The Emergency Center: San Antonio’s Top Emergency Room
If you or a loved one in San Antonio, Texas are in need of prompt, comprehensive medical care, turn to the experts at The Emergency Center. We are a freestanding emergency room – a medical facility that functions as a traditional emergency room, with the exception being that it is not attached to a hospital. Conveniently located in the West 7th Street area, our facility is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year with board-certified physicians, ICU- and ER-trained nurses, and X-ray technicians. And, because we experience a smaller patient volume than a typical emergency room or urgent care clinic, we are able to provide a high level of comprehensive medical care, often in a fraction of the time.
The physicians and nurses at The Emergency Center are capable of swiftly diagnosing and treating a variety of emergency and non-emergency illnesses and injuries in both children and adults, allowing patients to get back to enjoying life as quickly as possible. Whether you are suffering from head, chest, or abdominal pain; fractured, sprained, or broken bones; shortness of breath; vomiting; dehydration; or even seemingly mild symptoms like a fever or sore throat, you can trust that our team of experienced medical professionals will treat you as if you are the most important person in our facility, and provide you with friendly, immediate care in a relaxed setting.
Additionally, in the event that a patient requires surgery, we will stabilize them and quickly arrange their transportation by ambulance to a nearby hospital, allowing them to bypass the lengthy wait times typical of hospital emergency rooms.
Our Telemedicine Services and Other Advanced Technologies Help Us Provide Convenient, Thorough Critical Care to San Antonio, TX, Patients
In order to provide patients with the highest level of comprehensive immediate care, The Emergency Center, located on Alamo Ranch Parkway, is fully equipped with a wide range of cutting-edge technologies in three convenient locations. For example, our high-resolution 64-slice CT scanner provides advanced imaging that less advanced CT scanners cannot, such as detailed evaluation of coronary arteries.
At The Emergency Center, we take a unique, patient-centric approach to emergency care. We make it our priority to educate each and every patient on their condition and treatment options, so they can make an informed decision about their health care. Additionally, because we understand that remembering medical information can be challenging when you aren’t feeling well, our patients always receive an audio recording of their diagnosis and at-home care instructions upon leaving our facility, and may also receive up to 72 hours of their prescription medication, allowing them to return straight home and rest. We also utilize advanced telemedicine services, which allow our physicians to follow up with patients “face-to-face” through a smartphone, tablet, or other device, often preventing the need for another trip to our facility. It’s just another way we make receiving quick care more convenient for our patients.
