If someone is having a medical emergency, call 911 immediately.
HCA Houston Healthcare Conroe’s emergency room provides 24-hour urgent care for a broad spectrum of illnesses and injuries. If a follow-up is required with one of our specialists, we ensure timely care by scheduling your appointment prior to discharge.
Upon arrival to our Conroe emergency center, you will immediately be placed in a triage room, if a room is available. A triage process is initiated to help determine the order in which patients will be seen. While our goal is to quickly screen and assess all patients, the most critical patients receive priority—whether arrival is by ambulance or walk-in. Emergent, or higher-acuity, patients will most likely receive care in the main emergency room.
Higher-acuity conditions include:
- Chest pain
- Complex fractures
- Mental confusion
Patients with conditions that are not life threatening are screened as quickly as possible through our rapid-intake process. Lower-acuity illnesses will be managed in our intake area until discharge.
Low-acuity conditions and services include:
- Laceration repair/sutures
- Minor bone fractures/splints
- Flu-like illness
Level II Trauma Center
As the first and only designated Level II Trauma Center in Montgomery County, we are the closest and most advanced emergency room prepared to care for a wide range of life-threatening and minor injuries. We have the capabilities to treat trauma patients 24-hours-a-day, and we have immediate access to a variety of medical specialties, including:
- Cardiovascular surgery

Cardiac and stroke treatment
Time is of the essence when a heart attack or stroke is suspected, so choosing the nearest emergency room equipped to handle critical emergencies is vital. As a Certified Primary Stroke Center designated by The Joint Commission, HCA Houston Healthcare Conroe meets standards that support the highest level of quality-patient outcomes. Our hospital is also an Accredited Chest Pain Center, meaning we meet or exceed the Society of Chest Pain’s standards for performing angioplasty, a life-saving procedure that opens blocked arteries.
