If you’re urgently looking for a 24-hour emergency room near you, then don’t hesitate to come to Altus Emergency Center.

The physicians at our emergency centers in Baytown, Lake Jackson, Lumberton, and Waxahachie, Texas are ready to provide you with immediate medical care whenever you may need. Our patients often ask us, “What is the difference between an Altus Emergency Center and urgent care clinics near me?” There are several key differences. One main advantage of our emergency center over urgent care clinics in 77521 or 75165 is our full-service diagnostic lab which provides proper diagnosis and treatment of a wide array of medical emergencies.
