Source: Cottage Health
Cottage Health has opened a new Cottage Urgent Care Center in Goleta with the goal of providing complete care within 45 minutes. Access to care is an important priority in preventing a minor issue from becoming a more serious health concern, and the new Urgent Care Center will provide the community with convenient access from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., 365 days a year.
Located at 5652 Calle Real in Goleta, the new center is the fourth of 10 Cottage Urgent Care facilities and the second location in Goleta opening to welcome patients in the tri-county region from San Luis Obispo to Camarillo. Other locations are now open in Goleta in Hollister Village, Oxnard on West Esplanade Drive, and Santa Maria on North Broadway.
Cottage providers will staff the center and include a licensed nurse practitioner, a radiology technician and clinical concierges who are dedicated to providing the highest quality care that distinguishes Cottage Health.
Patients arriving at the Goleta Cottage Urgent Care will be welcomed with modern and comfortable amenities.
Conditions treated include cold and flu symptoms, scrapes and minor cuts, minor burns, sprains, allergies, earache, urinary infection, skin conditions, rash, poison oak and other minor ailments and injuries. Patients who require attention for more serious medical conditions may be referred to a local Emergency Department or physician.
Available services onsite include X-rays and lab services. The center will also offer physical exams for sports participation. Walk-ins are welcome and online appointments will be available.
Additional Cottage Urgent Care centers will be opening in coming months, including one in Camarillo on Las Posas Road and San Luis Obispo at Marigold Center.
