Pasadena Urgent Care Center
This is an artist's rendering of the Pasadena Urgent Care Center. Construction is underway at 3160 E. Del Mar Blvd., just west of Madre Street in East Pasadena where such a center is needed. We had a groundbreaking ceremony on March 3.
Here's the money shot with the officials and their golden shovels. City Manager Michael Beck is third from the left, our city architect Segun Abegunrin second from the right, Mayor Bill Bogaard is two down from Segun, and Dr. Takashi Wada of our Public Health Department is next to Mayor Bogaard. The other smiling faces in the shot are those of officials from our partner agencies in this effort, including Huntington Medical Foundation, Kaiser Permanente and Community Health Alliance of Pasadena (CHAP).
The City of Pasadena owns the property, Huntington Medical Foundation will operate the urgent care center and CHAP will have a primary care clinic there. The center will operate on a trial basis for an initial period of five years.
We'll invite everybody to the grand opening toward the end of this year.
