Urgent care provider Exer opened its seventh location and first in Santa Clarita last month. The new clinic is at 25548 The Old Road in Stevenson Ranch, near Constitution Ave.
The privately held company has outlets in Beverly Hills, Sherman Oaks, Northridge, Redondo Beach, Calabasas, and Newbury Park. An eighth location is under construction in Manhattan Beach.
Exer More Than Urgent Care can treat patients with more services than a standard urgent care clinic, according to its website. Designed to minimize wait times, Exer welcomes patients to walk-in or call ahead, and each clinic can provide on-the-spot treatments such as IV fluids, IV antibiotics, pediatric services, physical exams, DOT Physical Exams, immunizations, and corporate care.
Each clinic has an on-site emergency physician, and offers on-site X-ray, lab, pharmacy, splinting, laceration care, and diagnostics. The company said it facilities have the capabilities to stabilize and treat 80 percent of the cases seen daily in the local emergency room, with little-to-no waiting and for a fraction of the cost.
“Exer was founded by emergency medicine doctors with a brilliant vision to offer ER patients a new choice when their conditions become urgent or serious but not life-threatening,” said CEO Rob Mahan in a statement when joined the company last year. “As a father of three who’s spent nearly twenty years working in the healthcare sector, I know first-hand the benefits of having a high-quality ER alternative close to home. I believe everyone deserves that, and by helping to build on and advance Exer’s existing business strategy, I hope soon every community will have an Exer More Than Urgent Care just down the street.”
The clinic is open seven days a week from 9:00 A.M. to 9:00 P.M. It accepts most PPOs, most HMOs and has payment options for those without insurance.
