Enter to Potentially Win a FREE $50 Gift Card for Grandma or Grandpa!

Calling all grandparents!

First of all, they start out being our parents.  Then, when we as their kids grow up and they become gurus of our own children through patience, generosity, unconditional love, empathy, and always the best cooking.

They are called grandparents. 

Today, we would like to show our immense appreciation for all grandparents of all ages out there!

Show your grandparents some love and appreciation!

At Altus, we are giving away a FREE $50 gift card to give to a grandparent. 

We are so proud to be able to help them with the best ER care around to keep them around for much longer as we take Medicare.  In fact, we are not only taking Medicare in Altus Baytown ER (as the preferred ER of Altus Baytown Hospital), as well as Altus Lumberton Hospital but now, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are temporarily allowed as well to see Medicare patients in our Lake Jackson & Waxahachie locations.  What does that mean to your grandparent?  Basically, any Medicare patients can now choose to receive emergency treatment at a more convenient location, in a safe place with NO WAIT TIMES, and personalized attention by board-certified in-house emergency physicians.

Proudly Serving Midlothian, One of the Best Communities in Texas

Proudly Serving Midlothian, One of the Best Communities in Texas

What does it take to be considered one of the best places to live and raise a family in Texas? For starters, you need to have excellent schools, lots of fun activities for the whole family, safe neighborhoods, and outstanding neighbors.

No wonder Midlothian made the shortlist of best places to live in Texas!

This historically rich town has beautiful neighborhoods that offer residents a rural feel while still being close to city amenities. There are also great job opportunities in the “Cement Capital of Texas” that, paired with their great educational system, paints a bright future for the city.

The one thing the city of Midlothian was missing was top-rated emergency care. But that all changed in 2017 when Altus Emergency Centers opened their location in Waxahachie, providing world-class emergency care to all surrounding communities, including the residents of Midlothian.

Family Values and Top-Rated Medical Care Go Hand in Hand

At Altus Emergency Centers, we are proud to serve the community of Midlothian.  Much like the residents of this beautiful town, we built our organization on sound family values.

Our values are what inspired us to do things a little differently. We hire locally because we firmly believe nobody will take better care of you than family. When you walk through our doors, you will be greeted by the most talented medical professionals who happen to be your neighbors as well.

At Altus, we provide more than just excellent medical care; we provide support for our patients and their families. We work with you every step of the way to help get you back to health in an affordable way.

We hope that Midlothian would keep trusting us for your medical care!

Know Where to Go in Case of an Emergency.

Why Altus Emergency Centers is Your Best Option

At Altus Emergency Centers, we know We Are Big Enough to Matter, but also Small Enough to Care. That is why we go above and beyond to provide fast, personalized, convenient, and affordable emergency care to our patients.

Altus has redefined what it means to be a real emergency room, which is why it’s hard to compare us to anyone else.

 

When you visit our facility, you can expect to receive:

  • Top-rated medical attention provided by local doctors and nurses that genuinely care about you and your family’s wellbeing
  • Minimal wait times. You will see a medical professional within minutes not hours
  • Private rooms where you will be safe and comfortable
  • State of the art facility with the most advanced technology
  • Affordable care

Location

We are just 10-minutes away!

As a patient, you shouldn’t have to leave your area to receive quality emergency medical attention.

That is why we made sure our facility is just a short drive away from you. We understand all too well how crucial early treatment is. Quick diagnosis and fast access to treatment can mark the difference between a full recovery and long-lasting health issues or even death.

Use our online check-in form to let us know you are on your way, and our medical staff will be ready and waiting for you at the door when you arrive.

Quick, Convenient, Quality Emergency Care for All

We provide world-class emergency care to patients of all ages, including children. Our certified doctors and nurses are available 24/7 every day of the year.

We promise there will never be a time when you come in, and we won’t have a physician on staff ready to care for you.

Another one of our guarantees is no wait lines. At Altus, you won’t spend hours in the waiting room. Instead, when you arrive, you will be transferred to a private room where a doctor will come to examine you within minutes.

The staff of Altus Waxahachie is always on call and ready to offer a helping hand, that is why you will never see indifference in our ER.

