Rice ER

Rice Emergency Room is a full-service stand alone emergency room with all of the services you would find at a traditional hospital emergency room.

Primary benefits of a stand-alone ER are wait times, expertise, capabilities, and convenience.

  • At a hospital ER it can take several hours to be seen by a physician. At our ER, you will speak with a physician much faster, and usually within minutes.
  • Emergency diagnostics, imagine, and lab results. Allowing us to provide you with quick results and answers.
  • Staffed by a team of skilled emergency professionals, Board-certified Emergency Physicians and registered nurses.
  • Offering both adult and pediatric emergency care 24/7 365 days a year.

We live, work, and play in and around Rice Village and are proud to call you our neighbor and Houston our home.

We are a short distance away from all local neighborhoods, including West University, Morningside Place, Southhampton, Southgate, Old Braeswood, Braeswood Place, Sunset Terrace, Montclair, Greenbriar, Knollwood Village and River Oaks.


HOW DO WE COMPARE With a hospital or urgent care?


If your illness or injury requires further care, Rice Emergency Room takes careful steps to ensure the best care possible. In cases where observation is needed, Rice Emergency Room offers a luxurious, private observation suite.

Occasionally a patient needs specialty care, surgical attention or a longer hospital stay. In these cases, our physicians coordinate with local hospitals to create a seamless, expedited transition.

Anytime a transfer is required for further care or monitoring, you will not incur a charge for a second emergency room visit. Rice Emergency Room will arrange for you to be admitted directly to a room at any hospital of your choice, or be taken straight to the cath-lab or surgical suite.

Whether in our emergency room, observation or being transferred to another facility, Rice ER will provide you with superior care every step of the way.
