SAN DIEGO, July 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- One Medical, the largest independently held primary care practice in the nation on a mission to transform health care, announced it will be further expanding its footprint, bringing its unique brand of intelligent primary care to San Diego County. As part of the new market launch, One Medical also announced a new relationship with UC San Diego Health, one of the nation’s premier academic medical centers, to more seamlessly coordinate primary and specialty care and better serve consumers and employers.

Three new One Medical offices will be opened in San Diego in early 2019 to offer easy access and convenience to a new community of people. Members in San Diego will have 24/7 instantaneous access to One Medical’s premier providers and support staff through its app-based video visits, messaging and voice options.

With the addition of San Diego, One Medical will be providing care in nine metropolitan markets across seven states. The brand serves over 1,000 employer brands who rely on One Medical to bring an elevated health experience and value-based care to their employees through near-site and on-site care.
