Legacy ER & Urgent Care, one of the nation’s first hybrid health care models offering both urgent care and emergency room treatment options under one roof, is slated to open a location next month at 1220 Keller Parkway in Keller, Texas. It is Legacy’s third North Texas ER and urgent care center. Legacy is headquartered in Plano with health care centers in Allen and Frisco. The Keller location, which is the only facility of its kind in the city, will begin seeing patients Thursday, Oct. 8.
“Keller is a great community, and we’re excited to be able to bring our hybrid health care model there. Now Keller residents won’t have to choose between a stand-alone ER or an urgent care facility. With Legacy, they’ll have the best of both worlds – top-rated, board-certified, emergency-trained physicians; state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment equipment; and an ‘only pay-for-the-care-you-need,’ in-network billing system,” stated Keith Miller, president of Legacy ER & Urgent Care.
Miller added that Legacy ER & Urgent Care plans to do special events throughout the month of October to introduce the health care provider to the Keller community. These events include a wall dedication ceremony on Oct. 18 with Taylor’s Gift Foundation, a national non-profit organization headquartered in North Texas that seeks to increase awareness about organ donation and assist families who have been affected by that need; a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Greater Keller Chamber of Commerce on Oct. 29 followed by a luncheon honoring the city’s first responders; and finally, a grand opening celebration, which is free and open to the public.
The grand opening will be held Saturday, Oct. 31, from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. It will include a costume contest, tours, face painting, a bounce house, food and more. For more information on any of the October events, visit http://legacyer.com/ or call the Keller location at 817-898-8000.
“We hope you’ll join us for the grand opening. We look forward to meeting our new neighbors and showing them around the facility. We’re going to have a lot of great activities that the whole family can enjoy – including a bike rodeo with obstacle courses, prizes and bike safety information – as well as Halloween activities, food and much more,” said Miller.
Urgent care hours are from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily, and ER services are accessible 24-7, 365 days a year. The typical wait time before being seen is less than five minutes. Online check-in is available and walk-ins are welcomed.
