New “After Hours Healthcare” Facility Open In Evergreen
Now Offering $5 Flu Shots to Community Members

There is a new small business in Evergreen and you’ll love their slogan, “Healthcare on YOUR schedule”.
Think about all the times you’ve had to go to the hospital emergency room for cuts, illnesses and other “non-life-threatening” issues such as an ear or sinus infections, which always seem to occur when your doctor’s office is closed. Most Evergreen residents have likely faced at least one long uncomfortable weekend suffering through some health issue, or have found themselves camped out in the ER for hours, probably leaving with a hefty bill. Happily for Evergreen, there is a new healthcare option in town: After Hours Healthcare.
After Hours Healthcare recently opened a new location in Evergreen, on Aborn Road, next door to the Red Lobster Restaurant. The Evergreen location is its second facility, after establishing its initial successful urgent care practice in Los Gatos in 2010. It is a family-owned business, created by its founder and current Medical Director, Dr. A. Richard Adrouny, a practicing Oncologist-Hematologist in Los Gatos for over 25 years.
Dr. Adrouny founded After Hours Healthcare as a direct response to the lack of medical care available “after hours” and on the weekend for his own patients. He saw that his patients had few options for affordable and convenient after hours care; most opting for the ER, even for non-life-threatening issues. A quick review on Yelp shows the great need and appreciation for Dr. Adrouny’s services, with many repeat customers happy with both the medical care and convenience.
Urgent Care
The facility aims to provide high quality walk-in urgent care by a compassionate staff for non-life threatening issues, with shorter waits and at lower-cost than a typical emergency room visit.
Additional Medical Services
After Hours Healthcare also provides a variety of additional medical services such as: vaccinations (flu, whooping cough, travel), immunizations, physicals (team sports, employment, immigration and wellness), pediatric care (no infant care), STD testing, TB testing, laceration and wound care, and routine checks for blood pressure or diabetes. They care for issues related to internal medicine and primary care. Infusion services are available by appointment.
To introduce their facility and staff to the community, After Hours Healthcare is currently offering $5 flu shots. Stop by and welcome them to Evergreen!
After Hours Healthcare is located at 2060 Aborn Road, Suite 125. Their phone number is 408-531-1200. Their website is www.AfterHoursHealth.com. The facility is open Monday-Friday from 9am-10pm and Saturday-Sunday from 9am-6pm. They accept all major forms of insurance, with the exception of HMOs and straight Medi-Cal. They also accept Medicare.
