To keep pace with an increasing demand for quality, concierge-level emergency care, Austin Emergency Center (AEC) opened its second freestanding emergency center on September 19 at 4015 South Lamar Boulevard. On October 19 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., AEC will be hosting an Open House to commemorate the grand opening of its latest critical care facility. The public is invited to join the friendly staff of AEC to learn more about its services and to tour the new facility. Austin Chamber of Commerce will perform a ribbon-cutting ceremony, and ice cream will be served. Fun activities for the kids are planned, including face painting, a balloon artist, and an ambulance in the parking lot for families and kids to view. A second Open House for area physicians and medical staff will be held on October 23, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

AEC was founded by four board-certified emergency medicine physicians with more than 50 years’ combined ER experience, including previous practice in cardiac, stroke and trauma centers, military medicine, pediatrics, toxicology, and practice in both urban and rural ERs.

AEC provides the quality and level of medical care of a hospital-based ER with a private, patient-focused practice—all right in the convenience of your own neighborhood. All testing is done quickly, without the delays associated with traditional, hospital-based emergency departments. In contrast to an urgent care clinic, AEC is a freestanding emergency room. They use the state-of-the-art 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.

AEC South Lamar is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They are conveniently located at 4015 South Lamar Blvd. To better serve you, AEC has a second location at 3563 Far West Blvd., Suite 110. To learn more about the myriad services they provide, please visit or call 512-774-5780.
