Southern Arizona Urgent Care continues its aggressive growth in the Tucson area with plans for a facility at Sam Hughes Place.

The company has leased 3,468 square feet at the corner of Campbell Avenue and Sixth Street from B33 Sam Hughes Place LLC.

It will be its ninth location in the Tucson area. Aaron LaPrise, with Picor, handled the transaction.

He said the company will take up about half of the space that was formerly a restaurant.

Southern Arizona Urgent Care’s founder and CEO, Dr. David Skinner, is a University of Arizona College of Medicine graduate. The first facility opened in Oro Valley in 2013. Last year, the company started its rapid expansion, adding eight more sites around the metro area.

The popularity of urgent-care centers has been “fueled by frustration over long waits in the emergency room … and a reduction in available primary care appointments,” The American Academy of Urgent Care Medicine says, citing a 20 percent growth in existing clinics in the past four years. “The public’s desire for immediate access to medical care has been the driving force behind this monumental growth.”