We understand the urgency of your situation, and we will do everything to offer care and support and get you back to feeling happy and healthy again.

Affordable Care

World-class emergency care doesn’t have to be expensive.

At Altus, one of the ways we’ve revolutionized ER services is by taking control of the entire billing process.

We’ve hired doctors to work directly with us, which allowed us to negotiate physician fees down, making it more affordable for you.

We’ve simplified our billing process to make it easier for you and your family to understand your bill.

At Altus ER Waxachie, we believe in simplicity, transparency, and honesty. Unlike other ER’s we won’t send you separate bills for services such as radiology and lab tests.

You will only receive two bills from us; one will detail all the ER services you received. The other will show the doctor’s fees, which, as we said before, are significantly lower than those charged at other ER’s.

Have Questions About Your Bill? We Can Help!

If you receive a medical bill from us and have any questions associated with it, we urge you to please reach out to our friendly, expert Patient Advocate Lendall Baker.

He is here to help ensure you get the most from your insurance coverage.  Please call or email him now if you have recently received a medical bill. 

Over the last three years, Altus ER Waxahachie has become an active member of the community of Midlothian.

We are grateful and honored for the opportunity you have given us to serve you, and we look forward to growing alongside the needs of the community.

Altus ER During COVID-19 – Real Patient Testimonies

Visiting Altus ER During COVID-19, What Has it Been Like?

From the beginning, when the COVID-19 virus first appeared, there has been a whirlwind of controversy and many more questions than answers.  The world went through a massive realization that we are all interconnected.  We are not alone as what happens in one part of the world can ultimately affect the whole.  However, it has also been a time of coming together in a tremendous effort to safeguard our families, friends, and the whole of humanity.  Suddenly, unsung heroes began to spring up all over the world, those on the front line, our first-responders and healthcare workers.  Likewise, there have been individuals, organizations, and businesses who also stood up and reached out to help others during these trying times.

 

How can you tell if an ER is a safe, caring, effective place to go these days?

 

Since it’s inception, the Altus Health family has strived together through the years, helping to give our surrounding communities access to quality ER care.  Now more than ever before, standing alongside the community has become crucial.  We take a look back from March 2020 to present-day to find out what it has been like for our patients to visit Altus ER During COVID-19.

What we found was eyeopening.  Healthcare workers focus on helping each patient get well during that crucial moment that they come into the ER.  Very rarely do they get to understand the difference that those critical moments made in someone’s life.

Thank you to each and every patient that has trusted in us as a safe ER to come and get care.  We vow to continue to work 24/7/365 days to keep you safe and well!  Today, we share some of the real testimonials of patients visiting Altus ER during COVID-19.

Visiting Altus ER Lake Jackson During COVID-19
Real Patient Testimonials

“The moment I walked in the receptionist greeted me immediately and checked me in. I was taken back to a room as soon as the receptionist finished the check-in process. Dr. Rodriguez came into the exam room to assess me within 5 minutes. He devised a plan quickly which started with an X-ray. X-ray was completed and read within 15-20 min. The nurse and tech who took part in my care were both very kind as well. I feel I was properly diagnosed and given the appropriate medications and instructions. I definitely give them FIVE stars.”  –  Cherie Bates

 

“The doctors and staff were very professional and courteous. I recently had surgery at another location and went in to Altus for trouble urinating. Doc did a CT scan and found an abcess. He immediately sent me back into the hospital where my surgery was done. Great catch doc!!!”  –  Tonya Johnson

 

“I was treated very, very well. I had a boil on the back of neck that turned into a raging staph infection that they called Cellulitis. They put me in the corner room, with a very comfortable recliner and started the I/V anti biotics. Within 10 very comfortable hours most of the swelling had gone down and I was feeling much, much better than when I arrived, so they sent me on home. I’d highly recommend them for ANY KIND of urgent Care needs you may have.  i Wednesday scared to Death of being exposed to the Corona, no worries. They keep it very clean.”  –  James Smith

 

“Great service, was seen very quickly and not to pricey if you dont have insurance.. Doctors and nurses actually know what they’re doing, figured out the problem in less then an hour”  –  Jasmine Hodge

