Urgent Care Facilities Bring Quality Care to Your Backyard

A life-threatening emergency requires an emergency department; but for broken bones, bad colds and other aches and accidents, urgent care facilities can help get patients feeling better and back on their feet.

“People are realizing that urgent care embedded in the community is an important component of their health care,” said Felix Horng, M.D., medical director of Hoag Urgent Care. “Not all medical situations require an emergency room visit. At the same time, some issues shouldn’t wait until your primary care doctor can see you. Urgent care provides convenient access that serves the community’s medical needs.”

Hoag Urgent Care is open seven days a week caring for both adults and children with everything from coughs and colds to sprains, fractures, rashes and more.

However, Hoag Urgent Care goes far beyond caring for ill and injured patients; it is committed to expanding your access and making your medical care more convenient. Hoag continue to open new urgent care facilities throughout Orange County. Also, Hoag Urgent Care now saves patients time by offering online reservations to view wait times and schedule their urgent care visits to better fit their schedule.

“By bringing care to patients closer to where they are and at non-traditional times, we are not only improving access, we are ensuring better, more convenient care,” Dr. Horng said.

Hoag is also bringing more specialized diagnostic and treatment options to these urgent care facilities to ensure the highest level of care, no matter how far you are from a hospital. Most Hoag Urgent Care facilities are open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on weekends from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For added convenience, Hoag Urgent Care Irvine - Sand Canyon is now open weekdays from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
