Third Urgent Care to Open in American Canyon

Posted: June 24, 2021

NorthBay Healthcare, in partnership with Carbon Health, already operates two successful urgent care centers amid retail centers in Vacaville and Fairfield.

City officials said they were pleased to welcome the development at 416 Napa Junction Road, in the Napa Junction Commercial Center.

“We are overjoyed you are bringing these services to NorthBay Healthcare President and CEO Konard Jones speaks to the crowd at the groundbreaking.American Canyon,” said Mayor Leon Garcia. “This is what our growing community needs.” He noted how many health care workers live in his city and added “I am pleased to see a facility come in and focus on the wellbeing of the people who live here and in the surrounding area.”

NorthBay President and CEO Konard Jones greeted the crowd at the event, saying, “We believe you should have the care you need in the community in which you live. We believe American Canyon should have an urgent care center close to home, eliminating the need to travel elsewhere.”

And he emphasized NorthBay’s commitment to being a part of the fabric of the community.

“We don’t hold a groundbreaking and a ribbon-cutting and fade away, never to be seen again,” he said. “You will see us supporting local non-profits, youth organizations, civic groups, school fundraisers, social service agencies and business groups like the Chamber of Commerce.”

Wayne Gietz, vice president of Ambulatory Services, introduces members of his team during the groundbreaking ceremony.Ultimately, he said, “American Canyon today may not know NorthBay Healthcare, but I promise you come next summer American Canyon will know NorthBay Healthcare.”

The facility will be similar to urgent care centers in Vacaville and Fairfield, with an open and airy design and convenient advanced technology kiosks for checking in.

“Our involvement in offering COVID-19 vaccine pop-up clinics in American Canyon in 2021 helped establish connections and paved the way for the decision to expand to American Canyon, considered the gateway to the Napa Valley,” said Wayne Gietz, vice president of Ambulatory Services. “We look forward to serving the community.”

Vacaville’s urgent care is in Nut Tree Plaza, while Fairfield’s urgent care is in a building within the parking lot of Solano Town Center mall, just a block from NorthBay Medical Center. Both are easily Caesar Djavaherian, co-founder of Carbon Health and a NorthBay Healthcare emergency medicine physician talks about the new urgent care.accessible for local residents and travelers alike, proving to be a viable alternative to an emergency room, offering shorter waits and lower cost, and an option when a visit with their regular doctor isn’t readily available.

The American Canyon facility will be in a commercial center on Highway 29, near areas planned for housing and an industrial park.

“We see this as something that will benefit other business in the center,” Gietz explained. “First, it gives nearby employers a place to send workers who suffer with minor injuries during the workday, but don’t need hospital care; and second, it will increase customer traffic to the Napa Junction.”

The builder is Sierra View of Sacramento, which has constructed other buildings in American Canyon, including other medical office buildings. The architect is Boulder & Associates, with offices in San Francisco and Sacramento. NorthBay will invest $1.5 million in building improvement, equipment, furnishings and technology.

As an added convenience, all clinics offer “Virtual Urgent Care,” whereby patients can use smartphones to talk with an urgent care provider and get treated for a range of conditions.

“Our hope is that the community quickly appreciates the quality and accessibility of urgent care and what we call ‘The NorthBay Way’ of delivering it,” Gietz added, “That would lead us to consider adding even more services to the American Canyon community.”
