Timing and expertise are critical in an emergency. That’s why families in Greater Houston depend on St. Luke’s Health Emergency Departments and Baylor St. Luke’s Emergency Centers. Board-certified emergency physicians, specially trained trauma nurses, and skilled health professionals, using the most advanced diagnostic imaging and laboratory services, are available around the clock, seven days a week.
Our hospitals’ Emergency Departments attend to all emergencies—when minutes count— including heart attacks and strokes. Upon each patient’s arrival, a triage process (to assess the degree of urgency) determines the order in which all patients are seen and the most efficient care plan.
Baylor St. Luke’s Emergency Centers (Holcombe and Pearland) provide a higher level of care than non-hospital affiliated clinics and urgent care centers. We refer and transport patients to Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center in the Texas Medical Center if a higher level of care is needed.
Our goal is to provide the best medical care as quickly as possible. Patients and their families take comfort in knowing that high-quality emergency care is available at all St. Luke’s Health facilities.
