Elevated Care for Texans at Exceptional Emergency Center at Fort Worth & Eastchase

Welcome to the vibrant and dynamic community of Fort Worth, nestled in the heart of North Texas. Fort Worth seamlessly marries its rich Western heritage with modern urban living, creating a city that’s as diverse as it is welcoming. As the fifth-largest city in Texas, Fort Worth offers a plethora of opportunities for both residents and visitors to explore its cultural gems, economic potential, and natural beauty.

Famous for its unmistakable blend of cowboy culture and cosmopolitan flair, Fort Worth embodies the spirit of the Old West while embracing the amenities of a thriving urban center. The historic Stockyards District stands as a testament to the city’s Western roots, boasting cattle drives, rodeos, and authentic Texan experiences. Meanwhile, the Cultural District showcases world-class museums, such as the Kimbell Art Museum and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, catering to the most refined artistic tastes.

Beyond its cultural attractions, Fort Worth boasts a diverse economy with a strong emphasis on industries like healthcare, education, and technology. The city’s proximity to Dallas and its major transportation hubs further contribute to its position as a vital economic hub in Texas. Residents benefit from a cost of living that’s relatively lower than some other major cities, allowing them to enjoy a high quality of life without sacrificing comfort.

Fort Worth’s commitment to community and family is evident in its range of family-friendly activities and neighborhoods. From the Fort Worth Zoo, one of the oldest zoos in the United States, to the Trinity Trails system that winds through the city, there’s no shortage of outdoor and recreational options for all ages. The city’s warm and friendly atmosphere, coupled with its diverse opportunities, make Fort Worth a truly exceptional place to live, work, and explore.

    No Surprise Medical Bills!

    We’ve got good news: the “No Surprises Act” took effect at the beginning of this year! Most unexpected medical charges from out-of-network providers are banned by this legislation, meaning you are now protected from surprise billing. 

    The protections will work similarly to those established by the state of Texas, and the new federal rules will apply to all private insurers, including those provided through the Affordable Care Act.

    Insurance companies are also required to provide the same coverage regardless of whether you receive medical attention at an in-network or out-of-network facility.

    The Exceptional Emergency Room staff and physicians care about you and your loved ones. We are here 24/7 for all your emergency care needs.

    1. If you are experiencing fever, shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness, weakness, numbness, sensory loss, or any other emergent medical problems, please call 911 or seek medical care immediately at your nearest Emergency Room.
    2. To provide the highest quality emergency medical care to our communities, we are directing all routine COVID testing to outpatient community resources.
    3. Testing through local resources, including your primary care doctor, urgent care, walk-in clinic, or local health department, is appropriate under the following circumstances:
      1. If you have been exposed to a person known to have COVID, and you do not have symptoms, we recommend that you self-quarantine at home and seek testing 4-5 days after exposure. It often takes this long for the infection to be detected by routine lab testing.
      2. If you have no symptoms or very mild symptoms, outpatient testing is also typically appropriate.
      3. Please follow this link for local COVID testing resources.
    4. If you have tested negative, you should still self-quarantine for 14 days from the day of suspected exposure as it can take anywhere from 2-14 days to come down with symptoms of this infection.
    5. Please kindly limit your phone time with our Emergency Rooms as the phone lines are needed to communicate with other health care entities and to provide patients their test results. Thank you for your understanding during this trying time.
