The Austin Boulevard Emergency Center will include nearly a dozen emergency beds, including two trauma bays.

“It’s really a part the long-term strategy and vision that Premiere has had for that southern Montgomery County region, of making sure that we are meeting the needs of people who live there, who have told us they want quality health care close to home,” she says.



Howard says the new Level I trauma center will also provide imaging services, including CT scans, X-ray and lab services. It will also link to Premier Health's TeleStroke Network, that connects stroke specialists remotely via computer to patients and providers at the point of care.
