PEARLAND, Texas, Aug. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Neighbors Emergency Center Bellaire, TX location will start seeing patients at its new location Wednesday, August 10. The new center is located at 5413 S. Rice Ave., Houston TX 77081. Bellaire is home to the first Neighbors Emergency Center which opened in 2009.
The new Bellaire emergency center places care services in the front – not the back – of this facility, offering a transparent, patient-centered experience. When patients arrive at Neighbors, they will be greeted by caregivers located at the reception desk, allowing a first-sight triage and assessment of patients. Critically ill or injured patients are taken directly into treatment rooms. The examination areas are in close proximity, instead of being hidden in the back.
"This is a fundamental culture change in how we operate our existing centers and how emergency centers across the country operate today," said Setul G. Patel, MD, MBA, FAAEM, CEO, Neighbors Health, LLC. "With the new design, we can accomplish every aspect of our care delivery, including concern of the critically ill, privacy matters, infection control and enhanced patient flow."
