LOS ANGELES, Aug. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Exer Urgent Care opened a new medical facility on Westwood Blvd. a block north of Olympic Blvd. in the community of Westwood in Los Angeles, Calif. Built and staffed by ER Doctors, Exer Urgent Care is the ER alternative which offers patients more on-site medical services than most urgent care centers.
"We give our thanks and gratitude to our staff, our friends and family who have helped us open our doors today in Westwood," said Rob Mahan, CEO at Exer.
"People from all communities here in California, tell us they want quality healthcare at an affordable cost with minimal waiting. However, across the state, nearly one-third of hospital visits are not considered to be true medical emergencies. Our teams at Exer are working to create convenient access to ER doctors in an affordable and caring environment. That's why we staff our centers with ER doctors who have years of experience stabilizing and treating patients in an emergency room environment," Mahan added.
With on-site X-Ray, IV, Lab, Splinting, Laceration Rooms, Diagnostics and other on-site services at each location, Exer is designed for those with urgent or serious but non-life-threatening conditions. Each facility is equipped to handle 80 percent of the cases seen daily in a local ER, for a fraction of the price and with minimal waiting.
Mahan says Exer is partnering with local hospitals to help reduce unnecessary visits and transports to local emergency rooms which is helping Californians save time and money.
"Less trips to the ER means people are getting the help they need, faster, which is creating savings for patients and the healthcare professionals who are treating them. As we continue to expand, we're able to help more people feel better, faster, while defining what an urgent care experience should be for all Californians," said Mahan.
In addition to Westwood, Exer operates clinics in La Cañada Flintridge, Pasadena, Canyon Country, Westlake Village, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, Beverly Hills, Calabasas, Newbury Park, Northridge, Sherman Oaks and Stevenson Ranch. Each facility is open seven days-a-week from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. with little-to-no waiting and last patients are registered daily at 8:30 p.m. Exer accepts most PPOs, most HMOs, Medicare and offers affordable payment options for those with minimal or no health insurance.
