Such freestanding emergency centers (FECs) are popping up along busy byways in San Antonio and across the state. Open 24/7, FECs are staffed, equipped, and regulated more like a traditional hospital-based emergency room, and they charge higher rates to reflect that level of care.

“Our number of flu cases have stabilized,” said Texas MedClinic Chief Operating Officer and practicing physician Dr. David Gude. “We are strongly encouraging all who have the flu to stay at home; reduce contact with others in order to reduce the spread of the virus. We have been at peak flu season, and I expect that there will be a drop in the number of cases, and we will see a peak again later in the season.” Flu season traditionally runs October through May.
