Hartford HealthCare and GoHealth Urgent Care are joining forces to open urgent care centers in central and eastern Connecticut, the two announced Thursday.

The two companies plan to open up to 15 co-branded centers within the first 18 months that they do business together, beginning this spring.

Each Hartford HealthCare-GoHealth Urgent Care center will operate seven days a week with extended evening hours, and will welcome walk-in patients and allow online check-in.

The centers' exam rooms will provide charting on a wide screen, mobile x-ray equipment and electronic medical records that can be accessed by caregivers across the Hartford HealthCare network, the companies said.

One of the largest urgent care companies in the U.S., GoHealth operates nearly 60 urgent care centers in New York and Portland, Ore., metropolitan areas, as well as in the San Francisco Bay area.
