If you’re having an emergency, the last thing you need is a long drive over congested streets just to get to an emergency room – or a long wait when you finally arrive.
First Choice ER, based in Lewisville, Texas, is on a mission to change all that, with the help of investments by Medical Properties Trust.
This facility in Alvin, Texas, which opened in March 2014, is strategically located at a convenient intersection in this suburb of the Houston. Open 24 hours a day, every day of the year, First Choice - Alvin is staffed with board certified physicians, radiology technicians and nurses with emergency room experience.
Usually, there is no waiting in this state-of-the-art facility, which is equipped a 16-slice CT scanner, X-ray machine, ultrasound equipment and its own lab. Treatment rooms are spacious and private – including one decorated to comfort children and another outfitted specifically to address women’s health issues.
CT scans can be completed and analyzed in 20 to 30 minutes, and a full cardiac workup on someone having chest pains can be accomplished in about an hour.
“This is clearly a trend across the country,” says MPT’s Executive Vice President and CFO Steve Hamner. “It’s responsive medicine – responding to people’s demand for an alternative to hours-long waits in an emergency room.”
