News

ODESSA, Texas (Big 2/Fox 24) – With hospitals fighting COVID-19 for months some West Texans are wondering if their Emergency Rooms are open for patients.

According to MCH, as a result of the confusion, many members of the community are not getting the care they need or are waiting to get medical care that needs immediate attention.

“There has been no drop off in the quality that Medical Center Hospital has provided. Honestly, with the pandemic our volumes have gone down and we have actually become much more efficient with our care and we have become much more timely,” said Jeffery Pinnow M.D., an Attending Physician in the ER.
