Learn About Critical Care

Children and adults in Fort Worth, Texas may receive care for many critical and non-critical emergent conditions from The Emergency Center. At our freestanding emergency center, we can treat headaches, chest and abdominal pain, fever, and broken bones. Despite the extensive diagnostic and treatment abilities of our physicians and nurses, however, there are some cases where a patient’s condition may be beyond our critical care capabilities, such as when immediate surgery is needed.

Promptly dial 911 if you or a loved one is experiencing a potentially life-threatening condition, such as:

– Childbirth complications

– A gunshot wound

– A potential spinal injury

– Uncontrollable bleeding

– Loss of consciousness

While the aforementioned conditions are very serious, the majority of illnesses and injuries can be effectively treated at The Emergency Center, a fully equipped emergency room that is not attached to a hospital. Our board-certified physicians provide expedited critical care to our Fort Worth, TX, patients in a calm, relaxed setting – anytime day or night. If a patient seeks critical care at The Emergency Center, but our physicians determine he or she requires hospitalization, we will stabilize the patient and quickly arrange their transportation via ambulance to a nearby hospital. There, they will be promptly treated, with no need to wait for admission.

If you are unsure about whether you require immediate critical care or are stable enough to seek treatment from The Emergency Center, it is best to dial 911.
