.

BestMed will host a ribbon cutting and open house for the entire community to celebrate the clinic’s brand unity and continued care practices. The clinic will also be providing free flu shots to the first 100 people. Details below:

WHY:  Recent studies show that young people (ages 18-34) are increasingly relying on “immediate care” services in non-emergency situations including urgent care clinics compared to older generations. BestMed understands the need for immediate access to medical care is more and more prevalent and is therefore committed to providing such services and options for patients to receive affordable and consistent healthcare.
