Hoag Expands Urgent Cares into More Communities

Broken bones and bad colds happen all over Orange County – but that doesn’t mean you should have to drive all over the county for the care you need.

Hoag is expanding its urgent care facilities into more communities to bring you access to some of the best physicians, specialists and medical technology right in your own neighborhood.

This past November, Hoag Urgent Care Aliso Viejo opened. In February, Hoag will open an urgent care in the Hoag Health Center Irvine – Sand Canyon, across the street from Hoag Hospital Irvine. And this spring, Hoag will open yet another urgent care center, this one at the new Los Olivos Marketplace in Irvine.

“Having urgent cares embedded in the community is an important piece of the health care puzzle,” said Felix Horng, M.D., medical director, Hoag Urgent Care. “Not all medical situations require an emergency room visit, but some issues simply can’t wait until your primary care doctor can see you. Urgent cares offer you a place to go to in your own community to serve your non-emergency needs.”

By the end of 2016, Hoag will operate several urgent care facilities conveniently located throughout Orange County, including in Anaheim Hills, Huntington Beach, Huntington Harbour, Irvine, Newport Beach, and Tustin. Many are located in shopping centers and other non-traditional locations to bring health and wellness options to people where they live and work.

At the upcoming Hoag Urgent Care, managed by Hoag Medical Group, at Los Olivos Marketplace in Irvine, for instance, primary care services will be offered including health screenings, annual exams and vaccinations, as well as treatment for colds, flu symptoms, fractures and other urgent care services for non-emergency conditions during the week with extended hours and on the weekends. So if you over-extend yourself at yoga, you can pop in next door to see a Hoag Medical Group doctor.

“We’re trying to improve access for patients in a manner that is a win-win – better service conveniently located near their home or office,” Dr. Horng said.

Most Hoag Urgent Care facilities are open on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on weekends from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
