El Paso is a large city in West Texas with a population of nearly 840,000 people. It wraps around the Franklin Mountains and is bordered by Ciudad Juarez, a city in Mexico with a population of 1.3 million.
El Paso spans 1,000 square miles and is home to Fort Bliss, the largest Army Forces Command and the second largest army base in the country, with around 8,600 troops.
There are three hospitals on the west side of the city and, nearly 13 miles east, there are two others. Pediatrix Medical Group of El Paso has the privilege of providing these facilities with neonatal services. We also provide neonatal care 46 miles northwest of El Paso to the two hospitals in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
Pediatrix Medical Group, a division of MEDNAX, has had a presence in El Paso since 1997. Now, under the direction of Greg Welch, M.D., our practice employs eleven Neonatologists, seventeen Neonatal Nurse Practitioners, and two Pediatric Nurse Practitioners. We serve one Level 4 NICU and six Level 3 units, meaning our team is equipped to provide comprehensive care for seriously ill newborns across our community. Our practice provides care addressing all complications of prematurity, as well as cooling, cardiac and respiratory issues, craniofacial, endocrine, and gastroenterological conditions. We strive to provide comprehensive up-to-date, evidence-based care with an emphasis on maintaining a cohesive team with excellent communication.
We serve a diverse population of cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds and are constantly striving to “Take great care of the patient, every day and in every way.TM”
Our team is bilingual! We value the importance of communication, whether it be in English or Spanish. We strive to ensure our patient’s families are well informed and confident in the care their child is receiving.
