24 Hour Freestanding Emergency Room

The Emergency Center is a fully equipped freestanding emergency room that is staffed with board-certified physicians, ICU- and ER-trained nurses, X-ray technicians, and helpful administrative staff 24 hours a day. The main difference between us and a traditional emergency room is that our facilities aren’t directly connected to a hospital.

At The Emergency Center, we believe in providing compassionate emergency care that is quick and efficient, allowing our patients to get back to enjoying their lives as soon as possible. Our emergency clinics are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, in order to provide patients with the same high level of comprehensive care that they would expect from a traditional hospital emergency room.

24/7 ER

We are qualified to treat a wide range of illnesses and ailments, including flu like symptoms, chest pain, abdominal pain, broken bones, cardiac arrest and more.

We offer a variety of emergency services, including:
– High-resolution CT scans
– X-ray imaging
– Ultrasound imaging
– Procedural sedation
– Onsite pharmacy services
– And more

Our freestanding emergency room also offers other advantages for our patients’ convenience, including:

– Instant records – We provide patients with online access to their medical records, including X-rays, lab results, and EKGs for instant access in the future.

– Discharge medications – We are often able to provide 72 hours of patients’ discharge medications on location, eliminating the need for them to make an additional stop on their way home.

– Onsite labs – Our laboratory can run nearly every test that the labs in traditional ERs can, allowing for accurate results in a fraction of the time.

– Telemedicine services – This technology allows our physicians to follow up with patients “face-to-face” after their initial visit through a smartphone or tablet, potentially eliminating the need for them to make another appointment at our facility.

We also aim to make our services more convenient than those of a traditional emergency room and other medical facilities, which is why we proudly take the “waiting” out of the “waiting room.” Our patient volume is much lower than traditional ERs, so we can provide the same high standard of care in a fraction of the time, in a calmer setting for patients and their families. Though we don’t anticipate lengthy wait times for our patients, our facilities boast clean, inviting family breakrooms for family members to wait in while their loved ones are being treated.

At The Emergency Center, patients appreciate our personal approach to patient treatment and care. Rather than talking to our patients in medical terms that are nearly impossible to understand, we make sure to provide easily comprehendible information about their diagnosis and treatment options, so our patients can make informed decisions regarding their care.

Plus, because we believe that outstanding medical treatment doesn’t end when a patient walks out of our clinic, we offer telemedicine services to check on patients after their visits. Using a smartphone or tablet, our physicians can see how their patients are faring, potentially eliminating the need for an in-office follow-up visit.
