Neighbors Emergency Center Porter Commemorates First Year in Community
HOUSTON, Texas, March 14, 2017 – Neighbors Emergency Center Porter is honored to recognize its first year of service to the local community. Neighbors Emergency Center Porter began seeing patients on March 12, 2016 and reports nearly 4,000 patients have received outstanding ER care at this location since it opened. The Porter center is located at 22678 Hwy. 59, Porter, TX 77365. The center’s phone number is 281-354-4654.
In its first year, Neighbors Porter achieved the Gold Seal of Approval by The Joint Commission, a nationally recognized independent accreditation organization committed to certifying facilities with the safest, highest quality, best-value health care.
For freestanding emergency centers (FECs), this is a volunteer accreditation. Neighbors willingly holds itself to a higher standard of quality operation and clinical care than other FECs who have chosen not to pursue this rigorous accreditation. This elite endorsement aligns with Neighbors’ purpose of providing extraordinary care that is dedicated to Making Lives Better every day.
Besides extraordinary ER care with short wait times, this Neighbors Emergency Center has also brought approximately 30 jobs to the local economy by hiring board-certified physicians and medical teams with emergency room expertise that treat all adult and pediatric injuries and illnesses.
The Porter location’s Medical Director is Radheshyam Miryala, MD, and the Facility Director is Erica Paige, RN. Neighbors is a product of the community with medical teams living near the centers they work; therefore, Neighbors is aligned with local organizations and events that are important to the community and the patients we serve.
“Neighbors Emergency Center Porter is proud to celebrate it’s first year anniversary of service to the Greater East Montgomery County,” said Miryala. “We greatly appreciate all the support from the Chamber of Commerce, local developers and businesses, and the families that have benefitted from our services. We continually strive to offer unrivaled quality in Emergency Care Services with our concierge level of personal touch. We are excited to be the Best Neighbors Ever for Porter and the surrounding communities.”
Being active and connected to the Porter community is paramount to Neighbors and part of what makes Neighbors Emergency Center the industry leader in freestanding ER care.
Neighbors values its strong community ties and was proud to sponsor the Pink Out game jerseys for Holley’s Hope, the organization created to honor Christian Holley, a very special young man who passed away from a brain tumor at age 21. Neighbors Emergency Center Porter presented Porter High School Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Jim Holley, Christian’s father, with a donation to this important partner in the fight against cancer.
As a guardian of the next generation, Neighbors Porter was delighted to sponsor the “Neighbor of the Game” program at Porter and New Caney high schools that spotlighted student athletes and student trainers for their hard work and model citizenship in the classroom and on the playing field. Neighbors is also proud to be a sponsor of Texan Drive Stadium, part of New Caney Independent School District in Porter.
To incorporate health lessons and safety tips for the younger set, Neighbors Emergency Center Porter sponsored story time and teddy bear ERs at local libraries. Neighbors’ mascot Scrubs the Bear has also made appearances at these story times to meet and greet young readers.
Families are important to Neighbors and the Porter center was excited to participate in the Lake Houston Family YMCA’s 25th Annual Bridgefest on February 11. It was the yearly celebration of the bridge being built on West Lake Houston to connect Northern Kingwood and Porter to the Humble and Atascocita areas.
Neighbors’ core values of being compassionate and patient-centered; treating patients in a nurturing and honorable way; having friendly and welcoming employees; and always being transparent, accountable and cost-conscious are demonstrated through these and numerous other events that Neighbors Emergency Center Porter was proud to participate in during its first year in the community.
