PIH Health opens 3 urgent care facilities

Whittier, Calif.-based PIH Health opened three urgent care facilities in California to help prevent emergency room overcrowding in California.

The three urgent care facilities are located in Whittier, Hacienda Heights and Santa Fe Springs. The facilities are open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

"Creating additional access to care for non-emergency patient visits helps decrease healthcare costs and wait times, and opens up vital emergency services for those with the greatest need," said Andrew Zwers, vice president of operations for PIH Health Physicians.

Two additional PIH Health urgent care facilities are expected to open in 2018 in Downy, Calif., and Montebello, Calif.
