About Methodist ER Legacy Trails

Methodist Hospital and Methodist Children's Hospital have expanded the campus's emergency department with their newest location, Methodist ER Legacy Trails. The new freestanding emergency room is located just off the intersection of Route 151 and Potranco Rd. You'll see our building just down from Starbuck's and on the same side of the road as Wendy's.

Methodist ER Legacy Trails is open 24/7, daily to provide emergency medical care for both adults and children in our community. Our emergency services team is fully trained and equipped to handle a variety of adult and pediatric conditions. And, if you need to be transferred to either Methodist Hospital or Methodist Children's Hospital to receive more specialized care, there are no extra expenses involved.

For more information about our emergency center, please call (210) 575-9211.
