Hospitals of Providence honors First Responders during National Emergency Medical Services Week

Since 1974, hospitals across the country have celebrated National Emergency Medical Services Week and invited their communities to recognize and thank the dedicated first responders who provide quality care throughout the year.

The Hospitals of Providence joined in the celebration by recognizing the men and women who commit their lives to providing critical, life-saving services and compassionate care to our patients and our community.

“The emergency department is the front door of our hospital and an essential part of our community,” said Nicholas Tejeda, Group Chief Executive Officer for The Hospitals of Providence.  “Residents rely on the EMS system and its trained professionals, who have incredible devotion to their jobs and community.  We’re proud to take this opportunity to show them how much we appreciate their dedication.”

Across the country and the world, first responders have been in the spotlight – taking on the challenges of providing care in the time of COVID-19.  Their professionalism, dedication and compassion is the cornerstone of care.

“Emergency Medical Service professionals play an incredibly important role, providing the first line of care for patients as they are transported to our hospital,” said Tejeda.

“They are first to answer the community’s call for help. They are the faces we see at times in our lives that are often very frightening – during critical illness, catastrophe or injury. These brave individuals are ready 24 hours a day, seven days a week to assist us, calm our anxieties and transport us to receive the care we need. National Emergency Medical Services Week allows each of us to say thank you to these heroes who are an invaluable resource to our community.”

President Gerald Ford authorized EMS Week in 1974 to celebrate EMS practitioners and the important work they do in our nation’s communities.  For more information, click here.

Elective Surgery Resumes at The Hospitals of Providence

The Hospitals of Providence officials announced that their campuses have resumed elective care for patients of the Borderland region.

Many patients have postponed medical care or are in need of treating new symptoms,” said Nicholas Tejeda, Group Chief Executive Officer for The Hospitals of Providence.  “It is our role and responsibility to ensure we are able to provide much needed care to our community.”

Elective procedures are now being scheduled at The Hospitals of Providence Memorial Campus, Sierra Campus, East Campus, Transmountain Campus and Specialty Campus.

As this medically necessary care carefully resumes, The Hospitals of Providence have been in close communication with the medical staff of its hospitals about protocols to prevent and treat COVID-19, safety protocols as CDC, CMS and state guidelines evolved, new services such as telehealth and other general updates.

“Over the last several weeks, we have demonstrated that our medical community can come together to prepare and treat COVID-19, while safely caring for other illnesses. Our health system is safe for elective and emergent care.  We have rigorous protocols in place, adequate access to testing and protective personal equipment, as well as well-trained and experienced staff,” said Tejeda.

The Hospitals of Providence is committed to universal safety for patients, physicians and staff. It has taken every precaution, combining infection prevention processes, training, testing and supply of personal protective equipment.

The following resources are in place as elective care resumes:

  • Screening for all patients, visitors and staff prior to entry at the hospital
  • Social distancing practices including limiting visitors and vendors
  • Separate care pathways, areas, and staff for potential or confirmed COVID-19 patients
  • Universal masking for all caregiver’s staff and patients
  • Access to COVID-19 testing for all patients, physicians and staff who require it
  • Ample inventory and pipeline of protective personal equipment
  • Heightened infection prevention policies across all sites of care

“Our team of physicians’ and staffs’ perseverance and willingness to adapt is a reflection of our commitment to provide exceptional care,” said Tejeda.  “We are inspired and assured that with our continued teamwork we will be able to safely increase our community’s access to elective surgery,”

Hospitals of Providence celebrate National Nurses Week

In recent weeks, and as always, our nurses have demonstrated dedication, compassion and resiliency during one of the most trying times in our nation’s history, and the Hospitals of Providence honors their hard work as part of National Nurses Week.

“During these extraordinary times, we are deeply thankful for all of our nurses and the hard work they put in each and every day,” said Nicholas Tejeda, Group Chief Executive Officer for The Hospitals of Providence.  “This celebratory week is about paying tribute to them and the daily impact they have on our patients’ lives.”

National Nurses Week is celebrated annually from May 6, also known as National Nurses Day, through May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. The year 2020, Florence’s 200th birthday, has been declared the Year of the Nurse.

“Like Florence Nightingale, hundreds of thousands of nurses stand on the front lines ready to care for our family, friends and loved ones,” THOP officials shared.  “as Florence Nightingale did in her time, our nurses’ represent a profession of advocacy and strength and are respected for their compassion and commitment to patient care.”

Nursing has been described as an art and a science that embraces dedicated people with varied interests and strengths. Our nurses have many roles – from staff nurse to nursing leader and educator to nurse practitioner – and they serve these roles with a passion for the profession and a strong commitment to patient safety.

