ALLEN, Texas, Nov. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legacy ER & Urgent Care (LER) is celebrating the one-year anniversary of its Allen, Texas facility, having served more than 10,000 patients in and around Allen over the past year.
"We've had a great first year in Allen," said Dr. Jay Woody, founding partner and chief medical officer of Legacy ER & Urgent Care. "Our success here further proves that our hybrid approach to healthcare truly makes a difference. By offering both ER and urgent care services at each location, we cut down on the confusion and the unnecessary charges created by other standalone ERs—while also providing efficient and quality care to our patients."
The company's unique model represents an emerging category in the healthcare industry, and is noted for its ability to centralize everything from paperwork, to labs, to X-Rays, to CT scans. It also provides less stress on LER's doctors and staff, giving them more personal time to spend with patients and raising the overall quality of care. And it's an approach that is working, because LER has expansion plans in store for 2015.
Part of Legacy ER & Urgent Care's go-to-market strategy in Allen has been an intense community relations campaign, a plan that also worked well when the company launched its first facility in Frisco, Texas in 2008. From flu shot clinics, to free physicals for Allen ISD athletes, to support for the Boy Scouts and high school medical internships, LER has dug its roots deep into the community.
In addition, the architectural design of LER's Allen facility has caught the eyes of architectural luminaries across the nation. The building, designed by 5G Studio, has won multiple awards over the past year, including the 2014 American Institute of Architects' Healthcare Design Award, the 2014 International Interior Design Association (IIDA) Healthcare Design Award, and the 2013 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Unbuilt Design Award. And they are currently a finalist for the 2014 Interior Design Best of Year Award.
