Last week I had to pick up my daughter from school because she had a swollen eye from what I thought was conjunctivitis or a stye eye. Imagine over the Christmas or New Year’s holiday and you catch a cold, get a stomach bug or another non serious injury or illness, what would you do?
Legacy ER and Urgent Care are open during the holidays
This holiday season, when people are out and about purchasing gifts for Christmas and preparing for the New Year, there is a good chance that someone in your family will get sick from a cold or flu and need to visit a doctor. This is a problem for those looking for emergency room and urgent care services if something comes up.
On Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, Legacy ER & Urgent Care, one of the nation’s first health care models to offer both urgent care and emergency room treatment options under one roof, will be open for business. The emergency room will be open 24/7, and its urgent care services will also be available on Christmas Eve.
With seven health care centers in Allen, Coppell, Frisco (2), Keller, McKinney and North Richland Hills, Legacy ER & Urgent Care is fully staffed and prepared to take care of all patient emergencies.
Why choose Legacy ER & Urgent Care? The average wait time for Legacy ER & Urgent Care patients is less than eight minutes, with most being seen, treated and released in less than one hour. I once took my daughter to another facility and it took about 3 hours. When you are a busy mom and you have work and other kids to pick up that long wait time means less time that your child could be recuperating in bed. My daughter is ok, but I would have much rather spent less of my time seeking urgent care at Legacy ER & Urgent Care.
Patients only pay for the care they need at Legacy ER & Urgent Care. Billing is always based on whether a condition was an urgent care visit (more than 70 percent fall into this category) or an emergency. You won’t be billed for an emergency, no matter what time you go in, unless you actually receive emergency care.
I am glad there is one so close to me with all of their many locations. To see a full list of Legacy ER & Urgent Care locations, please visit legacyer.com/locations
