Concentra Opens New Urgent Care Center in Northwest San Antonio


SAN ANTONIO – January 5, 2015 – Concentra, a subsidiary of health and well-being company Humana Inc., announces the opening of its newest Concentra Urgent Care location in San Antonio at 12651 Vance Jackson Road, Suite 114, in the Fiesta Trails Shopping Center. This is the sixth Concentra Urgent Care center in Bexar County and one of the company’s largest centers.

Founded in 1979, Concentra has steadily grown to become one of the largest national providers of occupational health and urgent care services. With more than 300 urgent care locations in the U.S., Concentra offers quality, efficient medical care at convenient times and locations to meet patients’ health care needs.

The Concentra Urgent Care Center at Fiesta Trails provides treatment for a variety of common non-life threatening illnesses, injuries and conditions as well as occupational, wellness, digital x-ray and health screening services. The center is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

The center also offers in-house physical therapy services open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Therapy treatments include post-operative rehabilitation, work-related and sports injuries, arthritis and age-related conditions and chronic physical disabilities.

“We are excited to bring our expertise in urgent care, occupational health, physical therapy and patient care to our new location in northwest San Antonio,” said Kevin Boehle, D.O.,M,P.H., Regional Medical Director for Concentra. “Urgent care helps to bridge the gap between primary care physicians and emergency departments, at a time when primary care physicians are increasingly over-burdened and the cost of treating non-emergency health issues at EDs has become an unsustainable economic drain on patients.”

The Fiesta Trails center personnel includes Clinic Medical Director Miguel Ramirez-Colon, M.D., Physician Assistant Eugene Trotta, Area Physical Therapy Director Callie Sides, P.T., D.P.T., and three medical assistants. The center also houses three front office staff including Center Operations Director Jennifer Buffalo.

“We are determined to improve the patient experience by providing respectful and skillful care that is convenient, easily accessible to work or home and affordable,” said Dr. Ramirez-Colon. “We look forward to serving individual patient needs as well as the occupational health needs of businesses in the area.”

The new Concentra Urgent Care is conveniently located on San Antonio’s northwest side in the Fiesta Trails Shopping Center, near the intersection of I.H. 10 and DeZavala Road, providing easy access to nearby communities and businesses. The center features the company’s signature design and updated interior elements to create a warm and relaxing atmosphere.

The center offers six patient exam rooms, a procedure room, a physical therapy area, digital x-ray technology, and a bold graphic directional system. Taking a note from the hotel industry, the new center is designed from the patient’s perspective, with every element working to create an exceptional experience.
