    PIH Health Opens New Urgent Care Center in La Habra
     
    Whittier, Calif. (November 19, 2018) – PIH Health today, opened its La Habra Urgent Care Center located at 1400 S. Harbor Blvd (off of Imperial Hwy). Local community members who have an urgent medical need and cannot get in to see a doctor will now have access to high-quality medical services closer to home and their places of work.
     
    The La Habra Urgent Care Center will offer care for minor illnesses, such as earaches, persistent coughs or minor wounds that may need stitches. Sports physicals are also offered at this facility.
     
    “We’ve developed a network of high-quality urgent care centers that can help our patients when their regular doctor is unavailable,” said Roberto Madrid, MD, vice president, Medical Group Operations, PIH Health. “We want to make sure that our communities have access to a medical professional when they need it.”
     
    The La Habra facility joins four other PIH Health Urgent Care Centers in Montebello, Santa Fe Springs, Hacienda Heights and Whittier. The La Habra Urgent Care Center is open every day from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., including holidays. No appointment is necessary.

    “PIH Health Urgent Care Centers offer access to medical care in our communities with shorter wait times than an emergency room,” said Jaime Diaz MD, Chief Medical Officer for PIH Health Hospital - Downey. “In-house labs and X-rays are provided at each facility, so patients can get their tests done at the same location. Our Urgent Care Center physicians and staff work hand-in-hand with PIH Health’s hospitals in Whittier and Downey to help people feel better and recover faster.”
