August 24, 2016 – Nobody enjoys going to the emergency room, but now Addison residents have one more option for emergency care, making a potentially terrible situation a little bit better. Emergis ER opened on August 15 at 15240 Dallas Parkway in Addison. This freestanding emergency room is open 24 hours for your convenience.
“We started Emergis ER because we wanted to create a better healthcare experience for the patient,” said John Shero, CEO of Emergis ER. “An option where the patient truly comes first. It’s not just about a good bedside manner or simply caring for your patients. Anyone can do that. At Emergis ER, your emergency is our emergency.”
Emergis ER has shorter wait times than hospital ERs, although they provide the same quality of care, are fully equipped for all medical emergencies, are licensed and closely regulated and have an emergency room physician on duty at all times.
Some of the health problems that can be treated at the facility include: heart attack, open fractures, severe bleeding, severe burns, chest pains, head injury or other major trauma, one-sided weakness or numbness, loss of consciousness, severe abdominal pain, animal bites and more.
To learn about the facility a little bit more, attend the grand opening ceremony on September 24 from 9 a.m. to noon. This event is free and open to the public. There will be a bounce house and other kid-friendly activities, popcorn, the Carter Blood Mobile, free cholesterol screenings and more.
“We’re very excited to be in the Addison community, and we’re hoping these events will help us get to know some of our neighbors a little better,” added Shero.
Emergis ER is a new emergency care provider, with more ERs slated to open in Richardson and Fort Worth this year, and other locations in 2017. They have board-certified physicians, state-of-the-art equipment and a passion for improving their patients’ lives. They provide fast, quality care with a more personal connection during the entire emergency room experience. Next time you need fast help with physicians you can trust, give Emergis ER a chance – it may become your new favorite emergency room.
