Cy-Fair to Open Emergency & Imaging Center 
Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital 
Friday, 18 February 2011 
Sprains, strains, and chest pain. Access to quality medical care for you and your family is now closer to home. Construction is currently underway on a new Emergency Center and Imaging Center located right in the heart of the Cy-Fair community at Highway 290 and Mueschke Road. The Cy-Fair Emergency & Imaging Center, which is a department of Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital, is slated to open on March 22, 2011 and will provide advanced care in a cozy, beautifully-decorated atmosphere with easy access from Cypress and neighboring communities.

The Emergency Center will be ready to care for your health care needs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Staffed by board certified emergency medicine physicians and registered nurses, you will receive the same high level of care that you encounter at the Cy-Fair Hospital Emergency Department. Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital was, in fact, ranked among the top 5% of hospitals nationwide for emergency medicine in 2010 according to HealthGrades, a leading independent health care ratings company.

 Like the Emergency Department at Cy-Fair Hospital, the new Emergency Center will be equipped to care for a wide range of emergency medicine needs. Staff at the center are specially trained with a systematic and multidisciplinary approach to patient care allowing physicians to reduce the time to treatment during the early stages of a heart attack or stroke, when treatments are most effective. The team will consult with highly trained neurologists through Specialists on Call, an advanced telecommunications system referred to as telemedicine, that provides 24/7 access to stroke consultation support.

An extension of the Imaging Department at Cy-Fair, which is accredited by the American College of Radiology for a number of imaging modalities including computed tomography (CT), mammography, and ultrasound, the Imaging Center will offer comprehensive diagnostic imaging services to diagnose a wide range of medical conditions and injuries. X-ray, ultrasound, CT, bone densitometry, and digital mammography services as well as laboratory services will be available for emergent and outpatient diagnostic testing needs at the new center. The Imaging Center will have a dedicated waiting area for patients with modern, comfortable accommodations.

And because the Emergency Center and Imaging Center are affiliated with Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital, you will receive the same in-network benefit coverage from your health insurance plan as you would if you were visiting the hospital. Cy-Fair is in-network with over 50 major health insurance plans to help you focus on getting back to health.
