STHS ER McColl, the newest free-standing emergency department in Hidalgo County, is now open for business after a Community Open House and Ribbon Cutting over the weekend.

City leaders, EMS partners, and local law enforcement joined South Texas Health System administrators and staff in getting a first look at the new facility.

STHS ER McColl located at 4702 S. McColl Road will not only serve Edinburg, but all surrounding communities, providing 24-hour emergency treatment services for conditions including chest pain, broken bones, flu and other ailments, as well as, stabilizing treatment for stroke and trauma.

All of the South Texas Health System free-standing emergency departments also offer some outpatient services.

STHS ER McColl is staffed with medical personnel and is equipped with the same diagnostic technology available in South Texas Health System’s hospital-based emergency rooms.
