Exer More Than Urgent Care team alongside Canyon Country community and officials.

Exer More Than Urgent Care opened a new medical center on Soledad Canyon Road near CA-14 Exit 11 on Wednesday, as part of a partnership with Facey Medical Group to expand medical services in the Santa Clarita Valley. With ten locations in Southern California, Exer staffs each facility it operates with ER Doctors and provides patients with more comprehensive medical services than typical urgent care centers.

“We’re absolutely delighted to open our doors here in Canyon Country,” said Rob Mahan, Exer’s Chief Executive Officer. “We are passionate about helping people feel better, faster and we’re committed to expanding our medical services to more communities across Southern California. Thanks to our incredible partners at Facey Medical Group, our expert medical teams at Exer Canyon Country will serve this rapidly-developing community with an ER alternative that’s intended for when conditions become urgent, or serious, but non-life threatening,” Mahan added. 

Exer Canyon Country is located on-site at a new, 37,000-square-foot medical office building which houses Facey’s primary care physicians, specialists and an expanded eye care center. Facey is an affiliate of Providence Health & Services, which for three years has partnered with Exer to expand in areas served by Providence hospitals and physician clinics.

“For more than three decades, Facey has been serving the Santa Clarita Valley and continuing to find ways to expand care in this ever-growing community,” said Teresa David, Facey’s chief operating officer.

“Working together with Exer More Than Urgent Care and opening this new center is wonderful for the people of Canyon Country and the surrounding area,” David added.

In California, nearly one-third of all ER visits are not considered to be true medical emergencies and providers are looking for new ways to help patients access quality care, reduce costs and minimize wait times. Mahan says through collaboration with local hospitals and health systems, Exer is able to help ease the burden felt by local emergency departments while also increasing access to the care people want, when they need it most.

With on-site services such as X-Ray, IV, Lab, Splinting, Laceration Rooms, Diagnostics and other services, each Exer location is equipped to handle 80 percent of the cases seen daily in a local Emergency Room with minimal waiting and for a fraction of the price.

In addition to Canyon Country, Exer operates centers in Stevenson Ranch, Pasadena, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, Beverly Hills, Calabasas, Newbury Park, Northridge and Sherman Oaks. Each facility is open seven days-a-week from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. with little-to-no waiting and last patients are registered daily at 8:30 p.m. Exer accepts most PPOs, most HMOs, Medicare and offers affordable payment options for those with minimal or no health insurance.

A company spokesman confirmed plans are underway to open more Exer locations in Southern California later this year. No additional details were provided.
