Freestanding emergency center slated to open in winter 2016

Altus Emergency Centers, a leading provider in high-quality emergency healthcare, announced last week that they are expanding into Waxahachie, which will be their fifth Texas-based facility.

Construction will soon begin on the new center, slated to open by the end of the year. The state-of-the-art emergency room will join successful centers in Baytown, Lake Jackson and Lumberton, which also serves as the regional office. A Lufkin location is currently under construction and expected to open in Spring.

“We are very excited to join the community of Waxahachie, and to bring superior emergency care to the residents there,” said Altus Emergency Centers President Kevin Herrington.

Every Altus Emergency Center is equipped with first-class equipment, including X-ray, CT scans and a diagnostic lab on-site. With physicians and nurses trained in emergency medicine, each Altus team is highly efficient in treating chest and abdominal pains, pediatric emergencies, flu symptoms, sports injuries, bone breaks and fractures, as well as all other major and minor injuries. All services are available 24/7, including weekends and holidays.

“In addition to the latest technology, we offer our patients a personalized experience, which includes minimal-to-no wait times and a friendly staff that cares for each person as they would a family member,” said Garrett Syphrett, Vice President of Operations and Development.
