“We remain grateful to our Colorado medical teams and staff for their dedicated efforts, as well as local residents for allowing us the opportunity to deliver care,” the company said.

MedExpress operated at 110 E. Boardwalk Drive in Fort Collins’ midtown area and at 601 Main St. in Longmont. Its other location was in Glendale, a southeast suburb of Denver.

The chain of care centers is a subsidiary of Optum Inc., a pharmacy benefits manager that is in turn owned by UnitedHealth Group Inc. (NYSE: UNH).
