Los Angeles, CA — Anaheim Urgent Care, LLC and affiliates (“UrgentMED” or the “Company”), a leading independent operator of urgent care clinics in Southern California, has received a substantial growth investment from Quilvest Capital Partners (“Quilvest”).

Founded in 2007 and headquartered in Los Angeles, California, UrgentMED provides a broad range of medical services including examinations, diagnostic testing, non-surgical procedures, occupational health, radiology, specialized care, physical therapy, and COVID-19 testing.

“We are thrilled to partner with Drs. Rastegar, Kokhab, and Bolourian,” said Jay Takefman, Partner and Co-head of Direct Private Equity at Quilvest. “UrgentMED has established itself as the leading independent urgent care network in Southern California. UrgentMED is ideally positioned to meet consumers’ and payors’ demands for convenient, affordable, and high-quality care, deploying its broad healthcare offering across its clinic footprint.