 

“I was not expecting to stay overnight at all. Dr. Obi tried to get me in the hospital but there were no beds anywhere. Needless to say it all happened fast. But Leslie and Tonya were amazing!!! They basically stayed with me all night. They made sure I had everything I needed. I can’t thank them enough. The entire staff that evening were great.”  –  Marbella Hooper

Real Patient Testimonials

“The front lady was so kind! This was my first time taking my child and they were great! Sweet and thorough nurse who did a great job explaining the process to my 3-year-old and the doctor was so attentive and sweet. I highly recommend this Emergency center!”  –  Christen Arroyave

 

“This is a great place to go for an emergency. This a stand-alone ER. The nurses, doctors, X-ray Tech and receptionist are all very polite and business like. I was diagnosed with bronchitis. Without any hesitation, I was asked pertinent questions to exclude Covid-19. I was given a chest X-ray to complete verification. I did not need a Covid test. I appreciate all the professionalism that I witnessed. I recommend Altus in Waxahachie. Please note that a bad cough and heavy chest does not always mean Covid-19. A.S.”  –  Anne Sutherland

We Stand with Our Community

We Stand with Our Community

These past few months as a community, we’ve faced some hard times with the spread of COVID-19. The pandemic affected us all in one way or another; our children can’t attend school; many workplaces closed down, and we had to learn about social distancing.

Through this entire ordeal, Altus Emergency Centers has remained open, taking care of our friends and neighbors, and we plan to continue doing so.

That is why we wanted to share with you how we are helping our communities cope with the public health crisis and stay safe and healthy.

Can You Get Tested for COVID-19 At Altus Emergency Centers?

The first thing we wanted to address is our testing capabilities. As of right now, the Department Of State And Health Services (DSHS) does not allow freestanding ERs, such as Altus Emergency Centers, to do outpatient testing.

Therefore, if you come to us with symptoms related to COVID-19, we can examine you as an ER visit and take a sample and send it to an authorized laboratory for testing if the physician deems necessary.

How Altus Emergency Centers Is Helping to Care for the Community

In these uncertain times, we understand how scary it is to deal with a medical emergency, especially if you have symptoms associated with COVID-19.

We want you to know Altus Emergency Centers is here for you, and we will not leave you alone in your time of need.

Know Where to Go in Case of an Emergency.

Free Medical Screenings

All patients who visit our emergency centers receive a free medical screening by one of our physicians. After the evaluation and based on symptoms, the physician will make a medical decision to order or not order a COVID-19 test.

As a patient, you have the right to agree or disagree to be seen by a physician. If you agree, your visit is considered an emergency room visit.  For those with commercial insurance, the CARE Act ensures no out of pocket expenses related to the diagnostic test.  Altus Emergency Centers are required to follow these federal rules.

Partnerships for Non-Emergency Needs

It’s not always easy for us as patients to determine if our symptoms or injury requires emergency attention or not, especially when we are scared.

You don’t have to worry; you can come to any one of our centers and let our medical staff evaluate your situation.

At Altus Emergency Centers, we don’t just take care of your health; we also take care of your wallet. We have partnered with local urgent care and other community facilities to provide more cost-effective options for those interested with a non-emergency need.

Additionally, we also can refer patients without symptoms to our county resources.

We are living in difficult, stressful, and scary times. However, Altus Emergency Centers is proud to be a member of the community. The outpouring of support from the local authorities and neighbors who are organizing to look after each other inspires us every day.

 

Altus Emergency Centers stands with our communities. We are confident we will get through this by working together and taking care of one another. Stay safe and healthy.

Taking Care of Our Red Oak Community

Taking Care of Our Red Oak Community

Time flies when you are fulfilling your purpose. It’s now been three years since we first opened our doors and our hearts to the lovely communities of Waxahachie and Red Oak.

Today we are filled with gratitude and appreciation for all our Patients, neighbors, and friends. You took us in and made us feel like family, and every day we strive to do the same for you all.

It’s always a blessing to serve a community that shares many of the core values of our organization: family, honesty, and a commitment to excellence. This community inspires us to continue to grow and improve our service every day.

