32 year-old Foyekemi Ikyaator opens her own Emergency Room in America – Kimberly Pointer
Dr. Foyekẹmi Ikyaator, ER Physician and Medical Director, Life Savers at her Houston, Texas facility
Life Savers Emergency Room was created to meet the medical needs of Houston. They are a stand-alone emergency room, meaning they are not attached to a hospital.
Dr. Foye enjoys Emergency Medicine tremendously and at Life Savers ER, they are able to provide the same ER care much more efficiently than at the hospital because they have an onsite laboratory, radiology equipment and pharmacy. There is no waiting in line for your labs to get sent or processed. Nor is there the risk of waiting in the waiting room for hours to be seen by a doctor.
A graduate of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, the Nigerian native was practically raised in the States and groomed to care for the physical well being of people.
No doubt coming from a structured support system that purported academic superiority, Dr. Foye received her education on a full academic scholarship. A self-proclaimed human rights proponent, the silver lining of Dr. Foye is simply helping people.
After completing her residency in Emergency Medicine in 2012 at the Emory School of Medicine and Public Health in Atlanta, GA., Dr. Foye moved to Houston, TX. to further her practice. She gained extensive experience working within the St. Luke’s Health System. Within a few short years, she decided it was time to do what she wanted to do.
Today, Dr. Foye directs the free-standing Life Savers Emergency Room where she can take more time with her patients and counsel them on specific needs as well as promote the kind of medicine that she believes is necessary in today’s community.
