Emergency Services

A trip to the emergency room means you’re already under stress. You need expert care, and you need it fast. The CHI St. Joseph Health Emergency Care team provides high quality urgent, emergency, and trauma care, and offers emergency transportation services as well, while caring for your specific needs. Your family’s health is too important to trust to anyone but the CHI St. Joseph Health Emergency Center and our Level II Trauma Center.

From heart attack or stroke, to broken bones, or new baby sickness, our board certified emergency services doctors work hard to ensure your comfort and care is the best it can be. Our emergency rooms are staffed by board certified emergency physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners, nurses and clinical staff who know how to take action calmly, professionally and confidently in emergency and trauma situations.

With some of the best, most advanced treatments available, our team is ready for all levels of emergency. Our doctors and staff are also some of the most knowledgeable, experienced medical professionals. The trauma program at CHI St. Joseph Health is a verified Level II Trauma Center by the American College of Surgeons and a designated Level II Trauma Center by the Texas Department of State Health Services. This verification and designation makes CHI St. Joseph Health Regional Hospital the highest-level trauma center in the region – meaning that we are equipped to handle the most critically ill and injured patients.

After developing the only Level II Trauma Program in the region, we’ve now invested in a new 24,500 square foot Emergency & Trauma Center to provide residents of the Brazos Valley with even better access to advanced emergency care services.

When time is crucial, we beat the clock. CHI St. Joseph Health’s new Emergency & Trauma Center allows our emergency teams to be even more efficient when treating serious incidents. We’ve created an environment that streamlines every aspect of treatment. By constructing an all-new facility we’ve been able to design the Emergency & Trauma Center specifically to meet the growing needs of our community while including the latest advances in emergency and trauma care and improving efficiency.

According to CDC data, CHI St. Joseph Health’s emergency department cares for patients more acutely ill than national averages. That’s why we refuse to settle in the comfort of our achievements. We are fully committed to continual improvement– and fully prepared to help.
