CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Health System announced today that, in alignment with its strategic imperative around growth, it has acquired the two San Antonio Elite Care 24-Hour Emergency Rooms.

The two facilities are located at:

–    13402 San Pedro, San Antonio, TX  78216 (Hwy. 281 and Bitters)

–    8703 Bandera Road, San Antonio, TX  78250

Effective 7:00 a.m. this morning, the Bandera location closed its operation and will reopen in May 2017 as The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio Emergency Center with 10 patient rooms, including one triage room.

The Hwy. 281 and Bitters location has been closed for a period of time and will also reopen in May 2017, seeing adult and pediatric patients and will be co-branded as CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Emergency Center and The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio Emergency Center, bringing emergent pediatric telemedicine to the area. This facility provides a total of nine patient rooms, inducing one triage room.

Jeff Addicks, General Counsel for Elite Care 24-Hour Emergency Rooms commented, “When Elite made the business decision to move from the Bexar County market, they identified CHRISTUS Santa Rosa as an opportune health care provider to take over their San Antonio locations.”

The facilities will be fully operational emergency centers with services including CT, X-ray, pharmacy, radiology, lab, and ultrasound.

Dominic Dominguez, CHRISTUS Health – South Texas senior vice president of operations noted, “It’s an honor to expand our emergency services footprint into these fast growing areas of San Antonio and to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ to those who seek our care.”
