LANSING, Mich. -McLaren Greater Lansing and Lansing Urgent Care signed an affiliation agreement to improve access to faster care for patients in the Greater Lansing community. The agreement is not an acquisition or merger; from a legal and operational standpoint each provider will remain independent.

“This partnership represents the commitment of both organizations to providing our community with convenient, fast health care,” said Kirk Ray, president and CEO of McLaren Greater Lansing, and Drs. Terry Matthews, president and CEO of Lansing Urgent Care said in a joint statement. “Our services complement each other providing coordination from diagnostics, and doctor’s office care to urgent care visits, as well as emergency room trips.”

The new partnership will help patients seeking medical assistance find the appropriate level of care despite the cross-promotion of waiting times at Lansing Urgent Care and McLaren, with smoother follow- up care. The combination of diagnostics, lab, and imaging results will also provide a more seamless and timely access for patients in need of ongoing care. Finally, the partnership will provide McLaren and Lansing Urgent Care patients with improved coordination of care through improved access to medical records and post-patient care.

Lansing Urgent Care has eight locations in the Greater Lansing area and treats patients for illnesses and injuries that are not life -threatening, but still urgent, including viral and bacterial infections, fractures, wounds, hives, and allergic reactions. Lansing Urgent Care offers additional care services, including flu shots, vaccinations, x-rays, DOT, sports and school physicals, occupational medicine, on-site testing for the flu and COVID-19 with multiple prepackaged medicines on site.

McLaren Great Lansing streamlined its emergency room process to ensure the safest, most efficient, and coordinated delivery of health care. The level III emergency department is an acute care center with the capacity to diagnose, stabilize, and treat a wide variety of emergency and non-emergency conditions. The department is staffed by board-certified physicians and physician assistants, patient care associates, and registered nurses who specialize in emergency medicine.
