The Greater Orange Area Chamber of Commerce, Bridge City and Vidor Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting ceremony for Golden Triangle Emergency Center  on April 22. The newly constructed, state-of-the art, facility is located at 3107 Edgar Brown Drive.      

Golden Triangle Emergency Center sets the Gold Standard for emergency care in Orange. All testing is done quickly, on site, and without the delays associated with traditional, hospital-based emergency departments. Patients are evaluated by an experienced ER physician within minutes of arriving and leave with any lab results and a disk of images taken. Orange County resident and Medical Director, Brad Barton, M.D., stated, “Our local and Southeast Texas physician-owned and operated board certified physician partners have over 50 years of combined emergency room experience providing top quality care in both urban and rural settings.  We are excited to offer this level of service to our community and especially pleased at the welcome that has been extended to us throughout the area.” 

The Freestanding Emergency Center industry in Texas was created to increase access to medical care with emergency-certified physicians on-site at all times. Centers are required to provide the same level of access and services as hospital-based emergency rooms, with the exception of trauma care. When hospital admission is required, facilities have transfer agreements with area hospitals. As also noted by the Texas Association of Freestanding Emergency Centers (TAFEC), of which Golden Triangle is a member, “Freestanding emergency centers charge equal to or less than hospital ERs for emergency care that often exceeds the hospital ER standard.”

In contrast to an urgent care clinic, Golden Triangle Emergency Center is a freestanding emergency room with a team of ER trained doctors, nurses, and technologists that are available 24/7. We use the latest equipment and technology of a modern hospital emergency room, including CT scans, bedside emergency ultrasound, digital radiology, and a full clinical laboratory ─ all in the comfort of an upscale clinical environment right in your neighborhood.

Golden Triangle Emergency Center accepts all major insurances including CHIPS and TRICARE and honors all in network benefits.

Golden Triangle Emergency Center is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We are conveniently located at 3107 Edgar Brown Drive, Orange, one block east of Walmart. To learn more about theservices we provide please visit www.gtec24.com; email info@gtec24.com or call us at 920-4470.
