El Paso, TX (SPHN) — Sierra Providence is bringing access to quality emergency medical care for residents in Northeast El Paso with the grand opening of a new, fully equipped and staffed Emergency Room that will treat emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
In order to better serve our growing Northeast community, they have converted the Sierra Providence Urgent Care Center to an Emergency Room that allows us to treat higher acuity, emergent conditions in a convenient, close to home location. This means that no matter what time of the day or night, you can rely on 24/7 emergency care for patients of all ages, for even the most advanced illness or injuries that can range from chest pain and stroke symptoms to asthma, broken bones or for other emergent health problems.
"With the new Northeast Emergency Room, we are investing to meet our community's need for high quality and convenient care for emergent conditions," said Eric Evans, CEO of Sierra Medical Center, Providence Memorial and Providence Children's Hospital. "Notably, our patients can take comfort that the new Northeast Emergency Room is fully integrated with the broad resources and expertise of the entire Sierra Providence Health Network should additional care be required."
This new Northeast Emergency Room is equipped to care for a wide range of emergency medical care needs such as diagnosing and stabilizing cardiac arrest, stroke symptoms, breathing problems and trauma in a comfortable, patient-centered atmosphere with easy access to the Northeast families.
The transition from an Urgent Care Center to an Emergency Room delivers the Northeast community access to 24 hour/365 day emergency services by emergency physicians and nurses with advanced lifesaving, imaging and laboratory capabilities.
