PORTLAND– ConvenientMD, a New Hampshire chain of urgent care clinics, will open its first two Maine locations in the next two weeks.
One clinic will start seeing patients in downtown Westbrook on Thursday. The second will open in Portland’s Bayside neighborhood in two weeks. They will treat anything from an insect bite to broken bones, and the company says it’s goal is to get patients in and out the door in under an hour. ConvenientMD is the latest provider to offer the urgent care model in Maine.
Started in 2012, ConvenientMD is a private company that operates nine clinics in New Hampshire. This is their first expansion into another state.
Ben Collins, executive director of ConvenientMD, described Maine as “a natural fit” for what he called a one-stop solution for patients. “There was a very high demand for what we offer,” he said.
