established platform across Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Indian
River counties, becoming an integral part of the communities it serves
and developing a loyal patient base and extraordinary reputation.

Commenting on the new partnership, CEO Michael Holton said, "We are
excited to join Brentwood in this partnership. Brentwood's deep
expertise in growing multi-unit businesses, along with their ability to
bring exceptional resources to bear, will be great assets as we seek to
expand into new geographies while continuing to drive robust growth in
our core markets. Our team is committed to providing best-in-class care
for our patients and maintaining the outstanding reputation and customer
loyalty we share within our communities today."

Steve Moore, partner at Brentwood, commented, "MD Now Urgent Care has
become a trusted brand in the South Florida market by delivering high
quality care and an exceptional in-clinic experience to its loyal
patient base. The company's data-driven approach to operations,
strategic footprint, and investments in infrastructure have created an
extraordinary platform for future growth, through both de novo clinic
openings and strategic acquisitions."

Bill Barnum, partner at Brentwood, added, "We are thrilled to partner
with the MD Now Urgent Care leadership team and look forward to
supporting their patient-first focus, growing the Company's geographic
footprint rapidly, and building upon the tremendous success they have
achieved to date."
