NASHVILLE, TN – Urgent Care Group (UCG), a leading urgent care company based in Nashville, announces the acquisition of ParkMed Urgent Care near Maryville, TN. ParkMed Urgent Care is conveniently located at 117 Gill Street, Alcoa, TN 37701, next to Kroger. 

ParkMed Urgent Care has been providing urgent care, preventative care, and occupational health services to the greater Knoxville and Blount County communities since 1989.
