Progress on the QuikTrip-owned MedWise Urgent Care is coming along nicely at the Rock Creek Shopping Center, located on Taft Ave near Main Street.
MedWise currently has locations open in Tulsa, Wagoner, Coweta, and Broken Arrow, but is expanding into several new territories, including Tulsa, and one is under construction in nearby Prattville, as well.
Patrick Aguilar, the chief medical officer for the newly-formed MedWise, said that it made sense for the Tulsa-based convenience store change to enter the medical sector.
“It’s a brand that has worked really hard on developing a reputation for fast, friendly customer service in a clean and pleasant environment,” Aguilar told Public Radio Tulsa last October.
According to Aguilar, the company plans to open at least 15 new locations in the Tulsa area within two years. “We have an understanding of how people move between businesses … we can use the lessons we’ve learned by deciding where to put QuikTrips,” Aguilar said.
“That recognition of a sense that we know how people move about the community is something that we think offers a level of convenience and accessibility that is really essential to the brand of MedWise,” he said.
