On April 12, Cottage Health opened its brand new Cottage Urgent Care Center at 3885 State Street in Santa Barbara. The new urgent care center “aims to provide care within 45 minutes” and will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. 365 days a year, according to Cottage Health spokeswoman Maria Zate.

This is the first Cottage Urgent Care Center in Santa Barbara. It will be staffed by a Registered Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant, X-ray Technician and Clinical Janitors who will provide high quality care.

Conditions that can be treated at the new center include minor scrapes and cuts, burns, sprains, allergies, earaches, urinary tract infections, skin conditions, rashes, poison ivy, colds and flu, COVID tests and other minor ailments and injuries. More serious conditions may be referred to a local emergency department or doctor.
