What is the difference between a freestanding emergency center and a traditional hospital ER?

Freestanding emergency rooms function just like traditional hospital ERs with the exception that they are not connected with a hospital.  Because we experience a smaller patient volume than a hospital ER or urgent care clinic, we are able to provide immediate acute emergency care services.

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 ERs.

Do you treat children emergencies as well as adults?

Yes, The Emergency Center is well equipped to handle common children and pediatric emergencies, and even more chronic conditions, such as abdominal pain and asthma.  Come see us to avoid excessive wait times and risks of interhospital transfers at traditional hospital ERs that are overwhelmed or ill-equipped to handle your child’s emergency.

Our Commitment to the San Antonio Community

The physicians and nurses at our San Antonio ER act swiftly in 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.

In order to provide patients with the highest level of comprehensive, immediate care, The Emergency Center is fully equipped with a wide range of leading-edge technologies in one convenient location. For example, our high-resolution 64-slice CT scanner provides advanced imaging, such as detailed evaluation of coronary arteries. Our Arlington facility also has an onsite laboratory and pharmacy, eliminating the need for patients to travel elsewhere when these services are needed immediately.

Our Approach

At The Emergency Center San Antonio, 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. It’s just another way we make receiving quick care more convenient for our patients.

If you or a loved one in San Antonio requires prompt, convenient, and comprehensive emergency care, trust the experts at The Emergency Center.
