First Choice Emergency Room, the leading operator of freestanding emergency rooms in the state of Texas, is pleased to announce the opening of its newest location in the Austin area.
Opening on Friday, May 18, 2012, the new 24-hour emergency room is located in Pflugerville, northeast of Austin. The other Austin-area First Choice Emergency Room is located in Georgetown.
"We are excited to be opening our second location in Austin," said Tom Hall, CEO of First Choice Emergency Room. "It really does reflect the public’s acceptance and appreciation for freestanding emergency rooms, where world-class customer service and medical care exceeds expectations."
The company also operates ERs in the Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston areas. This newest facility will be the fourteenth First Choice Emergency Room in the state.
Founded in 2002, First Choice Emergency Room is at the forefront of a fast-growing segment of the healthcare industry: freestanding neighborhood emergency rooms.
"The concept of freestanding emergency rooms is going to be a large part of the healthcare delivery system going forward," Hall said. “We are excited to be an important part of this growing and developing solution to healthcare delivery.”
First Choice Emergency Room offers a standard of care equal to that found in traditional ERs, but without the crowds and long wait times. All of the company's ERs feature sophisticated diagnostic equipment and on-site laboratories.
First Choice Emergency Room operates the largest network of freestanding ERs in Texas. The company has been named to Inc. Magazine's list of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States for the past two years and to DFW’s Top 100 Privately Held Businesses for the past six years.
