Since being purchased by Medical City Healthcare last April, Medical City Frisco has invested more than $5 million in expansion and capital improvements to its emergency department. The emergency room grew from 2 to 9 beds, with all-new medical equipment. In addition, a dedicated emergency department parking lot was constructed to accommodate expanded needs and EMS personnel transporting patients. The emergency department is staffed by board certified emergency medicine physicians.

“Frisco is growing rapidly and so are we,” said Charles Gressle, CEO of Medical City Frisco. “By expanding our emergency services, we are giving the many families who live in the greater Frisco community more immediate access to quality, leading edge emergency care and treatment.”
