FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Los Angeles, Calif. (AUGUST 16, 2016) – Today, Exer More Than Urgent Care opened a highly-anticipated urgent care facility at the corner of South Pacific Coast Highway and Knob Hill Road Avenue in Redondo Beach, Calif. By working in partnership with Providence Health & Services, Exer More Than Urgent Care is a next generation ER alternative which provides patients with an unparalleled healthcare experience in beautifully-designed and easy-to-access retail spaces in Southern California.
“We are honored to open our doors in Redondo Beach. Many of our physicians and medical teams live here in The South Bay, so we are humbled to serve the area with a new choice in healthcare when conditions become urgent or serious, but not-life-threatening,” said Dr. Cherlin Johnson, Exer’s Founder and President of the company’s medical corporation.
“Today in California, at least one-third of hospital emergency room visits are not true emergencies. At Exer More Than Urgent Care, we staff our clinics with Doctors and Mid-Level Providers who are trained in emergency medicine and we carefully design our facilities to be pristine and convenient. As a result, we’re able to treat approximately sixty percent of daily emergency room cases in our clinics with little-to-no waiting and at a fraction of the costs,” added Dr. Johnson.
With on-site laboratories, diagnostic equipment, laceration and splinting facilities, Exer More Than Urgent Care can treat patients with more services than a standard urgent care clinic. Designed for convenience with minimal 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, X-rays, prescriptions and corporate care.
To meet the growing demand for more Exer clinics, the Redondo Beach facility marks the sixth Exer More Than Urgent Care location across Southern California. Other locations currently include Calabasas, Northridge, Beverly Hills, Newbury Park and Sherman Oaks.
“Our Redondo Beach clinic wouldn’t be possible without the support of our incredible partners at Providence Health & Services, the country’s third largest not-for-profit health care system,” said Dr. Johnson.
“By working closely with Providence Health & Services, we are able to bring emergency medicine directly to more communities while helping to ease the strain on local emergency departments. Here in Redondo Beach, we’re proud to be working with Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center Torrance to help ease their ER and treat patients with urgent or serious conditions that are non-life-threatening” Dr. Johnson added.
“The opening of Exer today in Redondo Beach marks an exciting milestone as we continue to provide patients with access to quality and affordable healthcare options,” said Erik G. Wexler, Chief Executive, Providence St. Joseph Health, Southern California Region, Los Angeles. “We’re proud to support Exer and congratulate their medical teams and staff for opening their first clinic here in the South Bay.”
Exer More Than Urgent Care accepts most PPO and many HMO insurance plans. In addition Exer offers several affordable payment options for those without health insurance. Exer clinics are open daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and their last patients are registered at 8:30pm.
