Cottage Health is opening its first Cottage Urgent Care Center in Goleta on June 30, with the goal of providing convenient and complete care within 30 minutes for patients who are age six months and older. Access to care is an important priority in preventing a minor issue from becoming a more serious health concern, and the new Urgent Care Centers will provide local residents with convenient access and expanded hours from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.

Located at Hollister Village, 7070 Hollister Ave. in Goleta, the center will be open 365 days a year, and is the first of 10 Cottage Urgent Care facilities to welcome patients in the tri-county region from San Luis Obispo to Camarillo. 

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 into a bright and inviting lobby area, with comfortable furnishings, contemporary decor, soothing colors, and gleaming wood floors.

Conditions treated include cold and flu symptoms, scrapes and minor cuts, minor burns, sprains, allergies, earache, urinary infection, skin complaints, foreign object in eye or nose, rash, poison ivy and other minor ailments and injuries. Patients who require attention for more serious medical conditions may be referred to a Cottage Emergency Department or a local 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.


On Saturday, June 27 at noon, Cottage Urgent Care Goleta will host a Virtual Open House event featuring interviews and a virtual “sneak peek” tour. Virtual attendees can enter to win a $100 Instacart gift card. Watch the online event at

Additional Cottage Urgent Care centers will be opening this summer, including at the Oxnard Esplanade and Santa Maria on North Broadway.

With the new Cottage Urgent Care and the Cottage CareNow virtual care service for online visits, patients can quickly receive care or an appropriate referral. Both of these services can connect patients to local physicians for follow-up and preventive care to improve overall health.

These services enable Cottage Health to serve the community in new ways and remain forward-looking in adapting to current and future healthcare needs.

They are opening one in Goleta on Tuesday and one on Calle Real between Fairview and Patterson later this year, and may open others in SB. They won't be competing with Sansum though, they will just be another, hopefully more affordable,
option for small ailments and will accept medi-cal. They plan to open at least a dozen locations between Camarillo and SLO in the next 2-3 years.

Santa ynez already has their ER which is basically an Urgent Care in that setting (small town, low patient count). That'd be a waste of resources to put an Urgent Care right next to an ER.

Urgent Care is for small stuff, sh I understand never go to the ER for a sinus infection! This will be a place for the small stuff, and school physicals and sprains. ER is for Emergencies and is a lot more expensive.
