A new urgent care center is open at 3160 E. Del Mar Blvd.
Operated by Huntington Medical Foundation, the center is expected to help alleviate long waits at Huntington Hospital’s emergency room, where more than 30 percent of patients have health concerns that are not emergencies.
The property, owned by the city of Pasadena and donated for the five-year pilot project, was chosen for its affordability, access to public transportation and proximity to a balanced mix of insured and uninsured users who would be likely to use the center.
Hours of operation at the 10,021-square-foot complex are 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week.
