Emergency Care When You Need It

Around the clock … Around the corner

The STHS ER Monte Cristo is open 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, unlike most urgent care centers and clinics that are open just 8 to 16 hours per day. The Monte Cristo ER is staffed with the same medical personnel and equipped with the same diagnostic technology available in South Texas Health System’s hospital-based emergency rooms.

Emergency medical conditions include heart attacks, strokes, respiratory distress, head injuries, abdominal pain and orthopedic injuries. These conditions are beyond the scope of treatment for most urgent care centers or night clinics. STHS ER Monte Cristo also provides pediatric ER services in a dedicated treatment room.

Treatment is available for a range of emergency medical conditions, including:

  • Chest pain
  • Broken bones
  • Minor lacerations
  • Flu and other ailments

The emergency room is staffed with credentialed emergency room physicians. These neighborhood centers can provide stabilizing treatment equivalent to any hospital-based ER.
