CareNow Urgent Care opened its first Los Robles Hospital-area clinic on May 30, 2017, in Westlake Village. CareNow Urgent Care is affiliated with Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center and part of HCA, one of the nation’s largest healthcare facility management companies.
The clinic, CareNow Urgent Care-Los Robles Hospital, is located on the corner of Westlake Blvd. and Thousand Oaks Blvd., and will be a part of a network of clinics in the Los Robles service area and in several other U.S. markets.
CareNow clinics are walk-ins, but they provide Web Check-In® at CareNow.com, an online preregistration process that triggers a call from CareNow staff to tell the patient when the provider will be ready to see them. Knowing when they should come in, and having pre-registered, the patient can wait anywhere and arrive just before the estimated time. This virtually eliminates wait time in the clinic waiting room.
“CareNow Urgent Care offers healthcare services to treat non-emergent medical problems that develop unexpectedly and require immediate attention,” said Tim Miller, President of HCA’s Urgent Care Services. “In so doing, we help fill the gap between primary care physicians and hospital emergency rooms.”
CareNow Urgent Care physicians and other care professionals will provide urgent care – quick care for non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries such as sprains and strains, minor burns, lacerations, sore throats and flu-like symptoms – as well as physicals, vaccinations and general diagnostic and treatment services. The clinics will have X-ray and lab services. CareNow Urgent Care clinics also provide occupational medicine services to local employers. These include examinations and treatment of injured workers in workers compensation cases, pre-employment screenings and drug tests.
CareNow Urgent Care clinics will be open seven days a week, with extended hours. For more information, visit CareNow.com.
