Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian of Newport Beach announced Monday it will open a health clinic at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana.
The Fly Well Clinic will provide travelers with various services such as office visits, telehealth consultations, immunizations, as well as treatment for cold or flu symptoms. The clinic will also provide rapid COVID-19 testing, blood pressure and other vital screenings.
A pop-up health fair at the airport was offered Monday to preview the new clinic, which is scheduled to open this spring.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the world’s travel habits, shining a spotlight brighter than ever on passengers’ health and travel safety,” said Hoag President and CEO Robert T. Braithwaite. “Hoag is proud to partner with John Wayne Airport to address the health care needs of the 10 million people who fly to or from the airport every year.”
Airport Director Barry Rondinella said the airport “continually innovates to help our guests connect to their travel destination in a way that is safe and secure, and this partnership aligns perfectly with our mission. As the highest-ranked health care provider in Orange County, Hoag is uniquely positioned to address our guests’ specific health care needs, as well as the needs of the nearly 900 people who work at the airport.”
