Expansion of urgent care clinics part of an effort to reduce emergency room visits

A new urgent care clinic and an expanded one have opened within a month of each other in Glendale, and it’s no coincidence. They are part of a push to cut down on the number of costly trips to local emergency rooms.

Glendale Adventist Center recently started operating its fourth urgent care site in the community at 1975 Verdugo Blvd. in Montrose.

The under-served foothills were first targeted for a site specially designed for primary care and treatment of non-life threatening injuries in mind about two years ago, according to hospital officials.