Different is Better – How Altus Innovates Emergency Care

One of the biggest grievances of ER patients is the treatment they receive from doctors, nurses, and administrative staff.

This reality offends us deeply; that is why we promise you will never encounter indifference in our ER; that’s a claim very few can make!

At Altus Emergency, we are Big Enough to Matter, but also Small Enough to Care. Our team of local doctors, nurses, and administrative professionals will always treat you like family when you visit us.

 

Innovating Every Day

 

We work under the belief that emergency care should be fast, personalized, convenient, and affordable.

At Altus, we’ve reinvented what it means to be a real emergency center. It’s hard to compare us to anyone else. When you visit our facility, this is what you can expect:

  • Convenient location close to home
  • World-class medical attention provided by local doctors and nurses that genuinely care about you and your family
  • Minimal wait times, you’ll see a medical professional within minutes not hours
  • Affordable treatments
  • Simple, no-hassle billing process

Conveniently Located

 

We chose a site location that is convenient for all residents of Waxahachie and the beautiful town of Red Oak.

If you’re like most of our patients, you don’t want to leave the area for care. That’s why we make it convenient for you to get treated right here at home.

Time is of the essence in an emergency, and it’s reassuring to know you don’t need to drive an hour out of your way because Altus Emergency Center is only 10 minutes away.

Our state-of-the-art facility has easy access and offers ample parking.

Our Services

 

Our services aim to provide world-class emergency care to all patients, including children. We have certified doctors and nurses working at our ER 24/7. There will never be an instance where you come in, and there won’t be a doctor available.

Our facility offers all the services required to treat medical emergencies, including X-Rays, EKGs, CT Scans, pediatric care, and full-service diagnostic lab.

 

With Us Every Second Counts

 

During an emergency, the last thing you want to be worrying about is how long you will have to wait at the ER before you see a doctor.

Here at Altus Emergency Cents, we understand every second matters, which is why we take them VERY SERIOUSLY.

There is absolutely no time to wait in an emergency. We work hard to ensure every patient who comes to us in an emergency, is seen by a doctor right away.

There are no lines at our facility, and when you visit us, you will encounter some of the most caring individuals in the medical profession who just want to provide you with the best emergency care possible

Ease your mind knowing that here at Altus, we understand the urgency of your situation, and we will do everything in our power to make you happy and healthy again.

With Us, You’ll Never Overpay

 

Nobody should lose sleep, trying to figure out how to pay for their emergency care.

At Altus, we revolutionized how ER’s work. To help make our patient’s lives a little easier after an emergency easier, we brought our billing in house.

As part of our commitment to taking care of the community, we hired doctors to work directly with us, and we negotiated down their doctor fees to ensure you never have to overpay for emergency care again.

If you ever have questions about your medical bill, we encourage you to please reach out to our friendly, expert Patient Advocate.

Lendall Baker is here to help you get the most from your insurance coverage.  Please call or email him now if you have recently received a medical bill.

The staff of Altus Emergency at Waxahachie is proud of the service provided to members of these communities, and we vow to continue improving to better serve you for years to come.

Why the $100 Free Gift Card Giveaway?

These are challenging times during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.  As a result, many families and local businesses have been struggling.  At Altus Emergencies, we believe from the bottom of our hearts that we are all in this together.  We have remained open 24/7 serving our communities to ensure that they have a safe haven when they are in need of emergency medical care.  We offer the alternative to crowded hospital ERs in order to ensure our patients will not contract a secondary infection.  How do we do this? We abide by strict safety guidelines according to the CDC, we have a far lower patient to nurse ratios, in fact, our patients will enjoy no wait times.  They will not have to sit in the lobby dangerously next to anyone else, unlike hospital ERs.  This said we applaud the brave works of the hospital ERs as, like ourselves, they are working hard in the face of these uniquely dangerous times.

This $100 Free Gift Card Giveaway is to help support our local restaurants and give a family the opportunity a chance to enjoy a much deserved great meal of their choice.

Dr. Mitchell Honored as a Life Member for ACEP

Dr. Terry Mitchell, Medical Director of the Altus Emergency Center in Waxahachie, was recently honored by the American College of Emergency Physicians® (ACEP) with the Award of “Life Member.”

