Artesia General expands Carlsbad services

Artesia General Hospital announced that it expanded its services in Carlsbad with a Family Practice Clinic led by Anna Florez, FNP-C, four days per week, and Bianca Ortega, PA-C, one day per week.

Florez and Ortega have been trusted members of the Artesia and Carlsbad communities for years, specializing in family health for people of all ages.

Hours of operation at the Family Practice Clinic in Carlsbad are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, with both walk-ins and appointments available. The clinic is located at 2405 W. Pierce St. in Carlsbad, which was previously an Urgent Care facility.

“This expansion—and Anna Florez’s and Bianca Ortega’s wide areas of expertise, including pediatric, internal and women’s care—means that those local to Carlsbad will have access even more options for the care they trust,” said a hospital spokesperson.

“And that they won’t have to travel far away to receive it.”
