Patient-centered Care Facility Led by Team with over 26 Years of ER Experience
Austin, TX, December 16, 2014 – Five Star ER announced today that construction is in the final stages and on schedule for the opening of its first freestanding emergency department in Round Rock, Texas, on Thursday, January 15, 2015. The center, located at 1700 Round Rock Avenue (RM 620), about one mile west of Interstate 35, is owned and operated by Emergency Service Partners (ESP), a physician-owned group providing emergency medical care in emergency rooms throughout Central Texas since 1988. Five Star ER, a state-licensed facility, will be open 24/7/365.
Five Star ER provides the same high-quality medical care patients seek in a traditional hospital-based emergency room, differentiating the patient treatment experience through a highly personalized approach within a family-friendly, healing environment and comfortable setting. The approach to care has been streamlined to make each minute count, moving patients into a private room and in front of a board-certified physician within minutes.
“In an emergency situation, prospective patients and caregivers want to know they can trust the advice, treatment and care they receive, because their life or the life of their loved one may depend on it,” said Dr. Brian Aldred, Medical Director, Five Star ER. “From treating life-threatening conditions to minor emergencies, our board-certified physicians and experienced emergency room staff will operate as one unit—physicians, nurses and technicians—working with the patient. We believe our staff’s ER experience, coupled with our personalized service approach, will set us apart and provide an unequaled patient experience.”
The 9,200 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility features 11 private exam rooms including two trauma rooms, an onsite laboratory, pharmacy, and imaging services for rapid diagnosis and treatment. Diagnostic imaging capabilities include digital CT scans and x-rays, as well as formal and bedside ultrasounds. Five Star ER also provides a variety of laboratory services, including complete blood counts and metabolic panels, cardiac enzymes analysis, and blood gas profiling.
The design of the facility, guided by Five Star ER’s award-winning team, focuses on the needs of both patients and the healthcare workers who serve them. Covered entryways, ample parking, modern lounge furnishings, secure Wi-Fi and charging stations, along with a dedicated children’s play area work together to create a relaxing, comfortable setting for patients, family and friends.
