Founded by Dr. Pin, AMC operates as a primary and urgent care physician practice with offices on Smyth Drive in the community of Valencia .
“Advanced Medical Care has a great reputation in the Santa Clarita Valley for its quality and professionalism. It’s a perfect fit for PMG,” said Kerry Carmody, chief operating officer for Providence Health & Services, California .
“Providence continues to branch out in the Santa Clarita Valley area, and one goal is to build relationships with outstanding physician practices. With our thriving Providence Holy Cross Health Center in Valencia and our 138-bed expansion opening early next year at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in nearby Mission Hills, we are poised to serve the healthcare needs of more and more Santa Clarita area residents.”
One goal of this new relationship is to strengthen the ties between AMC and Providence Holy Cross and Providence Saint Joseph medical centers.
“The providers of AMC are excited to join Providence , a dedicated and well respected leader in health care,” said Dr. Pin, president of AMC. “We see this as an opportunity to expand services to our patients and to grow to better serve the needs of our community.”

Dr. Yi also is board-certified in family medicine. He served as a chief resident and was the recipient of the Eldon Berglund award for his academic excellence, educational commitment and abiding concern for the welfare of his patients.
