We created Austin Emergency Centers (AEC) to bring concierge-level, quality emergency care to the local community. Our patients enjoy the ambience and aesthetics of a high-end private practice, followed by an evaluation by an experienced, emergency room physician, within minutes of entry to our facilities. We offer fast, concierge-level care, when minutes count.All testing is done quickly, without the delays associated with traditional, hospital-based emergency departments. In contrast to an urgent care clinic, AEC is a freestanding emergency room. Our facilities use the state-of-the-art equipment and technology of a modern hospital emergency room, including CT scans, bedside emergency ultrasound, digital radiology, and a full clinical laboratory ─ all in the comfort of an upscale clinical environment, without the typical inconveniences associated with a hospital-based setting.In addition to our board-certified emergency room physicians, our centers are staffed with experienced emergency room nurses, CT and X-ray technicians, EMT technicians, and a courteous front office staff. At AEC, we work as a team to treat you with compassion, speed, and quality medical care. Our doctors strive to spend time with our patients, making an extra effort to answer all questions prior to discharge.Austin Emergency Center is the first locally-owned ER in Austin, the first independently-run ER in Austin, and our two locations are the first freestanding ERs in Central and South Austin.
