Las Palmas Medical Center Home to Region’s Only Kidney Transplant Center


Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare [Don Karl, CEO Las Palmas Medical Center] – We just wrapped up National Donate Life month in April where Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare celebrated those who make the selfless decision
to be organ donors. As we reflect on the patients and families
affected by transplant services we wanted to take the opportunity to highlight a wonderful
resource we offer right here in El Paso to those in need of kidney transplants. Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare is committed
to providing exceptional care for patients, especially some of the most vulnerable who
are in need of kidney transplants. To tell us more about the region’s only
kidney transplant center here is clinical director Joe Vidales. The Kidney Transplant Center here at Las Palmas
Medical Center is available to in-stage renal disease patients. These patients are dialysis patients and were here because the need is so great, and we don’t want patients to have to travel
outside of El Paso for a lifesaving kidney organ. The Transplant Center here at Las Palmas is
important because there is over 115,000 people waiting for a lifesaving organ. Everyday 22 people die just waiting for a
lifesaving organ that just doesn’t come. Since we’ve opened our center, we are coming
up to our 200th transplant. About a quarter of those transplants have
been living donor transplants. When a patient receives a call very early
in the morning that they may receive a kidney transplant, they’re excited and they’re
nervous. They come in to the hospital and we admit
them. They have lots of questions and they’re
scared, but, I also bring a team in who’s hands on, they work with these patients, and
we’re available to them 24 hours a day, seven days a week. LasPalmasDelSolHealthcare.com/service/transplant Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare

  1. I see your pre-video ads all the time but have no clue where you are. You give street addresses that I don't recognize, and no city or state. You're wasting your money and my time.
