First Choice Emergency Room, the leading operator of freestanding emergency rooms in the state of Texas, today announced the opening of its newest location in the Greater Houston area.
Opening on Friday, February 24, the new 24-hour emergency room is located in Kingwood, just west of Woodland Hills on Northpark Drive.

"Our staff is trained in the highest level of emergency care," Covert said. "All of the company's physicians are board-certified emergency physicians, and all of the nurses are trained in emergency care. It's the high level of medical care you should expect, but with one important difference from a traditional ER – at First Choice Emergency Room we provide the personal attention we believe patients deserve."
