Leading the Way to Better Emergency Care
The Texas Association of Freestanding Emergency Centers (TAFEC) is the first and only statewide association in the U.S. created especially to represent freestanding emergency centers.
Our members work to ensure that all Texans have timely access to high-quality emergency medical care. As licensed, regulated, fully functioning ERs equipped to handle medical emergencies 24/7, our members provide expert care at convenient community locations with minimal waiting.

One United VoiceThe Texas Association of Freestanding Emergency Centers (TAFEC) and its members support consistent, open, proactive advocacy that promotes the fair and regulated growth of Texas’ freestanding emergency-center industry – in turn helping ensure timely access for all Texans to high-quality emergency medical care. We believe it is essential that an industry of regulated healthcare facilities speak with one united voice, and have a seat at the table when licensure laws and relevant regulations are discussed, negotiated or amended.
