Closure of Saddleback Family and Urgent Care
After 40 years of caring for the Orange County community, we are unfortunately closing our doors, with primary care service ending July 31 and urgent care ending August 14, 2023. Despite our best efforts, we can no longer sustain our services due to significant financial and operational challenges. We have been deeply committed to our patients and we sincerely apologize.
Finding a new provider promptly is important for your continued well-being. Reach out to your insurance provider for guidance to identify a participating provider who meets your preferences and healthcare needs.
We are happy to assist you in transferring your medical records to ensure a smooth transition of care. Medical records are confidential and protected by federal privacy and security regulations. Please complete and sign the HIPAA-compliant authorization form to release your records. Return the completed form to the clinic or email it to SBKMedicalRecords@vituity.com as soon as possible, but no later than August 31, 2023. Our Team will need approximately 5 business days to retrieve and prepare the records.
- You may pick up your medical record(s) at this practice; please call or email five business days in advance; or
- You may have your record(s) sent to you or to a physician you designate.
After August 31, 2023, you may obtain a copy of your medical record(s) by contacting (657) 206-2561 and SBKMedicalRecords@vituity.com or visit our website for more information.
It has been a privilege caring for you. Our team is committed to serving you through our closing.

We wish you continued health and happiness under the care of your new provider.
