UC Irvine announced Thursday that it is opening up two new “primary care centers” in Orange and Tustin.

The new centers will offer family and internal medicine, plus lab tests. The Tustin center will focus on pediatrics and rheumatology, urgent care and X-rays and ultrasounds.

The university will have 13 physicians assigned to the two centers.

“The UC Irvine health centers are an opportunity to transform how care is delivered to patients,” Dr. Sajee Lekawa, medical director of UC Irvine Health Medical Group, said. “This is one-stop shopping for comprehensive primary care. We believe combining it with specialists, urgent care and hospital-level services like imaging and laboratory testing is innovative and puts the needs of the patients front and center, where they should be.”

New technology, such as Google Glass, will be used at the centers to more easily access electronic medical records.

The center at 1451 Irvine Blvd. in Tustin is scheduled to open Nov. 4. The center in Orange at 293 S. Main St., Suite 200, is scheduled to open Nov. 5.
