PEARLAND, Texas, June 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Neighbors Emergency Center Texarkana, TX location will begin seeing patients Tuesday, July 5 and will be the first Neighbors Emergency Center to offer medical care in a setting unlike any other emergency center in the nation. The new 8,430-square-foot center — places care services in the front — not the back — of the center, providing a transparent, patient-centric experience.
As patients arrive at the emergency center, 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.
The 24 hour emergency center design is focused on a number of striking elements. The facility is wrapped in glass and perforated aluminum metal panels. The panels subtly reflect their surroundings in a diffused pattern to highlight a sensitivity to place, while at night, they transform to a glowing lantern effect, presenting a reassuring destination for those seeking care and treatment.
"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."
The Neighbors Emergency Center Texarkana facility is located at 2001 Mall Dr., Texarkana, TX 75503. This is the second Neighbors Emergency Center in the Northeast Texas region and represents one of many new locations to open this year in Texas. Texarkana is nestled in Northeast Texas bordering Arkansas.
