Providing 24/7 care to residents of Portland and the Coastal Bend region, our 10,000-square-foot facility offers an answer for patients who previously had to cross Harbor Bridge for emergency treatment, diagnostic services, or imaging needs. And as part of the larger Corpus Christi Medical Center system, Northshore Emergency Center gives patients peace of mind in knowing that they are participating in a larger continuum of care. That means easier transfers and shorter wait times should a higher need of care become necessary.

Founded in 1962, Corpus Christi Medical Center (CCMC) has spent almost 50 years caring for the residents of Corpus Christi and its surrounding communities. We strive to provide expert care that is both easily accessible and friendly. 

Northshore Emergency Center, like all emergency departments of Corpus Christi Medical Center, charges rates comparable to a hospital emergency room.  The hospital will bill your insurance company or health benefits plan for services rendered to you.

In addition to Northshore Emergency Center, within our system, emergency care can be found at:
