Day or night, you never have to drive far for the high level of emergency care you expect and deserve.

The Experts Are Here to Care for You
The latest technology certainly makes our emergency department more efficient, but nothing can replace the experience and compassion of our staff. Our skilled nurses and board certified emergency medicine physicians make a point to see that patients are treated appropriately and promptly.

And if the need arises, everything we need to care for you and your family, from comprehensive imaging, to lab and support services, is available at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Centennial.
In addition, our hospital has been fully accredited by the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care and the Joint Commission for meeting or exceeding a broad range of stringent criteria.
