About San Diego

San Diego has a population of about 1.3 Million people. Because of this large population density, health-related incidents become equally prevalent. As a result, San Diego houses 19 Urgent Care Centers and six hospitals. Within the 20-mile area span of Sandiego, twenty healthcare centers are spun within the neighboring towns of Chula Vista, Imperial Beach, and La Mesa. Urgent Care health centers in San Diego are of two major brands: The US Healthworks, and The Kaiser Permanente. The various Urgent Care Health Center/Walk-in clinics spread throughout the city enable an easy and affordable access of healthcare facilities to the San Diego community. Currently, about 17.39% of San Diego residents lack a health insurance cover. The Urgent Care Walk-in clinics offer an affordable alternative to most of the city’s dwellers. Thanks to PlushCare’s corporation with Urgent Health, San Diego dwellers can now access medical services over the phone. This invention has reduced the hustle of getting through inaccessible areas within the city as well as the county. More about Urgent Care can be accessible through the Urgent Care FAQ page.
