UC San Diego Health to open at least 10 primary care sites

UC San Diego Health will open more than 10 express and primary care sites over the next four years to increase patient access to providers.

The primary care clinics will be in several California cities along public transportation lines, including Encinitas, La Jolla, East Lake, Carlsbad and Poway.

"Good health begins with good locally based primary care. Our goal is to bring new primary care options to multiple neighborhood locations across San Diego," said Patty Maysent, CEO of UC San Diego Health. "The plan is to offer same-day services through an array of easy-to-access clinics, including urgent and express care, so that patients do not have to travel more than 15 minutes in any direction for care."

UC San Diego Health will open its 57,000-square-foot comprehensive health center in Rancho Bernardo, Calif. on Oct. 15. The new site — part of its primary care strategy — will offer primary care, women's health, occupational medicine, behavioral health, urgent care, blood draws, imaging and a pharmacy. Beginning next year, university specialists will be available to see patients at the site.
