Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare has announced its second Las Palmas Del Sol Emergency Center in El Paso. This one will serve west El Paso and is an extension of Las Palmas Medical Center. The new facility will be located at the corner of Helen of Troy Drive and N. Resler Drive and is slated to open to the public in late-summer 2016.

For patients who do not live close to a hospital, a freestanding emergency department can give them access to lifesaving medical treatment sooner. This new freestanding emergency center will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, as a full-service, freestanding emergency department staffed by board-certified physicians and nurses who are trained in emergency care. The emergency center will feature seven treatment beds; a CT scanner; advanced testing capabilities, including radiological testing; and a medical lab. Patients who require inpatient care will be transported from the facility to area hospitals.

In 2015, Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare opened a freestanding emergency center in east El Paso, which serves as an extension of Del Sol Medical Center.

KFOX and El Paso Inc. recently shared news of this latest addition to the West El Paso community.
