West U. Moms Trust Rice Emergency Room

West U. Moms Trust Rice Emergency Room

West U. Moms have convenient, compassionate, medical emergency care with Rice Emergency Room. You may have noticed that Elite Care ER on Rice Blvd. changed its name recently and it is because we have new owners. Nothing else has changed, we are still the same amazing doctors and nurses you knew and loved with Elite Care.

We understand busy moms need a resource for emergency care with special attention given to pediatric patients. Busy families need fast answers in a medical emergency as young children are active and play sports where injuries happen. Sports injuries is one of the many reasons we see pediatric patients. We also know that children get sick at the worst times!

Board-Certified ER Physicians

Our board-certified Emergency Room doctors are specially trained to work with pediatric patients who have broken a bone, have the flu, COVID or other TBD illness. We can give you definitive answers on the spot. Our fast PCR testing takes a simple nasal swab, and tests for over 20 different viruses, including COVID and influenza, providing super-fast results in about an hour.

Having a neighborhood resource that goes beyond coughs and colds treated by urgent cares is important to the quality of care your child receives. Emergencies happen 24/7 and we are ready to triage as soon as you’re checked in.

West U. Moms  – Meet Nancy!

We interviewed West U. Mom Nancy Q. who is a busy realtor as well as mom to Goldie age 5 and Yacob age 7. Her family recently relied on the Rice Emergency Room doctors when her dad had COVID and needed a higher level of care and fast answers. 

“Dr. Zegar was attentive and made sure my Dad had the best care. He had to be intubated and that was scary for our family. We are grateful for the care we received from Dr. Zegar.”

Crowded public ERs are no place for sick children and Nancy tells us she is happy to know her family can receive world-class care for her children right in her community.  

When we asked Nancy to do an interview with us, she was excited to share her experience with the other West U. Moms.
