Cottage Health Urgent Care Opens Second Location in San Luis Obispo
Cottage Health opened its newest Cottage Urgent Care Center today in San Luis Obispo at the Foothill Plaza, 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 Cottage Urgent Care Center provides the community with convenient access from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., 365 days a year.
Located at 777 Foothill Road in San Luis Obispo, the new center is the second in the city. Other locations are now open in San Luis Obispo on Broad, Goleta on Hollister as well as on Calle Real, Oxnard on West Esplanade Drive, Santa Maria on North Broadway, Camarillo on Las Posas, Ventura on South Victoria, and in Buellton in Buellton Village. Additional locations will open soon in Santa Maria and Ventura.
Cottage providers staffing the Urgent Care Center 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 Buellton 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 also offers physical exams for student sports participation. Walk-ins are welcome and online appointments are available. Carside Covid-19 testing by appointment is offered at select locations with results in 45 minutes.
