The Jones Real Estate Group has nothing but the utmost respect for the men and women who serve and have served in all branches of the military to preserve our country and the many freedoms we enjoy. Today, we wish to say to you Thank You! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you have done and continue to do to keep us safe in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave!
Another thing we love here at The Jones Real Estate Group is seeing our wonderful veteran’s continue to give back to our community. Last week on November 4, 2016, Spectrum Healthcare opened the doors to their new Full Spectrum Emergency Room.
Spectrum Healthcare is owned & staffed by seasoned combat veterans who are 100% Emergency Medicine Board Certified with extensive emergency room experience. Many of their physicians are accomplished academic professors who are dedicated to consistently providing the best experience to their patients and the communities they serve.
The Full Spectrum Emergency Room is a freestanding emergency room. It is opened 24 hours a day, 365 day of the year. It operates just like a hospital emergency room and is equipped with onsite labs & advanced radiology services. The facility is licensed to handle major medical trauma or life-threatening conditions.
The Jones Real Estate Group recently had the opportunity to enjoy a private tour of Full Spectrum Emergency Room. While there we learned about the many amazing features that Full Spectrum Emergency Room provides that other emergency rooms do not.
First and foremost is the quality of care that is provided to patients by the staff is truly unprecidented! The staff at Full Spectrum Emergency Room is comprised of Veterans, who spent time serving in our military providing the best lifesaving care possible to those brave men and women who are serving our country. The staff at Full Spectrum Emergency Room continues to provide that same level of service now to our communities. You will find that you spend much more one-on-one time with your attending physician than in other emergency rooms and in much more beautful, clean and calm patient rooms.
Another fantastic feature, is Full Spectrum Emergency Room’s ambulance service. When you call Full Spectrum Emergency Room to request care and ambulance service be provided to transport you to Full Spectrum Emergency Room, that service rcomes to the patient at NO COST!
Full Spectrum Emergency Room’s in-house laboratory services enables physicians to have bloodwork and results completed in half the time of normal hospital emergency rooms! In most cases, results are available in 15 minutes! What this means for patients is they will experience more immediate treatment because the physicians have the appropriate information to diagnosis and treat their conditions in a quicker manner.
Full Spectrum Emergency Room treats patients in such a complete manner that they send patients home prepared to manage their condition with the appropriate medications for 3 days. This makes it easy to get home and start recovering instead of worrying about immediately filling prescriptions and waiting for prolonged periods of time for the medication that will help you feel better.
On November 15, 2016 there will be a Full Spectrum Emergency Room Grand Opening. Shortly after, The Rim Urgent Care will be opened for service! This facility will be open from 8AM-8PM. This urgent care facility will serve as an extension of your primary care physician’s office. They will be open weekend and holidays. They will also have normal extended hours for medical care. This facility will be able to treat minor ailments, injuries and illnesses.
Full Spectrum Emergency Room & The Rim Urgent Care accept most private medical insurance plans, including but not limited to: Aetna, BlueCross BlueShield. Cigna, Humana & United Healthcare.
We, here at The Jones Real Estate Group, are elated to have such a fantastic medical establishment available to service the La Cantera, Dominion, Leon Springs and North 1-10 neighborhoods & communities! We look forward to seeing this facility thrive and grow. If you ever need emergency health care services or urgent care services, think of Full Spectrum Emergency Room & The Rim Urgent Care first!
