A Welcome Message from the Provost

Welcome to the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine’s Transmountain clinical practice, an exciting collaboration between The Hospitals of Providence Transmountain Campus and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso. This unique public-private collaboration enables us to provide both high-quality patient care and clinical education opportunities for our residents, and medical and nursing students.

Our practice rests on a hillside in Northwest El Paso adjacent to the scenic Transmountain Drive, which connects Northwest and Northeast El Paso through the beautiful Franklin Mountains State Park. We serve a diverse population from West El Paso, as well as physician shortage areas extending into El Paso, West Texas and Southern New Mexico. Our mission is to elevate the quality of life of the patients we serve by providing evidenced-based health care and outstanding patient service.

In January 2017, The Hospitals of Providence Transmountain Campus, a 140-bed, full-service hospital in Northwest El Paso, was built as a teaching site for our students and future residents. Our adjacent Texas Tech Physicians of El Paso clinic is housed in a 100,000-square-foot, multispecialty clinic building, and provides high-quality outpatient care. At full capacity, the Transmountain location will house 46 physicians and 102 medical residents in the fields of family medicine, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, psychiatry, emergency medicine and general surgery. Additional residencies may follow as we mature.

If you are a patient, we offer both primary and specialty care. If you are a physician looking for a practice opportunity, we welcome those with outstanding skills, an excellent work ethic and the pioneering spirit to build the best multispecialty practice and training programs.

Together, we are improving the quality of life on the border. We welcome you to our practice, and hope to see you soon.
