Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare is constructing a new facility specifically intended to serve residents and visitors of Horizon City, Soccoro, Ysleta and far East El Paso. Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare - Horizon will treat patients with medical emergencies after opening in spring of 2020.

The 10,800-square-foot facility located at 13401 Gateway Boulevard West will serve as an extension of Del Sol Medical Center.

“Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare is committed to providing the highest quality of care to our patients. We’re excited to bring these services closer to the residents of Horizon City and other surrounding communities,” David Shimp, chief executive officer of Del Sol Medical Center, said. “Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare - Horizon will provide the same high level of care and expertise in a location that is much more convenient for these communities.”

The Horizon facility will operate 24/7 and will include a full-service emergency department staffed by board-certified physicians and nurses trained in trauma care. Upon completion, the facility will include 10 exam rooms; two imaging rooms and one trauma room, as well as a CT scanner; advanced testing capabilities, including radiological testing; and a medical lab. Patients requiring more extensive inpatient care will be transported within the Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare network or to other area hospitals.

The El Paso Inc. recently published an article announcing the facility.
