Emergency Services


A medical emergency is any acute injury or illness that poses an immediate threat to a person’s health. The emergency may cause death or short and/or long term impairment. 

In the event of an emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. The nearest emergency room is in Christus Spohn Kleberg Hospital located at 1311 General Cavazos, Kingsville, TX.   

If you call 911 and you suspect you have COVID-19, please notify the 911 operator of your concerns. 

If you are going to the emergency room by private auto and you suspect you have COVID-19, please notify them of your concerns.  

You do not need a referral to go to the emergency room.   

Any patient arriving at the Health Care Clinic in a medical emergency situation will be referred to the nearest emergency room. 

All costs incurred through ambulances services and services at the emergency room are the responsibility of the patient.
