This coming Monday, October 24th, the medical facility-rich environment that is Lower Pac Heights will gain a new healthcare center.

GoHealth Urgent Care, which seeks to treat minor injuries that require immediate care in partnership with Dignity Health, is set to open its door in the former King of Falafel location.

After 40 years in business at the corner of Divisadero and Bush, King of Falafel shuttered at  last December.

GoHealth Urgent Care has been on a spree, opening a handful of new locations around the city this year. Back in July, we reported that a GoHealth Urgent Care center had opened up shop in the Castro, in the space formerly occupied by Radio Shack. Additional locations followed earlier this month in Glen Park, Cole Valley and the Excelsior.

The Lower Pac Heights center marks the fifth GoHealth Urgent Care in San Francisco. The company plans to open a dozen such facilities in the next year.

Chuck Kruger, President of North California GoHealth Urgent Care, says Monday's opening "is a very exciting milestone, as we will now be able to offer the residents of Lower Pacific Heights convenient, expert care in the heart of their neighborhood. As part of our patient-focused approach, we have partnered with Dignity Health to ensure that the community is treated with the highest quality of care.”

The center will be open 8am-8pm Mondays through Fridays, and 8am-5pm on weekends. Appointments are scheduled through the mobile app or by visiting the website here.
