Our Mission

Our promise is to provide quality emergency medical care in a non-threatening and comfortable environment. Our physicians feel accountable for the care they deliver and also focus on ensuring a cost-effective approach such that everyone can afford care when necessary.

Serving Our Community

Family isn’t just in our name but it’s how we treat our patients and our community. At Family Emergency Room, we volunteer our services to many community and outreach events. You will see us on the sidelines of the local high school football game, on the soccer field, at the grocery store and in many local community groups. We offer preventative screenings, such as our heart screenings during National Heart Health Month of February. Your health is important to us.

Family Emergency Room is committed to the well being of all members of our community. We are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide immediate care for all minor to major medical needs. You can trust us with your care day or night.

Message from Dr. Henry Higgins, MD

The long wait times, understaffing, lack of accountability and complete loss of patient focus in hospital based emergency departments had just about caused me to throw my stethoscope in the trash and take another path with my life. When the opportunity presented itself to own and operate a freestanding emergency department I jumped at the chance to change how emergency medical care is delivered and should be practiced. For the first time in 15 years I can honestly say that I now enjoy being a doctor knowing that my patients get the absolute best care available. By eliminating the bureaucracy of the large corporate health industry we are capable of focusing our time on patient care and not stockholder’s interests. We have expanded our capability with time saved from the boardroom allowing us to fully evaluate patients and prevent the impact of disease by uncovering hidden risks before catastrophe happens. Using our state of the art CT scan we can detect coronary heart disease early on before a heart attack occurs. We are proud to be able to offer to our community the services that can and will keep our neighbors and families healthy and active.

Our Philosophy

Family Emergency Room is dedicated to providing experienced emergency medicine staff who are passionate about providing accessible quality emergency medical care. We pride ourselves on our integrity and trustworthiness to our patients. We are fully accountable for both the quality and the affordability of our services for our patients and their families.
