El Paso Families Invited to Special Health Fair Saturday

El Paso Families are invited to attend a special health fair for school physicals with EKG screenings from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday, July 22, at the new UMC East clinic at 1521 Joe Battle Boulevard.

The event will also have free backpacks for the first 300 students who attend the event with their parent or guardian. This event will be more than a typical health fair for back to school physicals. UMC will feature Sports Physicals with EKG screenings ($20) for students getting ready to join their school’s sports teams.

These EKG screenings are to give parents extra peace of mind that their children are ready to start sports for the fall semester.

Features of this special family health fair include:
• First 300 children will receive a backpack!
• Super Hero Appearance (from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.)
• Informational Booths
• Free Health Screenings (BMI, Blood Pressure, Glucose)
• Sports Physical with EKG ($20 charge)

UMC will be offering Texas Health Steps check-ups and Well-Child check-ups for children with Medicaid or CHIP.

UMC Welcomes El Paso Leader in Pediatric Care

Families in east and west El Paso now have the benefit of one of the most experienced and admired pediatricians in our community with the addition of Mary C. Brower, M.D., to University Medical Center of El Paso’s new large clinics.  

El Paso’s two largest community clinics (UMC East – at 1521 Joe Battle; and UMC West – at 6600 North Desert Blvd.) opened last spring and have already served thousands of patients. Each clinic was designed and built to provide a near-hospital-like experience, in terms of variety of care, but in a friendly atmosphere close to El Paso’s greatly expanding communities. 

Throughout the last 20 years, Dr. Brower has cared for El Paso’s children and watched many of them grow to adulthood. “Her addition to UMC brings a level of pediatric experience and expertise to our clinics that families can depend on,” said Jacob Cintron, President & CEO. “She has cared for many thousands of patients and families in her career, and many of those patients have had children of their own and will only choose Dr. Brower for care. She is special. We are lucky to have her at UMC.”

As of today, families throughout El Paso can make appointments to see Dr. Brower at UMC East and UMC West clinics by calling (915) 790-5700

“I have always wanted to be part of a hospital such as UMC, a hospital that serves everyone in our community,” said Dr. Brower. “As a physician, we look for opportunities to care for patients who need us most, with facilities that offer the best technology that improves chances for each patient to return to good health. In El Paso, that place is UMC. I know that choosing the right place for general pediatric care can be very stressful for parents. That is why it is so important that I take time to get to know the parents, and this helps me provide more effective care for their children.”

Dr. Brower is a graduate of Stanford University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Biology; and graduated from Medical School at the University of Texas Medical Branch.  Prior to joining UMC, Dr. Brower worked with El Paso Pediatric Associates (since 1996).
