Frisco, Texas-based Code 3 Emergency Partners is continuing an innovative growth strategy, recently announcing that they are soon to begin construction on an Airport-based Urgent Care and Pharmacy at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, Nev. The company expects to open its Urgent Care doors at McCarran mid-late May 2017.

Emergency Physician and Code 3 CEO, Carrie de Moor, MD, FACEP, said, “Our growth strategy has been based on finding unique locations with the need for access to acute unscheduled medical care. Employees and travelers alike will be able to benefit from the cost effectiveness and efficiency of our model for the delivery of acute unscheduled healthcare.”

Code 3 Emergency Partners, LLC is privately owned and currently manages Code 3 Emergency Room and Urgent Care hybrid facilities in Texas. The company was founded in late 2014 and opened their first Freestanding Emergency Center in McKinney, Texas, in May 2015, and has expanded to additional hybrid Freestanding ER and Urgent Care Centers in Carrollton and Mesquite, Texas.

Additional dual model ER/Urgent Care facilities are currently in various stages of construction in Denton and Rockport, Texas, along with an in-Terminal Urgent Care at DFW International Airport and a hybrid ER and Urgent Care Facility in the DFW Airport Southgate Plaza.

Code 3 states that they are in the planning stages of bringing hybrid Emergency and Urgent Care Centers to the Las Vegas area in addition to the McCarran Urgent Care and Pharmacy.

“Code 3 Emergency Partners is committed to providing high quality healthcare in a way that is comfortable, affordable, and cutting edge. We believe that taking an approach as a true, open minded partner in the communities we serve is the key to our success,” said Peter Brokish MD, FACEP, chief medical informatics officer and former Las Vegas resident.

The group is home to more than 100 board certified/board eligible emergency medicine physicians from all over the country, who are residency specialty trained in emergency medicine. Subspecialties represented in the group include pediatric emergency medicine, EMS, travel medicine, critical care, ultrasound, toxicology and leadership and advocacy.

The 1500-sq. ft. clinic and pharmacy in the McCarran International Airport will be equipped with x-ray, laboratory and pharmacy, as well as capabilities to provide IV fluids, medications and convenient remedies for travelers that may have had a bit too much fun before leaving Las Vegas.
