MidAtlantic Urgent Care is closing after nearly nine years in business, citing a big financial hit from the pandemic.
The locally-owned clinic at 3301 Wilson Boulevard first opened in 2011. It is closing permanently at the end of May.
In an email to patients, the clinic said it cannot continue meeting its expenses while COVID-19 keeps patients away.
To Our Dear Patients,
It is with mixed emotions that we announce that we will be closing our urgent and primary care practice: MidAtlantic Urgent Care LLC at 3301 Wilson Blvd. effective May 31, 2020. We simply cannot sustain the financial loss as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It has been a great pleasure to assist you with your health care needs during the nine years that we have practiced in the Arlington, VA area.
During this pandemic, we are aware of the difficulty of renewing medications and finding a new practice; therefore, we will continue to use our phone mail, patient portal, and telehealth for communication.
We encourage you to stay within the Privia Medical Group system – this will allow easy access to your medical records which are shared within this impressive group of health care providers. Locally there is Pulmonary and Medical Associates, Arlington Primary Care, and Premier Primary Care Physicians – to name a few.
