The entity was founded in 2011 as Five Star Urgent Care and was rebranded in 2018 “to better reflect our mission of offering the care you need with the convenience you crave for all non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses,” per the company’s website.

Currently, a WellNow Urgent Care is open in Olean, N.Y. Online check-ins and virtual visits are also an option listed on

The website notes centers are “open daily for walk-ins or check-ins, as early as 7 a.m. until as late as 11 p.m., with 24/7 virtual care – to help you and your family get well…well, now.”

In regard to the Bradford location, demolition of the building on site began Tuesday. The facility is expected to be complete and operational in 2022.

“Construction is expected to be completed in March, depending on weather conditions, and we anticipate a Spring opening,” Keller explained.
