Letter from CEOs
Last week The Hospitals of Providence kicked off our Breast Cancer Awareness activities with a beautiful tradition called The Power of Pink. Over a dozen El Paso women who are battling breast cancer were treated to full makeovers and a glamorous photoshoot. The beautiful photos are now displayed on the Power of Pink exhibit that will travel to many health care providers around our city. Our Imaging Center West was proud to host the unveiling event. Over a hundred women joined us at our facility to celebrate the kick-off. The breast cancer awareness festivities continued Friday morning at the eighth annual Pink Walk at our East Campus. Hundreds of people – community members, students, cheerleaders and THOP employees joined together for the one-mile walk around our East Campus. The Pink Walk is our special way of celebrating the lives of those that have battled cancer in the past as well as lifting the spirits of those currently fighting the disease – showing our commitment to NEVER give up! October is also a time that we pause and thank all our team members that work so hard in our Breast & Women’s Health Centers and our Imaging Centers. These hard-working team members provide guidance and comfort to women (and men) every day. While October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, we need to stay vigilant all year long educating women about breast health and the importance of early detection. As always, Thank you for making The Hospitals of Providence your healthcare provider of choice.

Emergency Room Launches Concierge Service
The Hospitals of Providence Memorial Campus has launched Concierge ER – a program that caters to the needs of emergency room patients. The Concierge ER program features curb-side assistance for patients, expanded parking, free wifi and the implementation of patient navigators who visit with patients both in the lobby area and in the emergency rooms. Patients will also find that construction of the El Paso Street Car project is now complete outside the Memorial Campus allowing for easy patient drop off and pick up. Stay tuned in the coming weeks as we expand the Concierge ER program across the emergency rooms at our campuses throughout the network.
Make Time for Your Mammogram
Women age 40 and older should have a screening mammogram every year. Early detection is key! The earlier an abnormality is detected; the sooner it can be treated. The best chance to cure breast cancer is to detect it early before it spreads. Annual mammograms are the best method available to identify subtle changes that may indicate an early cancer.
Most insurances are accepted and cover yearly mammograms at no charge, so please review your plan for more detailed cost information. For cash pay customers, we offer $60 mammograms throughout the month of October and no doctor’s orders are needed. Click here to schedule your mammogram today!
