Busy autonomous emergencies

Paul Hamilton, an executive at Premier ER & Urgent Care, with offices in Waco, Woodway, Temple and San Marcos, had a lot to say on Thursday when business leaders met by Zoom to discuss the local economy.

“This month, in August, our four clinics are packed,” said Hamilton. “Our system is the busiest it has ever been.”

He said the resurgence of COVID-19 is creating a ripple effect. The hospital beds are full. The ambulance bays are backed up. Emergency rooms are filling up. So people with health issues that may not be related to COVID-19 instead entrust their business to Premier ER. Hamilton said the Prime Minister was making hospital referrals under dire circumstances. Recently, the search for a hospital system willing and able to accept a referral ended in El Paso, Hamilton said.

Premier ER’s website shows the company is attempting to fill 19 positions across its four clinics, with current enrollment bonuses.
