New outpatient center opens in Pleasanton

John Muir, San Ramon Regional in joint health care venture

John Muir Health and San Ramon Regional Medical Center opened their new jointly-operated Pleasanton Outpatient Center this week at 5860 Owens Drive.

Health care providers and services available at the center include primary, pediatric and specialty care as well as imaging and laboratory services. Urgent care services are available seven days a week starting at 9 a.m. and up to 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and until 6 p.m. on Sundays.

Special senior and wellness services also are available along with care for those with chronic health conditions.

"At the Pleasanton Outpatient Center, the Tri-Valley community can access a wide range of medical services, all in one convenient location," said Paul Smith, chief executive officer of the joint venture. "Our services are available to the entire community and we accept most insurance plans, which means even if you don't have a doctor located at our center, you can use our services like the Urgent Care, lab and imaging."

Patients can also use online tools through MyJohnMuirHealth to message their John Muir Health doctor, schedule appointments, view lab results, request prescription renewals, get diagnosed and treated using eVisits.

"Through our partnership with San Ramon Regional Medical Center, we're excited to provide the Tri-Valley community with expanded choices for high-quality, patient-centered care, close to home in a modern, healing environment," said Lee Huskins, president and chief administrative officer of John Muir Health's Physician Network.

"Offering primary care physicians, specialists and care managers in one location enhances collaboration, knowledge sharing and care coordination, which allows us to partner with our patients to better manage their health," Huskins added.

San Ramon Regional Medical Center and John Muir Health announced and completed their joint venture partnership in 2013. Through the partnership, John Muir Health acquired a 49% ownership interest in San Ramon Regional Medical Center. As part of the agreement, the two medical groups are jointly developing outpatient projects in other communities, similar to the Pleasanton Outpatient Center.
