ConvenientMD, a New Hampshire outpatient medical care chain, is building a new location on Route 9 in Westborough.

The 5,000-square-foot facility will replace what was once a Burger King at the intersection of Lyman Street, and will be joined by a Starbucks and a new Burger King. Permitting approval was given late last year.

ConvenientMD, which opened its first clinic in 2012, is building a facility with two procedure rooms and diagnostic labs to allow clinicians to draw and test blood on site, among other features. The company's locations, with a wider array of diagnostic services, often draw from a broader geographic area than other similar outpatient care facilities, with half traveling 15 or 20 minutes, CEO Max Puyanic said.

ConvenientMD locations can treat 70-80% of patients whose needs would otherwise require a trip to the emergency room, Puyanic said, which reduces costs for patients and insurers. Physicians at the chain have an average of 17 years of emergency room experience when they join the company, he said.

ConvenientMD has two Central Massachusetts locations, in Bellingham and Framingham. It has more than two dozen locations across much of Eastern Massachusetts, as well as Maine and New Hampshire, and for the last two years has been named among the fastest growing public companies in New Hampshire by Business NH Magazine.
