EL PASO, Texas (PRWEB) October 14, 2015 -- Robins & Morton celebrated the topping out of The Hospitals of Providence Transmountain Campus, a new multi-million dollar teaching hospital and medical office building (MOB) in far West El Paso on October 12 at 10 a.m.
The celebration included a beam signing and catered breakfast with special appearances by the Canutillo High School band and local Boy Scouts.
The final beam was adorned with both the Texas and American flag next to an evergreen tree symbolizing best wishes for the future occupants, continued growth, a safe job and the important achievement in the building’s construction. It is estimated that more than 400 guests attended the event, including hospital staff, Texas Tech University employees, and city officials.
The facility is slated to open fall 2016 and will feature inpatient and outpatient surgery clinical departments, a level four trauma center, physical therapy services, an imaging department, recovery rooms, an endoscopy suite and central sterile supply. Once completed, the 140-bed teaching hospital will become the fourth acute care hospital under The Hospitals of Providence umbrella. The new hospital will provide an educational site for medical students, nursing students, resident physicians and faculty from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) El Paso and will eventually offer training for approximately 75 medical residents across a multi-year program.
“The Hospitals of Providence is committed to making the city of El Paso the preferred destination for health care services in the region, and we are excited about our collaboration with Texas Tech University Health Science Center El Paso to help us achieve this goal,” said Sally Hurt-Deitch, Market CEO for The Hospitals of Providence. “Together, we will offer an outstanding quality and exceptional service to Northwest El Paso, Southern New Mexico, and Juarez. The collaboration will facilitate the sharing of best practices among clinical leaders to further drive improvements in care. We are proud to take this important step in our quest to provide world-class healthcare to the communities we serve.”
