The Health Express Team

Health Express Urgent Care is a fast growing urgent care and occupational health system in Northeast Ohio with locations in North Ridgeville, Avon Lake, Mayfield Heights, and Parma Ohio. We are actively hiring healthcare professionals.

Our History

Our owners, M. Hamed, M.D. and A. Ali, M.D. founded Health Express Urgent Care and Occupational Health Centers in 2014 in Parma, OH after observing a need for affordable, reliable and accessible health care in Northeast Ohio. They noticed if a patient was unable to see their primary doctor, their only choice was often the emergency room.

As our patients noticed our commitment to serving outstanding, affordable, and top rated medical care, we became committed to serving more communities. As our owners are loyal to serving the Northeast Ohio community, we opened our Avon Lake, OH facility in 2017 and facilities in Mayfield Heights, OH and North Ridgeville, OH in 2019. We also began offering virtual care (telemedicine) visits, available daily from the convenience of your own home.

Our Vision

At Health Express, we promise empathetic, top quality care from licensed providers for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses. There’s a reason we put “Express” in our name – we are mindful of your busy schedule and understand the last thing you want to do is wait. Health Express Urgent Care fills the need for local immediate medical care, provides all forms of family medicine, and occupational medicine for employers.

We offer online check-in, online scheduling for book ahead visits, and accept walk-in patients. All of our centers have x-ray machines and we offer access to patient-accessible electronic records.

For your convenience, we accept most insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid and Workers Comp. For patients that are self-pay, we offer a clear, affordable way to manage health care costs for you and your family. Health Express is happy to offer you convenience, comprehensive care, safety, and affordability with every visit – come experience the difference.
