Emergency Department

Our emergency department provides round-the-clock care when you need it most. Designated as a Level IV Trauma Center by the state of Texas, our department is staffed by board-certified physicians 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week.

Our emergency nurses are ALL TNCC (Trauma Nursing Core Curriculum) Certified, with Basic Life Support, Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support training.

We have agreements in place with area medical transport services, ground and air, so patients can be transferred to specialty care as needed.  Agreements are also in place for quick access to anti-venom treatment.  A supply of blood products is in stock and additional units can be accessed quickly.  The hospital provides full laboratory and radiology support.

The goal of the emergency team is to stabilize emergent patients as quickly and completely as possible before transferring them for any needed specialty care.
