Convenient health care offered on same-day, walk-in basis

Scripps Health today announced the opening of a Scripps HealthExpress location at its existing Scripps Coastal Medical Center Oceanside outpatient center. The opening is part of a major expansion of Scripps’ walk-in, convenient care division.

The Oceanside HealthExpress site, located at 4318 Mission Avenue, is open to all patients ages 5 and older, not just current Scripps patients. Open seven days a week, HealthExpress hours run from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Patients also can call a new nurse triage line during those same hours for assistance in asking questions about their condition prior to visiting HealthExpress and to determine what course of care is most appropriate.

The Oceanside site is supervised by physicians from Scripps Coastal Medical Group, with care provided by nurse practitioners and physician assistants.

“Life doesn’t happen only during business hours,” said Anthony Chong, MD, a family medicine physician and chief medical officer of Scripps Coastal Medical Group. “That’s why HealthExpress is open when patients need us the most, from early morning to late in the evening every day of the week.”

HealthExpress offers a wide variety of medical services for minor illnesses and injuries on a walk-in, same-day basis.

HealthExpress services include:

  • Care for flu-like symptoms, ear infections, sinus infections, urinary tract infections, skin conditions, bug bites and stings, and other minor conditions
  • School (ages 12 and up), camp and sports physicals are available for $69 and for clearance purposes only (does not include annual preventive wellness exam)
  • Vaccinations for the flu, tetanus, pertussis and diphtheria
  • Care for minor cuts, burns and wounds
  • Point of care tests for blood sugar, pregnancy, strep and flu

Accessing care at HealthExpress is easy and no appointment is necessary. Patients can walk in, or hold their place in line through a triage nurse by dialing 858-554-7439 or by visiting

HealthExpress accepts payment through most health insurance plans as well as by credit card, cash and check. Visits, excluding physicals, are billed as a primary care office visit.

Additional HealthExpress locations will open at other Scripps outpatient locations across San Diego County through the end of September.Learn more about Scripps Health, a nonprofit integrated health system in San Diego, Calif.
