Emergency care

Emergency care is the treatment of unexpected, severe medical injuries or infections. It is typically delivered in an emergency room or an ambulance. Our emergency medicine physicians stabilize your condition as quickly as possible to prepare you for the next step of care or discharge.

Emergency room (ER) care in McKinney, Texas

Emergencies can happen anywhere, at any time. Physicians, nurses and technicians provide quality care when you need it the most at Medical City McKinney.

We specialize in all types of emergency medicine—from broken bones to life-threatening injuries or illnesses.

At Medical City McKinney, we work quickly to assess patients from the moment they walk through the door.

Our 21-bed ER at Medical City McKinney offers a Clinical Decision Unit (CDU), where patients receive careful observation for up to 23 hours.
