Uvita Urgent Care at the New Vita Plaza
AUTHOR: Dagmar Reinhard
Responding to observations from patients treated at Quepos Urgent Care and who mentioned that there was no emergency center here on the coast, they opened Uvita Urgent Care a few months ago.
They found the ideal place at the new Vita Plaza, the same building where Mora Valdez Dentistry is located, thus forming an excellent synergy. The clinic is conveniently located at the entrance to Uvita and covers the entire Costa Ballena area. Here they offer 24/7 medical emergency services (*subject to availability of medical personnel). In addition, they provide general medical services, medical specialties, X-rays, clinical laboratory, microbiology, and Covid testing.
All staff is perfectly bi-lingual, and Ivannia at the reception will kindly greet you in your language.
A novelty for Costa Ballena is the modern ambulance that can save lives. It is equipped with advanced support equipment for a safe transfer to a hospital, class A, in San José. If necessary, they can also coordinate an air ambulance.
A few months ago, Dr. Rodrigo Padilla, who worked for years with the center in Quepos, moved to Uvita to manage Uvita Urgent Care.
He loves living in the Uvita community; he says that the neighbors are very warm people. He is learning to surf and feels very comfortable near the beaches and in the middle of exuberant nature. "The future is in the Osa," he adds. And as always, and even more so, he says hello with "Pura Vida," "this is what Uvita Urgent Care is all about, which is to restore all vital energy to the body."
