Healthcare services company Nutex Health has announced the opening of two new fully operational hospitals in the US.
The first hospital, New Braunfels ER & Hospital is located in New Braunfels, Texas.
Situated about 30 miles northeast of San Antonio, the healthcare facility is open round-the-clock in a year.
This hospital features an emergency room with nine private exam rooms and four private inpatient beds.
The hospital offers both adult and paediatric care, and is claimed to be equipped with the most advanced imaging and laboratory equipment, including CT, X-Ray and ultrasound.
The second hospital, East Valley ER & Hospital, is located in Gilbert, Arizona.
Situated about 21 miles southeast of Phoenix, this hospital is also open round-the-clock in a year.
The hospital features an emergency room with 14 private exam rooms and 14 private inpatient beds.
It provides both adults and paediatric care, and has advanced imaging and laboratory equipment, including MRI, CT, X-Ray and ultrasound.
Nutex Health chairman and chief executive officer Tom Vo said: “We are excited to continue to expand Nutex’s network of micro hospitals across the country.
“Both New Braunfels and Gilbert are vibrant and rapidly growing suburbs of major metropolitan areas. Our goal is to provide high-quality acute medical care to the populations of these communities.”
Nutex currently expects to open three more facilities this year.
Another 17 facilities, which are either under construction or in advanced planning stages, are expected to open in 2023 and 2024. Nutex Health runs 21 facilities in eight US states and a primary care-centric, risk-bearing population health management division.
