Our Story

Austin Emergency Center’s (AEC) mission to provide exceptional patient-centered healthcare in the communities we serve. We stand apart through our level of compassion, care, and commitment to every patient. We offer fast, best-in-class emergency care – when minutes count.

We created Austin Emergency Centers to bring concierge-level, quality emergency care to the local community without the normal delays associated with traditional hospital-based emergency departments. AEC was founded by four board-certified emergency medicine physicians with more than 50 years combined ER experience, the first locally-owned ER in Austin, and the first independently-run ER in Austin.

Our patients enjoy the ambiance and aesthetics of a high-end private practice, followed by an evaluation by an experienced, Board Certified emergency room physician, within minutes of entry to our facilities.

In contrast to an urgent care clinic, AEC is a freestanding emergency room designed to handle serious medical emergencies. Our facilities utilize the state-of-the-art equipment and technology of a modern hospital emergency room; CT machines, bedside emergency ultrasound, digital radiology, a full clinical laboratory, and much more. We are staffed 24/7/365 by Board Certified Doctors, nurses, radiology staff, and courteous front office staff. All of this within the comfort of an upscale clinical environment.

At AEC, we give you a higher standard of emergency care.
