How is John Muir Health different?
John Muir Health is an open system that allows you flexibility in choosing how you receive care and who you go to for care. Our outpatient centers offer a one-stop shop for a wide variety of services, from primary and urgent care services to specialists to lab/imaging services, while our Walnut Creek and Concord hospitals are ranked in the top three in the San Francisco Metro Area by U.S. News & World Report. At John Muir Health, we know that listening and explaining lead to better care.
