ER at Sherman, a service of Texoma Medical Center, opened its doors on Tuesday, October 1, 2019, and celebrated with a ribbon cutting on Friday, October 11. The facility is located at 4226 N. US Highway 75 at Sherman Town Center, and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week to serve patients who experience medical emergencies. It is the only local freestanding emergency facility in the Texoma region operated under a hospital license, which means it accepts most insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid. ER at Sherman also has the full resources and support from Texoma Medical Center, the region's leading trauma center.
ER at Sherman is a full-service emergency room, capable of treating life-threatening injuries in addition to less urgent issues. It has an on-site laboratory and digital imaging equipment including CT scan and ultrasound. There are private exam rooms for adults and a dedicated pediatric treatment room for children. If a patient needs hospitalized care, ER at Sherman provides direct admission to Texoma Medical Center, or transfer to a hospital of the patient’s choosing.
Texoma Medical Center has scheduled the groundbreaking for an additional freestanding emergency department in Anna, Texas, in early November.
