Dr. Erica Daniels
Medical Director, SignatureCare Emergency Center
What is your 30-second “elevator speech” about what SignatureCare does?
Established in 2013.
Driven by their passion for quality emergency medical care, Dr. Hashibul Hannan, MD, Dr. Aaron Braun, DO and Dr. Kanti Bansal, MD, saw the need for community-based emergency centers dedicated solely to meeting the medical care needs of those communities.
To fulfill that need, they took over a local emergency center in the Mission Bend / Sugar Land area, and later renamed it SignatureCare Emergency Center.
As the ER thrived, the three friends saw the need to expand to other locations in the Greater Houston area. This led to the establishment of freestanding emergency rooms in Montrose Memorial City, Houston Heights and Westchase areas. Locations in South Austin, Stafford and College Station, TX soon followed.
In late 2018, they acquired six new locations including Odessa and Midland in West Texas, Paris and Texarkana in Northeast Texas, and Bellaire and Copperfield in the Houston area. Additional emergency rooms in Cypress-FM 1960 and Killeen, TX are due to open in early 2019.
Talk a bit about the array of services that SignatureCare provides.
Our emergency rooms are equipped to treat a wide range of medical emergencies. We function like your local hospital ER, without the wait.
SignatureCare Emergency Center, the fastest growing emergency rooms in Texas, offers 24-hour ER services including lab work, X-ray and CT scan. Each ER is equipped to treat most minor or major medical emergencies. If your treatment requires overnight observation - our freestanding emergency centers have state-of-the-art observation rooms and highly trained medical staff. Our ER doctors are available on site 24 hours. This will assure you have the best medical care.
What makes SignatureCare unique?
Average wait time to see a medical doctor in our ER is 10 minutes or less. Our 24-hour ER provides emergency treatment for most immediate medical care needs for adults and children.
How many patients do you serve in an average week at the Bellaire location?
We are excited to hold a ribbon cutting at the Bellaire location in June. It seems like an ideal location. In terms of number of patients served, how does the Bellaire location compare to other SignatureCare locations? What has the response been in terms of the surrounding community?
The community has embraced Signature Care as a local freestanding ER where patient care and comfort comes first. Volumes at the Bellaire location are increasing every month.
We are proud that SignatureCare is one of our corporate partners. Thank you for your incredible support. Why is it important for SignatureCare to partner with the Greater Houston LGBT Chamber?
We want everyone in the community to know that at Signature Care you will not be treated any differently than anyone else. We are here for you. Our goal is to get you well again in a safe and welcoming environment, so it is important that we partner with the Greater Houston LGBT Chamber to express our commitment to providing quality care to all members of our diverse communities.
