Emergency hospital coming to Cedar Park
Temple-based Scott and White Healthcare has announced they will open an emergency hospital later this month in Cedar Park north of Austin.
The hospital will be open 24/7, 365 days a year and will be fully staffed by licensed emergency personnel. It will include seven beds, diagnostic imaging, a laboratory, and an eight-bed inpatient unit.
Emergency-only hospitals are a relatively new concept to Central Texas, but one that Austin area residents have embraced in recent years, leading to rapid expansion.
