We are not associated with the new Emergency Room calling themselves "Heights Emergency Room", "Houston Heights Emergency Room", or "Village ER" owned and operated by Village ER. For information on why this matters, we encourage you to visit the following news article from Click2Houston. Read the article here..
The Heights Emergency Room is a free standing, full service ER. Since we're not connected to a Hospital, you can enjoy a great emergency room experience without the hassles of a traditional Hospital ER. Our Houston ER can perform most of the procedures a traditional ER can. And the best part? There is no wait time at any of our facilities.
Unlike a traditional Hospital ER, our facilities don't have long waits to be seen by a Doctor.
We work with all major private insurance plans. We also have self-pay available.
At our ERs, there is always a Board Certified ER Physician on Staff to take care of you.
Here at The Heights Emergency Room we understand the additional needs that come with children's care. Our dedicated oversized pediatric rooms have additional seating for family and siblings. We take special effort to involve the parents in their child's care. We carry multiple topical anesthetics to help ease the pain of laceration repairs or IV needle sticks. We also keep an extensive pharmacy stocked with pediatric medications just in case your child needs it. We also offer procedural sedation for children to make painful procedures much more tolerable for little patients and their parents. Situations where procedural sedation can be used in children include laceration repair, abscess drainage, spinal taps, and setting broken bones. All these procedures are routine for the staff at The Heights ER.
All of our doctors at The Heights Emergency Room are Board Certified in Emergency Medicine by the American Board of Emergency Medicine. As such, the physicians undergo extensive training in evaluating and treating children with both urgent and emergent conditions. They all have experience working in pediatric emergency departments and trauma centers.
Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to accept Government Insurances, such as Medicare, Medicaid, and Tri-Care in addition to Ambetter Insurance.
