Dozens of bikers, joined by Mr. and Ms. Claus – as well as ‘The Grinch – were up bright and early, delivering toys to those children who spend Christmas in the hospital this holiday season. The toys were recently collected during the El Paso Motorcycle Coalition annual Toy Parade.
The group went floor to floor, and room by room, making sure each child spent time with Santa and received a gift.
The collation includes nearly 60 motorcycle groups from around El Paso.

Staff Report March 10, 2017Regional NewsComments Off on Providence Children’s Hospital Pediatric Outpatient Rehabilitation Services Relocates
In an effort to further improve services to pediatric patients, The Hospitals of Providence Children’s Hospital (PCH) is relocating the Pediatric Outpatient Rehabilitation Services to 2101 North Oregon Street.
The services will be located approximately 2 miles from its prior location at 1740 Curie Drive.
For PCH, a relocation site means an accessible and suitable locale complemented with a team of highly skilled therapists to progress in providing quality pediatric care. Certified pediatric physical, occupational, and speech therapy clinicians uniquely provide care through evidence-based approaches.
“Our new location and enhanced services will help us to continue to grow and evolve in providing exceptional value to our pediatric patients and their families, and superior service along the way,” said Irene Perreault, Administrative Director for The Hospitals of Providence Children’s Hospital. “Our priority is that the Pediatric Outpatient Rehabilitation Services provide the treatment necessary at a convenient location for children and their families.”
Additionally, the therapy department services stand alone as the only comprehensive clinic in the El Paso region with pediatric board-certified clinical specialists, pediatric vital stimulation certified therapists, Neurodevelopmental treatment (NDT) certified therapists, and neonatal tough massage certified specialists.
The new centralized location makes the greatest difference in delivery and accessibility of services unique to PCH. Pediatric outpatient rehabilitation patients and their families will have greater access to our specialists to treat a wide variety of diagnoses through therapeutic play activities, private therapy sessions, sensory integration, balance training, and the use of numerous specialty programs to include dysphagia, dance and sports rehab, aquatic therapy and social group therapy for Autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
Staff Report June 3, 2016NewsComments Off on Providence Children’s Hospital Kicks Off ‘Healthy Over Hungry’ Cereal Drive
Providence Children’s Hospital is leading a community effort to provide area children and adults struggling with hunger with a healthy breakfast during the summer through its Healthy Over Hungry Cereal Drive benefitting El Pasoans Fighting Hunger.
The drive kicks off Friday, June 3 and runs through Friday, June 10.
“At Providence Children’s Hospital, we recognize the impact hunger has on health and nutrition, and our staff is eager to make a difference,” said Irene Perreault, Administrative Director at Providence Children’s Hospital. “We recognize the importance of beginning each day with a nutritious breakfast and, through this drive, we hope to help the many in our community struggling with food insecurity.”
“We appreciate Providence Children’s Hospital for hosting the Healthy Over Hungry Cereal Drive and are grateful for its commitment to building a healthy community,” said Victor Nevarez, CEO of El Pasoans Fighting Hunger.
“Summer is a particularly difficult time for our food bank because many children in need can no longer rely on their school meals for a nutritious breakfast, so their families often turn to us for help. Thanks to Providence Children’s Hospital and the Healthy Over Hungry Cereal Drive, many families will have a healthy, whole-grain cereal breakfast every summer morning.”
In El Paso, TX more than 10,000 free or reduced-fee breakfasts and lunches are served daily during the school year. Whole-grain cereal, when part of a healthy, balanced breakfast including dairy, fruit and lean protein, is a popular food item that experts say can easily address the hunger gap during the summer months when children are not in school.
Healthy cereal contains one serving of whole grain, no more than 200 calories per serving, six grams or less of sugar and at least three grams of fiber per serving. It should also be free of artificial colors and dyes.
Donations of healthy cereal to the Healthy Over Hungry Cereal Drive will be collected from June 3 through June 10 at lobbies of Memorial Campus, 2001 N. Oregon, Sierra Campus, 1625 Medical Center Drive, and East Campus, 3280 Joe Battle.
