Continues to Lead with Innovation, Providing Quick Access to Quality Emergency Care

The First Choice ER Whambulance

First Choice Emergency Room, the leading freestanding emergency room system in the United States, today announced a new program to familiarize consumers with their local ER facilities. As an innovator in health care, First Choice Emergency Room is bringing a branded Monster Truck, The First Choice ER Whambulance, to many of its facilities as an interactive means to introduce communities to the First Choice Emergency Room facilities as an alternative option should an emergency need arise.

The First Choice ER Whambulance will park outside the Kingwood facility on July 27, 2012 from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. and welcome visitors to take a photo by the vehicle, sign up to win a remote control mini-Whambulance and even take a turn at racing the remote control truck. The Whambulance also will make an appearance at this year’s Curefest on July 28 from noon to 11 p.m. at the Humble Civic Center. Complete with 66 inch tires, the converted 2005 Chevrolet Kodiak Heavy Duty Ambulance is now 14 feet tall, 13 feet wide and 25 feet long.

"We are excited to share the First Choice ER Whambulance as an innovative means to show off our Kingwood location,” said Dr. David C. Carlyle, First Choice Emergency Room's Facility Medical Director at Kingwood. “Our patients truly appreciate the almost immediate access to board-certified emergency physicians and the quality time spent with the doctors to address their emergency needs.”

The First Choice Emergency Room's most frequent patients are males 21 and under, so the Monster Truck is an interactive and highly relevant opportunity to engage with this key group, along with the larger community, and introduce them to the First Choice Emergency Room facilities.

First Choice ER physicians are board- certified and all nurses are emergency trained. The facility is equipped with state of the art diagnostic technology, including CT scanners, ultrasound machines and digital x-rays, and on-site COLA & CLIA accredited laboratories to handle emergency needs on the spot.

First Choice Emergency Room’s Kingwood facility is open 24 hours a day, seven days per week. The facility is located 2158 Northpark Drive, Kingwood, TX 77339 and can be reached at (281) 359-9020.    David C. Carlyle is the facility medical director and completed a B.S. and PhD. in physics at the University of Texas Austin and entered the University Medical Branch in Galveston. After his internship in surgery, he began to practice emergency medicine in Houston. He is among the first groups of Emergency Physicians to be Board Certified, completing his first certification in 1982.
