About SignatureCare Emergency Center

SignatureCare Emergency Center is a premier, integrated healthcare provider that strives to anticipate and respond to the emergency medical needs of the community. It was founded by three talented local physicians with extensive clinical experience; Hashibul Hannan, MD, Aaron Braun, DO, and Kanti Bansal, MD.

SignatureCare Emergency Center and its employees take pride in providing excellent medical care to members of the local community.

Our History

In 2013, Dr. Hashibul Hannan, MD, Dr. Aaron Braun, DO, and Dr. Kanti Bansal, MD, driven by their passion for quality emergency medical care, saw the need for emergency centers built in local communities that are dedicated solely to meeting the medical care needs of those communities.

To fulfill that need, they took over Physician ER , a local emergency center in the Mission Bend / Sugar Land area and later renamed it SignatureCare Emergency Center.

As the ER thrived, the three friends saw the need to expand to other locations in the Greater Houston area. This led to the establishment of freestanding emergency rooms in Montrose (Houston Midtown), Memorial City, Houston Heights, and Westchase areas. Locations in South Austin, Stafford, and College Station/Bryan, TX soon followed.

In late 2018, they acquired six new locations including Odessa and Midland in West Texas, Paris and Texarkana in Northeast Texas, and Bellaire and Copperfield in the Houston area. Additional emergency rooms in Cypress-FM 1960 (Houston area), Killeen, Lewisville, Pflugerville, Atascocita/Humble, Spring, and Plano, TX soon followed.
