Your First Choice for Emergency, Trauma and Heart Attack Care

Corpus Christi Medical Center provides 24-hour emergency care at four locations in and around Corpus Christi, TX (three in Corpus Christi, one in Portland). All our ERs employ a specialized triage system that keeps ER wait times at a minimum and ensures immediate diagnostic testing. 

To help meet all your emergency and urgent healthcare needs, we have two Level IV Trauma Centers – one at our Bay Area ER and one at our Doctors Regional ER. Trauma centers provide patients with significantly improved trauma care and must meet certain requirements, including specialized resources and equipment, to better serve severely injured patients. 

As Emergency Chest Pain Accredited hospitals, the ERs at Bay Area and Doctors Regional can save heart attack victims precious minutes by sending them straight to the catheter laboratory.

What To Do When You Need Emergency Care

If you are having a medical emergency, call 911. Do not try to drive yourself to the ER – if your condition causes you to get into an accident, you may create an emergency for someone else. 

If your symptoms are related to a potential heart attack or stroke, call 911 – even if there is someone to drive you to the ER. Emergency medical technicians can begin assessing your condition, provide treatment on the way, and alert our ER and cardiac teams to be ready. Additionally, riding in an ambulance means you won’t get stuck in traffic.
