Cottage Health opened its newest Cottage Urgent Care Center on Nov. 8 at 1298 Coast Village Road in Montecito, with the goal of providing complete care within 45 minutes.
Access to care is a priority in preventing a minor issue from becoming a more serious health concern, and the new Urgent Care Center provides the community with convenient access from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., 365 days a year.
Cottage Urgent Care in Montecito joins 14 other Cottage Urgent Care locations in Santa Barbara, Goleta, Buellton, Orcutt, Santa Maria, and San Luis Obispo, as well as Ventura, Oxnard, Camarillo, and Point Hueneme.
Cottage providers staffing the Urgent Care Center include a licensed advanced practice provider (nurse practitioner or physician assistant), a radiology technician, and clinical concierges who are dedicated to providing the highest quality care that distinguishes Cottage Health. Patients arriving at the Montecito site will find modern amenities.
Conditions treated include scrapes and minor cuts, minor burns, sprains, allergies, earache, urinary tract infection, skin conditions, rash, poison oak, cold and flu symptoms, Covid testing, 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 physical exams for student sports participation.
