Corpus Christi Medical Center is a designation by the Texas Department of State Health Services as a Level IV Trauma Center. This designation recognizes the hospitals’ efforts to better serve severely injured patients by significantly improving trauma care.  Both Bay Area and Doctors Regional hospitals have the necessary equipment and resources for trauma cases.  These Level IV facilities also offers essential diagnostic capabilities and provide surgery and critical care services related to trauma care. When patients arrive at the Emergency Department, live-saving care is provided by physicians and trained nurses. If the situation demands, transfer agreements and protocols allow patients to be transferred quickly to a higher level of care.  

One of the largest emergency facilities in South Texas, featuring:

  • 24/7 medical care
  • Expert team of medical professionals
  • State-of-the-art unit that that handles a vast range of medical needs, from minor injuries to major illness
  • Specialized triage system resulting in minimal wait times and immediate diagnostic testing
  • Diagnostic Radiology - A Board Certified Radiologist and highly skilled technicians provide services through our center’s Diagnostic Imaging Department
  • Laboratory services also available
  • Emergency Chest Pain Accredited Hospitals (Bay Area and Doctors Regional)
  • Accredited with commendation by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO)

For potential heart attack victims, our Emergency Departments at Bay Area and Doctors Regional can receive 12-lead EKGs from EMS providers while they are transporting patients to the hospital. This alerts the Cardiac Catheterization Lab and surgical teams, which are on standby 24/7. Heart attack patients often can bypass the ER and go right to the cath lab, saving precious minutes.
