Exer Urgent Care Expanding In LA, Opens Playa Vista Location

PLAYA VISTA, CA — Exer Urgent Care opened in Playa Vista this month at the former Playa Vista Medical Center.

The facility is the 17th location in Los Angeles County as the company continues expanding across the Westside, offering patients care they need, including recent COVID testing.

“Exer is excited to provide an increase of medical care in the Westside area,” the company said in a news release. “Exer provides the community a clinic built and staffed by ER doctors, offering patients more medical services than most urgent care centers, for a fraction of the cost.”

“We’re thrilled to expand into the Playa Vista area and we are looking forward to providing patients a place for care that’s convenient, high-quality, and affordable,” Exer CEO Rob Mahan said “Our staff is experienced and passionate about serving our community and with our new protocols in place during the pandemic, we’re proud to provide a safe and clean environment for patients to seek care.”

Hospitals and emergency rooms are at the front line of the pandemic, and in Southern California, nearly one-third of all visits to hospital emergency departments are not true emergencies, the company said.

The group hopes to offer patients the safe care they need in their community.

“We want to ensure our patients get the medical attention they need by providing an ER alternative with easy access to a medical provider while easing the strain on emergency rooms,” reiterated Mahan. “We strive to provide a place where patients can manage their health, especially during this time as healthcare systems are overburdened from COVID-19 related visits.”

The company describes itself as “Southern California’s fastest-growing ER alternative” and is staffed and built by ER doctors and medical professionals.

“With on-site x-ray, IV, laceration and diagnostics, Exer offers patients more comprehensive medical services than a typical urgent care,” the company said.

Exer also offers a telehealth platform, VirtualCare by Exer. This allows patients real-time access to a medical provider via video chat.

“Each Exer Urgent Care location is helping to ease the strain on local emergency departments and now offers flu shots and COVID-19 testing with next day results,” the company said. “The recently launched patient portal allows access to test results as well as discharge and other health information, to those who register.”

Exer Playa Vista is the 17th new clinic opening since the company began expanding in 2016. This location is available 7 days a week, Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. with the last patient seen at 5:45 p.m. and Saturday to Sunday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the last patient seen at 3:45 p.m.

The company has 17 locations across Southern California through Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, including Culver City, Camarillo, West Hills, Rolling Hills Estates, Westwood, La Cañada Flintridge, Pasadena, Canyon Country, Westlake Village, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, Calabasas, Newbury Park, Northridge, Sherman Oaks and Stevenson Ranch and now in Playa Vista.

Exer accepts most PPOs, most HMOs, Medicare and offers affordable payment options for those with minimal or no health insurance.
