Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano understands that a long wait in the Emergency Room can be stressful and inconvenient. That's why the hospital has developed a 30-Minute Promise, a commitment that every patient in the emergency room is seen by a physician within 30 minutes of check-in.*
Located at West Parker Road and the Dallas North Tollway, the Texas Health Plano emergency room is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, providing services for patients of all ages. Upon arrival, patients are greeted by a nurse who performs a brief evaluation to identify those with the most urgent needs. Some fast-track patients with lower acuity complaints may be seen by a physician assistant.
Although wait-times vary depending on the seriousness of a patient's condition, the hospital's 30-Minute Promise alleviates the worry that comes with a long wait.
Convenience and Comfort
Beyond the Texas Health Plano 30-Minute Promise, patients appreciate the extra conveniences and comforts in the hospital's emergency room:
- All private rooms
- Flat panel televisions
- Free Wi-Fi