The American College of Emergency Physicians® represents more than 38,000 emergency physicians, ER residents, and students. Thanks to the support of members like Dr. Mitchell, the organization can promote the highest quality of emergency care and continue its advocacy for emergency physicians and their patients.

ACEP membership

To become a member of ACEP, candidates dedicate a significant portion of their medical activities to emergency medicine. Additionally, membership candidates must meet at least one of the following conditions:

  • Have completed an emergency medicine residency program accredited by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) or by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)
  • Completed a subspecialty training program in pediatric emergency medicine accredited by the ACGME
  • Possess a primary board certification from an emergency medicine certifying body which is recognized by ACEP

 

All members are elected or appointed by the Board of Directors and must hold a current, active, full, valid, unrestricted, and unqualified license to practice medicine in the state in which they practice.

Staff Quotes

Here are some quotes from the Altus Emergency staff that work side by side with Dr. Mitchell.

Excellent and knowledgeable physician – Lynn Miller

Impeccable “bedside” manner – Cody Brown

Genuinely cares for all his patients – Florence Bulawin

Very entertaining…loves to tell his “stories” and also a few “corny” jokes as well – Janet Justice

He is a good Christian man and very family oriented too. – Lendall Barker

Life Member Recognition

The honor of Life Member is reserved for those individuals who have been a member of the College for a minimum of 30 years.

The membership provides several benefits, discounts, and recognition both at their national convention and in several of their publications.

Dr. William Jaquis, ACEP president, thanked Dr. Mitchell for the years he has aligned himself with ACEP with a lifetime commitment to the College and the field of Emergency Medicine.

He cited Dr. Mitchell’s unwavering determination during the growth of our specialty and his help in the fight to maintain its position in the house of medicine in its first 50 years. He went on to say that he has helped ACEP stand ready to usher in the next 50 years of excellence in Emergency Medicine, one of the youngest specialties in the house of medicine.

Dr. Mitchell’s Professional Journey

Dr. Mitchell came out of Family Medicine training in 1983, and for eight years, did all of Family Medicine in McKinney, TX., including obstetrics.

He had a large clinic and hospital practice and was Medical Director at 4 of 9 nursing homes where he attended patients. Additionally, he was the Medical Director of a hospital inpatient eating disorder unit, did pharmaceutical research, and for a brief time, had a radio talk show on Christian radio in the Dallas market.

During this time, the American Academy of Family Practice awarded Dr. Mitchell, the title of Fellow (FAAFP).

In 1991 Dr. Mitchell made the transition from Family Practice to Emergency Medicine. In a short time, he was the Medical Director of Emergency Services for the hospital and local EMS.

He took certification teaching courses and taught Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Life Support, and Basic Trauma Life Support for EMS, nursing, and physicians.

In 1995, he joined the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP). In 2010, in recognition of non-residency trained Emergency Physicians like Dr. Mitchell, who have made significant contributions to the specialty, a one-year door was opened to apply for Fellow of ACEP.

Dr, Mitchell applied with the three required recommendations, including one board member for whom he was Medical Director at the time. He had been Medical Director for several different Emergency Departments, 3-counties for EMS, and served for many years on a 9-county Trauma Advisory Council, serving on several committees and in all offices including President.

He served in 3 ACEP national sections: Rural Emergency Medicine, Quality Improvement and Patient Safety, and Workforce Section. On the state level, he has served on the governmental committee. Therefore, in 2010, ACEP awarded Dr. Mitchell, the title of Fellow (FACEP).

And now, the high honor of Life Member has been added. ACEP President Dr. Jaquis, on behalf of ACEP, expressed his gratitude for the exemplary commitment Dr. Mitchell has demonstrated for the specialty and his patients. He has truly earned the right to sign his name: Terry Mitchell, MD, FAAFP, FACEP.

We’re Proud of You, Doctor Mitchell!

Altus Emergency Centers is proud to have Dr. Mitchell serving as the Medical Director for our Waxahachie ER. His accomplishments in the field of emergency medicine coupled with his inmense humanity make him an exception asset to our organization.
