Hospital Emergency Rooms
All Houston Methodist hospitals offer a 24/7 emergency room to treat critical and life-threatening injuries and illnesses. Although urgent care requires a focus on the condition in an emergency situation, we also practice leading medicine in our emergency services. This is our commitment to provide overall excellence, integration of technology, community service, patient satisfaction and accountability in our hospitals.
All Houston Methodist hospital ERs have a Fast Track Unit adjacent to them; this area is designed for patients who have minor emergencies or for patients who need observation and treatment:
Grouping minor emergencies in one area allows patients to be seen more quickly and efficiently, shortening the time you spend in the ER.
We can treat patients who come to the emergency room for a range of injuries and illnesses:
We also provide a broad range of emergency medical services at our standalone emergency care centers across the Greater Houston area.
