As the population of El Paso and surrounding communities continues to grow, so does the demand for quality healthcare.

Women’s Services Expansion

In an effort to better serve the El Paso community, Las Palmas Medical Center is investing $63 million to build a women’s services tower and add a helipad to allow for transfers from outlying communities.

As announced in May, the three-story tower will house 33 women’s services beds, a 35-bed neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and capacity for future growth. The roof of the tower will provide a new helipad for transfers of patients in need of critical care.

Phase one of the project is scheduled for completion in 2018. Construction is expected to begin late this year.

New Emergency Center

In July, Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare celebrated the opening of its second freestanding emergency center. The new Las Palmas Del Sol Emergency Center, located in west El Paso, operates 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 new emergency center serves as an extension of Las Palmas Medical Center and is located at the corner of Helen of Troy Drive and N. Resler Drive.
