Cuero Regional Hospital's Emergency Department is available every day of the year 24 hours a day to meet the emergent and urgent medical needs of our community and the surrounding area. The Emergency Department is staffed with highly trained emergency physicians and registered nurses experienced in treating patients with emergent and urgent medical conditions and dedicated to providing expert, caring and timely treatment.
Cuero Regional Hospital's newly renovated Emergency Department (ED) opened in August 2018. The 1.5 million renovation features about 1,000 square feet of additional space, six fully private treatment rooms, additional private patient registration areas, as well as an upgraded nurses' station and new triage area to improve patient flow through the ED. Prior to the renovation, three existing ED patient rooms were curtained off, but have now been transformed into private exam suites with doors to increase privacy and comfort.
Patients are asked to please drive to the back of the hospital and use the main exterior ER entrance to access the new Emergency Department.
Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is also readily available to assist our community with medical emergencies at any time, day or night. Licensed paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) provide care for patients in our fully equipped mobile intensive care units. A heliport is also located behind the Emergency Department entrance for emergency air transport when necessary.
Cuero Regional Hospital (CRH) maintains TDSHS designation as a Level IV Trauma Center, and all Emergency Department personnel maintain up-to-date, specialized training in the care of injured patients. CRH participates in the Texas Trauma System with ready access to regional resources when the needs of the patient exceed local capabilities.
Cuero Regional Hospital has recently partnered with Methodist Healthcare to bring the best of stroke services to patients in our service area. Our Tele-Stroke program allows neurologists to be joined remotely to the patient's bedside at CRH via an internet-based, FDA-approved, HIPAA compliant telemedicine "robot," which allows for timely, comprehensive evaluation and treatment of the patient with stroke symptoms.
