Community Emergency Centers
Our hospital-based freestanding emergency centers throughout the Greater Houston area provide a more streamlined process for hospital admissions, if needed, than non-hospital affiliated clinics and urgent care centers. If needed, we refer and transport patients to the nearest CHI St. Luke’s Health hospital for direct admittance, providing the resources of a larger facility at a convenient location.
