UCLA Health Opens in Montecito
By edhat staff
UC Los Angeles (UCLA) has opened a primary care health center on Coast Village Road in Montecito.
Located at 1187 Coast Village Road, the office currently specializes in internal medicine and plans to expand to specialty cardiology care later this year.
The office is currently open from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and patients are allowed to make appoints on their website.
Amanda Scott, MD and Dennis Hughes, MD, both internists, are the two doctors running the facility. Dr. Scott completed her Internal Medicine residency training at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. Before joining UCLA Health, she spent over six years at a tribal clinic in Santa Ynez, working for over three years there as the medical director.
Dr. Hughes completed his medical training at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, where he practiced for several years. He moved to San Francisco in 2007 and worked nearby on the peninsula before joining UCLA Health in 2020.
UCLA Health is also expected to open a cancer center focused on hematology and oncology with infusion in Santa Barbara early next year.
