ClearChoiceMD Urgent Care, SVHC Announce Partnership

NORTH ADAMS, MA—November 1, 2021— Southwestern Vermont Health Care (SVHC) and ClearChoiceMD Urgent Care are teaming up to bring new, high quality, convenient care options to the northern Berkshire community. The organizations have formed a joint venture to build and operate an urgent care center under the identity of SVHC Urgent Care powered by ClearChoiceMD. 

The new co-branded urgent care center, located at the Steven’s Plaza on 856 State Road in North Adam­s, MA, opened November 1, 2021. It is open 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. daily. No appointments are necessary.

This is the first urgent care center to serve North Adams and the surrounding communities. Up until now, people with urgent medical needs had to seek care in the emergency room or drive 20 miles to the nearest urgent care clinic. The partnership between ClearChoiceMD and SVHC will meet a need in this community.

“Partnering with ClearChoiceMD was an easy decision for us,” stated Stephen Majetich, Chief Financial Officer of Southwestern Vermont Health Care. “Not only are our missions aligned—to provide our communities accessible, affordable, compassionate, exceptional patient care; they are also the Northeast’s leader in developing physician-led urgent care centers focused on patient-centered care.”

“We are honored to be partnering with SVHC,” says ClearChoiceMD Urgent Care CEO Marcus Hampers, MD. “The people of northern Berkshire County deserve immediate and convenient access to quality, non-emergency medical care. We are united in our missions of providing compassionate, quality medical care to our communities. Working together allows us to offer alternative cost-effective options, at the highest quality of care consistent with what people are accustomed to receiving from SVHC.”

SVHC Urgent Care powered by ClearChoiceMD is equipped to treat all urgent non-life-threatening medical needs. Common illnesses and injuries treated include animal and insect bites and stings; asthma, allergies, and earaches; colds, flu, and respiratory illnesses; minor burns, rashes, cuts, and scrapes; nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea; broken bones, sprains, and strains; and concussions. Additionally, it offers physicals, COVID and other tests; vaccinations, and occupational health services. The state-of-the-art facility has on-site laboratory and x-ray services, as well as prescription medications you can take home, saving yourself a trip to the pharmacy.

ClearChoiceMD Urgent Care is based in New London, New Hampshire, and currently operates 14 walk-in centers across the region. This is the first ClearChoiceMD facility in Massachusetts.  Visit for additional details.
