El Paso, TX — Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare announced today that Las Palmas Medical Center and Del Sol Medical Center received a Healthgrades 2023 America’s 250 Best Hospitals Award™. This distinction recognizes hospitals for superior performance in providing care for conditions and procedures across multiple specialty services. Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare hospitals were recognized among the top 5% of the 4,500 hospitals nationwide included in the assessment for clinical excellence, according to Healthgrades.

Additionally, Las Palmas Medical Center and Del Sol Medical Center earned Healthgrades Specialty Excellence Awards™ for critical care, surgical care, bariatric surgery and pulmonary care, placing them in the top 10% of hospitals nationwide for outstanding clinical outcomes in each specialty area.

“This award underscores our dedication to providing exceptional care to El Pasoans,” Don Karl, chief executive office of Las Palmas Medical Center, said. “We’re proud to be part of a group of hospitals nationwide that are raising healthcare standards and ensuring that patient care and safety are a top priority.”

From 2019 through 2021, patients treated in America’s 250 Best Hospitals had, on average, a 28.7% lower risk of dying than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive the award, as measured across 31 rated conditions and procedures for which mortality is the outcome.* During the same period, if all hospitals performed similarly to those achieving the Healthgrades America's 250 Best Hospitals Award, over 160,000 lives could potentially have been saved.
