Besides the best personalized ER care, Neighbors Emergency Center Texarkana has also brought jobs to the local economy by hiring local board-certified physicians and medical teams with emergency room experience that can treat all adult and pediatric emergencies.
"I'm proud of the staff and physicians we have here at our Texarkana Neighbors location," continued Spigener. "Everyone has pitched in and worked very hard to help make this first month successful. Every day I feel like our roots grow deeper in the community as people discover that the folks taking care of them truly are the same ones they see around town, at church and at local school events and such ... genuinely Neighbors who care about this area and the people who call it home."
