Offering around the clock accessibility to emergency care, Methodist Hospital’s freestanding emergency room in Westover Hills is celebrating their one year anniversary. The ER has treated more than 6,000 patients in and around San Antonio over the past year.
The emergency-trained staff treats urgent and emergent situations such as patients suffering from heart attacks, broken bones, flu-like symptoms, and anything else a person would normally go to a hospital ER to treat. The facility delivers rapid care, averaging 7 minutes between the patient’s arrival and speaking to a physician. To date, the ER has cared for, stabilized and transported over 400 patients requiring Methodist Hospital’s acute care.
Methodist ER | Westover Hills is close, convenient, fast, and equipped with specific on-site diagnostic equipment including a 64-slice CT scanner and a dedicated x-ray suite. The 24/7 ER features 12 all-private treatment rooms and a full range of services such as radiology and a full-service laboratory. The experienced team of physicians, skilled ER nurses, medical technicians, and front office staff are ready to provide you and your family with the care you deserve when you need it most.
“We are beyond proud with what we have achieved over the past year,” commented Miriam Pendon, VP of Emergency Services for Methodist Hospital. “Westover Hills and surrounding communities needed and deserved a trusted ER close to home with 24/7 access to care. We are honored to meet the needs of that growing community and know we have made a big difference for those residents.
