LOS ANGELES, Aug. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Exer More Than Urgent Care opened a new clinic Wednesday at the corner of Fulton Avenue and Riverside Drive in Sherman Oaks, Calif., to offer more people access to high-quality healthcare that's affordable, convenient and staffed by Emergency Medicine doctors. The country's fastest-growing privately-owned ER alternative also unveiled plans to open three additional clinics in Southern California by the end of 2016, working with partner Providence Health & Services.
"We are absolutely thrilled to open here in Sherman Oaks and honored to offer folks here a new choice in healthcare for those whose conditions are urgent, or serious but not life-threatening," said Dr. Cherlin Johnson, CEO and Founder of Exer More Than Urgent Care.
"Exer More Than Urgent Care is committed to offering our patients an unparalleled combination of clinical expertise in pristine, modern environments that focus on care and convenience. To do this, we staff our clinics with ER doctors who work hand-in-hand with our expert midlevel practitioners and registered nurses to provide an outstanding healthcare experience in beautifully-designed and easy-to-access retail spaces," added Dr. Johnson.
With on-site laboratories, diagnostic equipment, laceration and splinting facilities, Exer More than Urgent Care is poised to offer patients more services than a standard urgent care clinic. Designed to see patients with little to no wait time, walk-in or call-ahead patients can receive services such as IV fluids, IV antibiotics, pediatric services, physical exams, DOT Physical Exams, immunizations, X-ray, on-site prescriptions and corporate care.
Exer More Than Urgent Care now operates clinics in Calabasas, Northridge, Beverly Hills, Newbury Park and Sherman Oaks, and Dr. Johnson says the demand for more Exer clinics in more locations is rapidly growing.
"In January we partnered with Providence Health & Services, which is the country's third largest not-for-profit health care system," said Dr. Johnson.
"Together, we are leading one mighty medical movement in health care to bring emergency medicine directly in to more communities while easing the strain on local Emergency Departments. This unprecedented partnership with Providence enables Exer to serve more communities where Providence already operates. With the openings of Sherman Oaks today, and our new clinics coming soon in Redondo Beach, Stevenson Ranch and Manhattan Beach, we are on track to double the size of our operations and look forward to serving more patients in more communities," Dr. Johnson added.
"Today's opening of Exer in Sherman Oaks is an exciting first for our new partnership," said Erik G. Wexler, Chief Executive, Providence St. Joseph Health, Southern California Region, Los Angeles.
"Our goal in teaming with Exer is to provide patients with a quality and affordable option to busy hospital Emergency Departments. Exer will allow us to offer a high level of care for conditions that are serious but not life-threatening," added Mr. Wexler.
Exer More Than Urgent Care accepts all 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. with little-to-no wait time and walk in or call ahead appointments are welcomed. (Last patient registered at 8:30pm daily).
