Due to many patients seeking care due to the flu, wait times in Urgent Care and the Emergency Department may be longer than normal. We appreciate your patience.
The Emergency Department at Mayo Clinic Health System in Austin offers physician coverage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Referrals and expert consultants, including family medicine, pediatrics, gastroenterology, surgery, orthopedics and obstetrics are available as needed to treat patients. Diagnostic laboratory, radiology/imaging, respiratory care, and other critical care services are also available 24 hours a day.
If your emergency medicine provider suspects you are having a stroke, he or she will activate the stroke telemedicine hotline at Mayo Clinic, which connects them to a Mayo Clinic vascular neurologist. The vascular neurologist will provide a real-time, audiovisual consultation and evaluation. Having this technology available reduces the risk of stroke-related disabilities for our patients.
