I recently purchased Independence Urgent Care:

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Independence+Urgent+Care/@38.9307068,-84.5488766,17z/data=!3m1!4b1...

 

We would like to close this business listing and reopen it as Bluegrass Urgent Care - Independence.

Hi,

Do you have sign-in access to these listings? If you have a Google MyBusiness account it would be an easier route to login and change the business name, logos, descriptions, phone numbers, etc. Closing the old business would still leave it in the database and cause confusion. Try and proceed with signing in or claiming the business and transferring ownership to rebrand.

You should report the Independent Urgent Care listing as permanently closed through Google Maps.
This help article explains how to do it.

Create and verify a new business listing for Bluegrass Urgent Care, you should not add the name of the city to the business name if it is not part of the actual business name.
You can start the process on this URL
https://business.google.com/create
but I suggest that you read the guidelines to represent a business on Google to avoid common errors that could delay the verification of the business or affect its ranking negatively.
