EL PASO - Folks in the Northeast now have an alternative to the emergency room.

It's an urgent care center, at 11380 Gateway North. Urgent care centers typically handle minor emergencies and illnesses, and are considered more cost-effective than the emergency room.

The center is operated by the Sierra Providence Health Network, and has eight exam rooms, two procedure rooms and an x-ray room.

Edmundo Castaneda, the CEO of the Sierra Medical Center, said it's a convenient option for people suddenly facing minor, unexpected medical problems.

“It's competitive, given the other urgent care centers in the market...patients can come in on a walk-in basis. No scheduled appointments are necessary,” said Castaneda.

The center is open seven days a week, and most holidays. All insurance plans are accepted.

Grrrrrrrrrrret..........its about time were starting to get some acknowledgement that we exist in the northeast, eastside and westside have everything, so were just waiting on some more restaurants and more hang outs! ( a yogoberry would be nice)......sad but true the northeast side of town has NOTHING! ;-0

This is great news especially if they accept Veterans who don't have access to Urgent Care. We have to schedule an appointment even if we are in dire need of help. If we are sent to the ER at William Beaumont Army Medical Hospital the wait can be hours and only after uniformed personnel are seen first.
