Ballad Health plans to close four urgent care clinics — in Johnson City, Abingdon, Kingsport and Greeneville — over the coming months, according to a statement released by the hospital system Saturday.
After the Mountain States Health Alliance and Wellmont Health System merger, Ballad Health now operates two urgent care clinics in each of those four cities, and the decision to consolidate its walk-in clinic services, according to the statement, was to “make better use of its resources.”
In Abingdon, Johnson City and the East Stone Drive, Kingsport, location, the former First Assist Urgent Care clinics will move to the former Wellmont Urgent Care locations.
In Greeneville, the former Wellmont Urgent Care Clinic will move to the former First Assist location on the Andrew Johnson Highway.
