A new option in emergency care is here in San Antonio. Elite Care Emergency Centers offer a one-of-a-kind experience that differs from that of any other from the moment you walk in the door. We boast a guaranteed wait time of 10 minutes or less from the time you arrive until you are being taken back to an exam suite to be treated by one of our board-certified emergency doctors. We can handle anything from a cut to cardiac arrest, and we have transfer agreements with all the area hospitals. Our lobbies look like something you'd expect to find in a hotel, and our staff is actually happy to be here. When's the last time you went to an ER and saw the doctors smiling? That's what you'll find here at Elite Care, a happy and helpful staff and the efficiency to get you back to your life and feeling well.
