Advance ER just rolled out an Employee of the Month award to acknowledge one employee at each of their locations who is going above and beyond and exemplifying the five star service we strive for every day. They nominated and honored their first two EOM’s during the month of May. For their Galleria Area location their first employee of the month was their Front Desk Lead – Ashley Pressey. For their Park Cities location their employee of the month was their Lead Radiology Technologist Stephen Surrey. These Team Members were recognized and nominated by their peers for delivering Five Star Service in one or more of five categories (Teamwork, Peer/Patient Education, Integrity, Patient/Customer/Staff Care and Empathy). Advance ER is seeing more and more patient referrals and positive reviews daily which they are very grateful for. They want everyone to leave having had a positive experience. One recent review during the month of May was from their patient Liz stating: “This was the easiest ER visit I have ever had. Everyone was so nice and very pleasant to deal with, which is so important when you don’t feel well. I was in and out in no time at all. I had clear instructions and even received a call the following day to check how I was doing. I highly recommend this Advance ER location. They’ll even send you a thank you card the following week.”
We are continuing to grow and improve daily as Advance ER strives to provide each patient with the absolute best ER experience possible!

STAT Emergency Center of Laredo proudly announces that once again, they received exceptional survey results from their South location during their recent inspection completed by the Texas Department of State Health Services. STAT Emergency Center-South received a 100 percent overall rating with zero deficiencies. The state agency surveyed clinical, radiology, lab pharmacy, medical records, administration, physician files, patient surveys, and all other operational protocols. It is an unprecedented achievement, and it was highly noted by the State department inspector that our organization received this remarkable rating twice. This is truly an outstanding accomplishment for STAT Emergency Center because this is a rare occurrence for any Emergency Room facility to receive perfect scores, let alone receive a 100 percent rating twice. STAT North received 100% compliance with zero deficiencies back in December 2015.
Grace Padron, Director of Operations, made the official announcement on the high ratings and would like to recognize the following staff members: Krisdian Uribe – Facility Administrator, Melissa Gonzalez – Assistant Administrator, Veronica Aguilar – Director of Nursing, Juan Ortiz – ER Manager, Jesse Silva – Director of Radiology, Javier Solis Jr. – Director of Marketing and Sebastian T. Padron, MD – Medical Director; as well as our ER physician staff, registration clerks, clinical and environmental service staff for their hard work and due diligence.
