Learn About Our Emergency Response Team
At Concho Valley ER, we believe that emergency medical care is not a privilege, but a commodity that all patients in need should be able to access. That’s why our facility is staffed with the emergency care expertise that the community of San Angelo deserves. Together, we provide our patients decades of experience and an unparalleled level of support. As any reliable emergency care facility should be, our team is staffed with the following members:
Our physicians are in charge of directing the care provided to every patient, and they have additional experience in emergency medicine. This means that they have the education and background needed to treat a wide variety of medical conditions. Oftentimes, emergency care physicians are the first providers to diagnose chronic diseases like diabetes and asthma, but they will refer the patient to a trusted primary care provider to manage the condition. Working in urgent care is rewarding for the physician as well. It gives them the opportunity to work on a variety of ailments, and to treat each patient with individualized attention and care.
As the old saying goes, “A nurse is compassion in scrubs.” The level of care and compassion you will find from the nurses at CVER proves this saying true. Our nurses are the heart of our facility, and we would not be able to provide the care we do without their services. Nurses are responsible for essential duties like administering prescribed medications or treatments, drawing blood samples, inserting IVs, and much more. Overall, the goal of nurses in an emergency care setting is to treat the specific medical issue at hand, whatever it might be.
X-ray technicians are highly trained in the area of medical imaging. Our x-ray technicians provide care for patients while they are undergoing radiographic procedures, which are used to diagnose and treat various diseases in the body. Responsibilities of an x-ray technician include preparing patients for imaging procedures, operating equipment, and interpreting the results of an imaging scan. X-ray technicians are particularly helpful in our emergency care facility because of their ability to administer rapid treatment to patients and keeping the patients comfortable and safe.
Medical assistants are the right-hand trustees of our organization. They perform necessary tasks like taking vital signs, obtaining patient medical history, and assisting the other members of the team in what ever ways might be needed for the patient. Our medical assistants are also able to walk you through the finances of your treatment and help you understand the best route for you.
Our state-of-the-art facility is equipped with the most advanced imaging and diagnostic equipment on the market. Some of the technologies we are fortunate to have in our facility include:
- Advanced diagnostic imaging
Advanced diagnostic imaging procedures include an MRI, a CT, an ultrasound, and nuclear medicine imaging like a positron emission tomography. Advanced diagnostic imaging is used to detect diseases and conditions. Our goal is to detect these diseases in their early stages, provide the necessary relief, and refer the patient to a trusted provider who will continue to care for the condition in non-emergency situations.
- Other diagnostic equipment
Our diagnostic medical equipment is used to help us measure and observe a patient’s health in order to diagnose and treat. Examples of treatment equipment that we use in the diagnostic process are infusion pumps, medical lasers, and surgical machines.
- Full facility laboratory
When our patients come to us for emergency medical services, they are seeking answers. Our full facility laboratory is the place where we can find those answers. We use the laboratory to perform tests on clinical specimens and obtain information about the patient’s overall health. Because of our laboratory, we are able to move forward with treatments with accuracy and precision, addressing the patient’s individual needs.
When you enter our emergency care facility, you will notice that we are not like the traditional medical offices or hospitals you might be accustomed to. You will not have to suffer through the long wait times and inconveniences that often come with traditional hospital environments. Our facility space is warm and inviting, and our experienced team of physicians, skilled ER nurses, medical technicians, and medical staff will give you the care you deserve in your time of need.
