LOS ANGELES, July 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Exer More Than Urgent Care opened a newly-designed and highly-anticipated medical center on E. Del Mar Boulevard near Eaton Blanche Park in Pasadena, Calif.  Built and staffed by ER Doctors, Exer More Than Urgent Care is the ER alternative which offers patients more on-site medical services than most urgent care centers. 

Pasadena Mayor Terry Tornek, Dr. Brian Wilbur, Chief Medical Officer of Exer and Dr. Lori Morgan, President and CEO, Huntington Hospital cut the ribbon at new Exer Pasadena Clinic

“Our focus is simple, to help people feel better, faster, every day,” said Rob Mahan, Chief Executive Officer at Exer.

“Here in Pasadena, we’re honored to work with Huntington Hospital’s expert medical teams.  This beautiful facility extends the availability of emergency medicine into the community, and we’re proud to staff Exer Pasadena with the same ER Doctors who work in Huntington Hospital’s ER,” Mahan added. 

With on-site X-Ray, IV, Lab, Splinting, Laceration Rooms, Diagnostics and other on-site services at each location, Exer is designed for those with urgent or serious but non-life-threatening conditions.  Each facility is equipped to handle 80 percent of the cases daily in a local ER, for a fraction of the price and with minimal waiting. 

Mahan says nearly one-third of all ER visits in California are not considered to be true medical emergencies and that medical providers are looking for ways to help patients access quality care, reduce costs and minimize wait times.

“By working closely with local hospitals in the communities we serve, we are able to help ease the burden on local emergency departments while also increasing access to the care people want when they need it most,” said Mahan.

“Huntington Hospital’s collaboration with Exer Pasadena advances our vision of being a leader in creating community well-being by ensuring the right care, in the right place, at the right time,” said Dr. Lori Morgan, President and Chief Executive Officer at Huntington Hospital.  “We are so happy to welcome Exer Pasadena to our community.”

In addition to Pasadena, Exer operates centers in Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, Beverly Hills, Calabasas, Newbury Park, Northridge, Sherman Oaks and Stevenson Ranch.  Each facility is open seven days-a-week from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. with little-to-no waiting and last patients are registered daily at 8:30 p.m. Exer accepts most PPOs, most HMOs, Medicare and offers affordable payment options for those with minimal or no health insurance.
