With an investment of around $9 million, Doctors Hospital Emergency Room Saunders will feature six exam rooms, three rapid medical exam spaces and three internal waiting spaces. Completion of Doctors Hospital Emergency Room Saunders is scheduled for the summer of 2019.

“Central Laredo is a thriving area in our city,” states Jim Resendez, CEO of Doctors Hospital. “Our community deserves to have ER access close to home and we look forward to our grand opening in the summer of 2019.”

Conveniently located at 1300 Saunders Street (1301 E. Olive Street), with easy access to main city arteries including McPherson Road, Highway 59 and IH 35, Doctors Hospital Emergency Room Saunders will also offer diagnostic laboratory and radiology services, including X-ray, CT and ultrasound.
