LAGUNA NIGUEL, CALIF. (July 21, 2016) — Community leaders, physicians and health care providers joined OptumCare for the grand opening of the new OptumCare™ Medical Group office in Laguna Niguel. The ribbon-cutting event celebrates the first of two medical office openings for OptumCare Medical Group in Southern California this summer.

With the opening of OptumCare Medical Group offices in Laguna Niguel and Huntington Beach, more than 100 OptumCare Medical Group physicians and advanced care professionals are now delivering care to more than 100,000 patients in Southern California.

OptumCare, part of health services and innovation company Optum®, is a health care delivery organization that provides a full range of services for patients including individual and family care as well as urgent care and advanced care for serious illness and chronic conditions.

The opening of these two new locations as OptumCare Medical Group is helping create a seamless continuum of care for patients — one that is easy to access and is united under one brand name. The company has been building delivery capabilities around Southern California and the country for the past several years. It is putting infrastructure in place to create an integrated network that ultimately will connect patients to additional OptumCare services and settings.

“OptumCare Medical Group is excited to open the medical offices in Laguna Niguel and Huntington Beach,” said Dr. Howard Bland, president of OptumCare Medical Group. “With these new offices we can help more people stay healthier and active so they can enjoy life.”

As part of the OptumCare Medical Group family, both of these new locations will deliver an easy, well-coordinated and caring health care experience.

The new OptumCare Medical Group office in Laguna Niguel is part of the former Premier Physicians Medical Group, and has relocated just two miles northeast to 30281 Golden Lantern. This location offers patients more convenient parking and easier access from major freeways and streets. The new 7,500-square-foot office includes 18 exam rooms, one procedure room, adult and geriatric care, pediatric care, endocrinology care, and onsite laboratory and other amenities to improve care delivery. Spanish, Tagalog and Korean will be spoken at this location to better serve the community.

The OptumCare Medical Group office in Huntington Beach is part of the former Family Practice Physicians and has relocated just 1.5 miles north of the current office. The new single-story location at 10110 Adams Ave. boasts 5,250 square feet of office space with 12 exam rooms, one procedure room, ample parking and a nearby pharmacy.

As part of the ribbon-cutting event, OptumCare Medical Group Laguna Niguel lead physician Dr. Vincent Duda presented a $2,000 grant to Alzheimer's Orange County to help support care for people with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia. In Huntington Beach, OptumCare Medical Group is partnering with the Huntington Beach Council on Aging and presenting a $2,000 grant to support the new Senior Center in Central Park.

The OptumCare family in Southern California is composed of 20 well-known and trusted medical offices and three contracting medical networks — many which have operated for decades — including AppleCare Medical Group, Monarch HealthCare and NAMM California. Physicians and advanced care practitioners provide primary care and specialty care services.
