News & Highlights

SANTA ANITA CLINIC HOURS DURING DEL MAR RACE MEETING

This is a reminder that the Santa Anita Clinic will be open, as usual, Monday thru Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. during the Del Mar race meet, even though horses are not stabled at Santa Anita.

 HOURS AT OUR GOLDEN GATE FIELDS CLINIC

Until further notice, due to horses again stabled at Pleasanton, our Golden Gate Fields Clinic will be open until 2:30 p.m. Monday thru Wednesday.  Dr. Natasha Phan, our new physician, will be on duty on Wednesdays from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.  Beginning the week of July 10th, Dr. Phan will be back at Golden Gate Fields on Wednesdays and Fridays.  Also, we are adding a half day for one of our dentists, Dr. Chi.  Check with the clinic as we plan on scheduling additional appointments starting in July.

PLEASANTON MEDICAL CLINIC CLOSING AFTER PLEASANTON FAIR RACE MEETING

The Pleasanton Medical Clinic is open each Thursday and Friday, with Dr. Phan on duty, on Thursdays, until the conclusion of the Pleasanton Fair race meeting in July.  Alejandra, our Certified Medical Assistant, will be in the clinic every Friday for follow-up visits.

Due to changes in the 2017 off-site stabling calendar in northern California, the CTHF will be closing its Pleasanton Fairgrounds Medical Clinic trailer for good, after the Fair concludes in July.

In the future, workers stabled at Pleasanton can seek medical assistance at our Golden Gate Fields Clinic that will be open Mondays thru Fridays, excepting holidays, once the medical unit is no longer at the Pleasanton Fairgrounds.

EXPANDED DOCTOR HOURS AT LOS ALAMITOS

Beginning on Wednesday, July 12th, we will add one day to our physician’s schedule and will be taking appointments for both Wednesdays and Thursdays, until further notice.  This is in response to the growth of business at Los Alamitos.  The dentist and dental hygienist will still be working on Mondays and Tuesdays.  Please call for an appointment.

INSURED WORKERS CAN BE SEEN AT OUR CLINICS

As more eligible workers (active CHRB license only required) have signed up for various medical insurance programs, there seems to be some confusion over clinic visits.  Having insurance does not prevent a worker or a worker’s family from utilizing one of our clinics.  The insurance only comes into play if the patient requires an outside referral.

BACK TO SCHOOL EVENT – AUGUST 8TH

We are signing up students for the ever-popular Back To School Event scheduled for Tuesday, August 8th, in the Santa Anita Clubhouse area.  All kinds of school supplies, backpacks, uniforms, shoes, haircuts, etc. are available for kindergarten through college age students FREE OF CHARGE.  The sign up deadline is July 31st.  Please call Aracely or Angela at (626) 446-0169.
