ALLEN, TEXAS (Nov. 19, 2015)… Legacy ER & Urgent Care, one of the nation’s first hybrid health care models offering both urgent care and emergency room treatment options under one roof, is celebrating its two year birthday in Allen, Texas (1310 W. Exchange Pkwy.). Legacy ER & Urgent Care is headquartered in Plano, Texas with seven health care centers in Allen, Coppell, Frisco (2), Keller, McKinney and North Richland Hills.

Legacy ER & Urgent Care - Allen is a Texas state-licensed 7,632 SF Freestanding emergency & urgent care facility in Allen, Texas. Its award-winning building was designed by 5G Studio and was 5G Studio’s second facility. The design concept built upon the success of their first facility in Frisco, Texas where the distinctive architecture and interior design of the facility continue to bring as much brand recognition as the exceptional medical service. The building combines two traditionally separate programs, the emergency room and the urgent care, under one roof. The progressive architectural design integrated the elements of sustainable and evidence-based design to offer a soothing environment for patients seeking care under distressed conditions. The project held its ground breaking ceremony on March 21, 2013.

Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer Jay Woody, MD states, "Since we started Legacy ER & Urgent Care in 2008 we wanted to present a completely different health care experience for our patients and that included the aesthetic of the facility.  When we expanded to Allen we were presented an opportunity to design our perfect scenario from scratch thanks to the support from the city.  We are so proud of our results and the thousands of patients that visit every month unanimously agree they love the clean, non-healthcare feel of the facility"  

At Legacy ER & Urgent Care, patients only pay for the care they need. No more making financial decisions when a family member needs to feel better. Legacy ER & Urgent care is always on whether a condition will get billed as an urgent care visit (more than 70 percent fall into this category) or an emergency.

“Unlike most free-standing ERs today, Legacy ER & Urgent Care won’t bill you emergency room prices unless you actually need emergency care. If you go in during urgent care hours for a sore throat or some other non-emergency situation, you’re charged urgent care prices, not emergency room prices, which can save you hundreds of dollars per visit,” explains Keith Miller, president of Legacy ER & Urgent Care.

Founded in 2008, Legacy ER & Urgent Care is one of the nation’s first health care models to offer both urgent care and emergency room treatment options under one roof. It has built an exceptional customer service program and rating by providing transparent billing, soothing environments and one-on-one service with board-certified, emergency-trained physicians.
