Bowie Memorial Hospital Improves Emergency Services, Adds Walk-in Clinic


Bowie, TEXAS (October 29, 2014) – As Bowie Memorial Hospital works to deliver the highest quality care and caring for the community, recent improvements focus on Emergency Services – as well as the new Walk-in Clinic the next door over.

 

“Our goal at Bowie Memorial Hospital is to continually improve patient care and patient experience,” said CEO Michael McEachern. “We are here every minute of every day to care for patients when they need us, whether it’s an emergency or any other healthcare concern.”

 

Improvements began in August with the change to the Titanium Emergency Group, Wichita Falls, Texas. The group has been serving communities in and around Wichita Falls for more than 30 years with board-certified emergency medicine physicians. “We are pleased to bring our expertise and care oversight to patients at Bowie Memorial Hospital,” said Alan Scott Meyers, MD, Titanium Emergency Group President and Medical Director.

 

As a designated and certified level IV trauma center, Bowie Memorial Hospital’s Emergency Department is continually monitored with regulations and guidelines set by the Texas State Department of Health.

 

As part of streamlining care to serve patients, the hospital opened a new Walk-In Clinic just last month. The entrance for the Walk-in Clinic is through the front door of the hospital. “We are committed to the health of our community and listen to ways we can improve all aspects of quality care and service,” added McEachern.

 

The Walk-In Clinic is dedicated to serving patients with less severe illnesses and injuries, and when access to other primary care may not be available. It is designed to be able to see, treat and release patients more quickly than if seen in the ED. Convenient hours include late afternoons and evenings during the week with some weekend hours.

 

Visibly, patients and their families will notice new exterior signage and separate entrances for the Emergency Department and Walk-in Clinic.
