Exer More Than Urgent Care has opened a new location in Santa Clarita in partnership with Providence Health & Services.

The 6,660-square-foot facility is the seventh location for the Encino-based chain of urgent care clinics. The location features 12 patient rooms with onsite X-ray, splinting, pediatrics and diagnostic services.

Rob Mahan, chief executive of Exer, said the company’s decision to open a location in Santa Clarita was in response to the growing economy in the region.

“We were impressed by the community,” he said. “It is a bustling community and future growth is promising.”

The partnership with Providence will allow Exer to facilitate continuity of care when it comes to patients. The majority of ER patients should go to facilities like Exer where the wait is shorter, Mahan said.

Exer is also in partnership with other local providers such as HealthCare Partners and UCLA medical group.
