Studies show that the longer you are waiting to receive care, the worse your outcomes are. That is why we are home to the only No Wait Hospital Emergency Room in the Greater Houston Area. OakBend Medical Center’s three Emergency Care Centers feature physicians with advanced training in trauma life support skills and nurses with advanced training in trauma nursing core curriculum and pediatric care. The dedicated nursing staff is credentialed in ACLS, PALS, TNCC, and ENPC. The Emergency Care Centers are affiliated with local nursing schools to provide clinical rotations for RN and EMT students of all levels. Our air ambulance has transfer agreements in place with several Texas Medical Center hospitals for the care of severely injured trauma patients and pediatric patients.
