REDDING, Calif. – Starting January 5, Pulse Urgent Care Center in Redding will be reopening its urgent care services after closing in November.
But patients who plan to visit the clinic can expect to see some changes.
Patients will need to make appointments because the center will only be taking appointments.
People will also need to wear masks at all times when inside and the lobby will only be allowing 6 people at a time.
Pulse Urgent Care Center says with its urgent care services reopening, this would help relieve some of the pressure the hospitals are facing.
“We decompress the emergency rooms to provide [the patients] in a faster fashion,” said Dr. Paul Dhanuka who helps manages Pulse Urgent Care Center.
“We can see the patients much faster and won't have to wait too long and emergency rooms can take care of much more serious patients.”
Back in November, Pulse Urgent Care Center closed its urgent care services after some of its staff were either caught Covid-19 or were exposed to it.
Pulse Urgent Care Center will be open Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday's from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
