We have expanded our health care footprint in Los Angeles County by opening
our fifth Pomona Valley Health Center (PVHC) in La Verne. The new facility
opened February 12, 2018 and will now give residents a nearby choice for
primary and urgent health care as well as diagnostic and outpatient rehabilitation services.
“The opening of the La Verne Health Center furthers our commitment
to deliver high-quality and convenient health care and wellness programs
close to home. We’ve had the privilege of serving La Verne families
for decades at our other facilities,” said Richard E. Yochum, FACHE,
president/CEO. “We’re pleased to now offer La Verne and San
Dimas residents comprehensive health care services – from pediatrics
to adult care – at a single location in their community. We’re
also delighted to welcome the La Verne Health Center physicians to our
health care family.”
The new La Verne Health Center furthers our commitment to population health
with the goal of keeping people well within their community. The 33,500-square
foot center is designed to be a more convenient place for patients to
access comprehensive medical and health care services from Premier Family
Medicine Associates physicians. We anticipate accommodating 13,000 primary
care, 17,000 urgent care and 10,000 physical therapy visits annually through
this new center. Among the physical therapy services available, the new
La Verne center offers aquatic therapy in a Medicare-approved warm water
pool. In addition, radiology services, including ultrasound, computed
tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) tests and mammograms
will be offered.
Primary care at our new La Verne facility is overseen by Medical Director
Michael Deanda, M.D. Dr. Deanda provides comprehensive health care to
patients of all ages, and occupational medicine for injured workers. He
also delivers compassionate hospice and palliative care to patients in
need of end-of-life care.
The other primary care providers are William Casas, M.D.; Craig Endo, M.D.;
Tiffany Endo, M.D.; and Claudia Lopez, M.D.
Medical Director Stefan Reynoso, M.D., will lead urgent care services along
with Associate Medical Director Saman Aboudi, M.D. Dr. Reynoso brings
16 years of experience practicing medicine. His goal as medical director
is to imbue PVHC with courtesy, respect and professionalism. Dr. Aboudi
has been practicing medicine since 2004. As assistant medical director
of PVHC Urgent Care, his philosophy is to treat every patient like a member
of his own family and relate to them in a genuinely compassionate and
Teri Yoshitake, M.D., Dana Homer-Bertrand, D.O. and Monique Castro, M.D.
also will be part of the urgent care team.
PVHC La Verne is located at 2333 Foothill Boulevard. Family medicine services
will be offered 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, while urgent
care and occupational medicine will be open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through
