Cottage Health is opening its second Cottage Urgent Care Center on July 28 in Oxnard, 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 access 8 a.m.-8 p.m., 365 days a year.

Located at the Esplanade Shopping Center, 360 W. Esplanade Drive, the center is the second of 10 Cottage Urgent Care facilities opening 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 dedicated to providing the highest quality care that distinguishes Cottage Health. Patients arriving at the Oxnard Cottage Urgent Care will find 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.

Cottage Urgent Care Oxnard will host a virtual open house event at noon Saturday, July 25, featuring interviews and a virtual tour. Virtual attendees can enter to win a $100 Instacart gift card. Watch the online event at www.cottagehealth.org/urgent-care/.

Additional Cottage Urgent Care centers will be opening this summer and fall, including in Santa Maria on North Broadway. For more information, visit www.cottagehealth.org/urgent-care/.

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 services can connect patients to local physicians for follow-up and preventive care to improve overall health.
