High-Quality ER Care In AConvenient Environment

We founded Excel ER as a freestanding emergency room where patients could receive immediate care that was both high-quality and convenient. Time is crucial when it comes to critical health issues, but at common urgent care clinics, patients can become lost in the shuffle, forced to wait in long lines and receive lackluster care. Here, our team makes every minute count.

Upon entering our facility, you'll quickly find that delays are a thing of the past. Patients are seen and assessed immediately upon walking in, and you'll be sure to enjoy our calm, comfortable environment as we do our work. Our skilled physicians and nurses will make sure you receive the help you need as quickly as possible, and our advanced technology (including EKGs, CT scans, digital X-rays, ultrasounds, and more) will help to make the process that much smoother, saving you valuable time. You'll find that you truly are in the best of both worlds - a skilled and upscale environment that avoids the common pitfalls and inconveniences of hospital-based ERs.

With a wide array of services at our disposal, our professionals are able to treat both adults and children for virtually any emergency issue you could come up with. From the flu to broken bones to burns, we have the experience and skill needed to lead you to a comfortable outlook. Plus, if our physicians determine that you or your family member requires the services of a hospital, we can immediately arrange a transfer and coordinate with surgeons to ensure you get the treatment you need. We want to provide you and your family with the excellent and attentive emergency care you deserve. At Excel ER, you know you're in good hands.

Frequently Asked Questions

At this time, the regulatory body for Medicare & Medicaid services, CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services), does not recognize freestanding emergency centers, such as Excel ER; therefore CMS does not allow for Medicare or Medicaid payments, which would also include any supplements to Medicare.
A freestanding emergency room is a full service, state-licensed, and 24/7 emergency room that, as its name implies, is not directly connected to a hospital. It offers essentially the same services and functions, but with dramatically reduced wait times and a much more comfortable setting than traditional ERs.
Not at all! We offer virtually the same rates as traditional hospital-based ERs. However, we provide a distinct advantage to patients in that we avoid the overhead and sway of extra administrators associated with those ERs.

We are not providers in any health benefit plan provider network, by state law however, emergent medical conditions require insurance carriers to process your ER visit at in-network benefits levels. The Texas Department of Insurance Code, Section 1301.155 requires all insurance companies to pay ER facilities "at the insured’s in-network benefit level" (i.e., use in-network deductibles, co-pays, and co-insurance rates) for all emergency services. No person can be penalized for receiving treatment at a Freestanding ER due to the implementation of emergency care being recognized as an essential healthcare benefit by the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Currently, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) does not recognize Freestanding Emergency Departments. This means we cannot accept Medicare, Medicaid, or Tricare at this time. We are working with the Texas Association of Freestanding Emergency Centers (TAFEC) to change this status.

For payments we accept cash, personal checks and major credit cards.