“This week The Hospitals of Providence will celebrate our nurses to thank them for their contributions,” said Tejeda.  “Now more than ever, we are truly proud to recognize the difference our nurses make in the lives of our community through their tireless effort, expertise, care and compassion.”

During National Nurses Week, hospitals and other healthcare organizations across the country are encouraged to educate the public about the role nurses play in caring for our community.

EPISD Education Foundation will continue to award scholarships to seniors

High-school seniors in the District will still receive scholarships from the EPISD Education Foundation in May even if the school closures prevent organizers from hosting award ceremonies.

“We had an overwhelming response from our seniors this year and remain committed to helping our seniors reach their college dreams,” said foundation president Russell Wiggs. “Given the current circumstances, we know our scholarships will be especially important to our seniors.”

Students who are selected as scholars can expect to get an emailed letter in May with details on how to access their scholarship to ensure their college or university receives the funds for the fall semester.

The EPISD Education Foundation’s biggest fundraiser – the annual District Address – was canceled this spring, but many of the sponsors and donors chose to continue their financial support to the foundation to support both scholarships and classroom grant programs.

“We are grateful for the businesses and our community partners who understand the financial need of our seniors – especially ABM, who committed $25,000 to the District Address,” said superintendent Juan E. Cabrera.  “Their outpouring of generosity and support for the Class of 2020 is humbling. It gives our seniors a glimmer of hope during this uncertain time.”

Sponsors include: ABM, Engage2Learn, Jacobs Engineering, Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare, Hospitals of Providence, Teachers Federal Credit Union, Texas Gas Services, Mounce Green Myers Safi, Hilltop Securities, Norton Fulbright Rose, Piper Jaffray and Georgina Williams and the EPISD Council of PTAs.

“We also are grateful for the employees of EPISD who participated in the Employee Giving Campaign in the fall,” Wiggs said. “Every dollar we receive makes a difference to our EPISD students and teachers.”

Hospitals of Providence Sierra Campus 1st to offer device for patients with Mitral Valve Disease

Officials with the Hospitals of Providence announced that their Sierra Campus is the first in El Paso to offer the minimally invasive mitral valve repair using the MitraClip procedure as an option for patients who are too high-risk for traditional open heart surgery.

“With this technology we are seeing a reduction in the need for invasive open heart surgery,” said Dr. Chalam Mulukutla, board-certified interventional cardiologist, who performed the procedure.  “We are excited to be bringing new treatment options to El Paso to help heart patients get back to their everyday life.”

The condition, called mitral regurgitation (MR), is the most common heart valve disease.  A leak in the mitral valve occurs when the flaps, or doors, do not close completely, allowing blood to flow back into the heart as it pumps.  The heart has to work harder, as a result, to keep blood flowing and can raise the risk for life-threatening stroke and heart failure.

When MR becomes severe, it can profoundly affect a person’s quality of life by causing shortness of breath, extreme fatigue, and other debilitating symptoms.  Mitral regurgitation affects more than 4 million Americans – nearly one in 10 people aged 75 and above.

MitraClip, made by Abbott Vascular, repairs the mitral valve without the need for an invasive surgical procedure.  The device is guided into place using a thin tube (or catheter) through a small incision in a leg vein.  The clip is then attached to the flaps of the mitral valve to help it close more completely and restore normal blood flow.  Patients tend to have a short hospital stay and experience improved heart function and symptoms almost immediately.

“With this technology we are seeing a reduction in the need for invasive open heart surgery,” said Dr. Chalam Mulukutla, board-certified interventional cardiologist, who performed the procedure.  “We are excited to be bringing new treatment options to El Paso to help heart patients get back to their everyday life.”

Medications for the condition only assist with symptom management and do not stop the progression of the disease, so typically open heart mitral valve surgery is the standard of care treatment.

Hospital officials add that, now that the MitraClip device has been approved for U.S. patients with severe symptomatic degenerative MR, the number of invasive mitral valve surgeries performed may be reduced.

“The Hospitals of Providence Sierra Campus is proud to be the first hospital in El Paso to offer patients suffering from mitral valve disease a nonsurgical treatment option,” said Rob J. Anderson, chief executive officer for The Hospitals of Providence Sierra Campus.  “We are excited to be able to continue the expansion of our cardiac services to the El Paso community and offering this new treatment option for many of our heart failure patients.”

Earlier this year,officials at the Sierra Campus announced they performed the first Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) case to treat patients with aortic stenosis.

The campus was also recognized as one of ten hospitals in the nation to be designated as a HeartCARE Center of Excellence.
