Exer Urgent Care will open its latest location in the San Fernando Valley on Wednesday at 6440 Platt Ave. in West Hills.
The new location marks Exer’s 15th facility in Southern California, and its eighth in the Valley area, according to a statement from the emergency room alternative group. It is headquartered in Calabasas.
Exer aims to “ease the strain” on local emergency departments in the area, with on-site X-rays, labs, a pharmacy, intravenous, splinting, laceration and diagnostics services. The group can handle 80 percent of cases that pass through hospital emergency rooms, Exer said.
The West Hills Exer location will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. The other Valley area locations are Calabasas, Canyon Country, Newbury Park, Northridge, Sherman Oaks, Stevenson Ranch and Westlake Village.
