EL PASO, Texas – University Medical Center of El Paso and PAM Health announced today they are collaborating to expand access for patients who need inpatient rehabilitation services. Through a joint venture, a UMC subsidiary and PAM Health will share ownership of an inpatient rehabilitation hospital located at 1600 East Cliff Drive in Central El Paso. This adds a new service line for UMC, which previously only offered outpatient rehabilitative services.

The facility offers the latest therapeutic equipment to help patients recover from illnesses and injuries such as stroke, amputation, and cardiopulmonary conditions.

“Through this new joint venture, El Pasoans will be able to receive a high level of personalized attention and one-on-one treatment from physical, occupational, and speech therapists in a state-of-the-art facility,” said Jacob Cintron, President and CEO of UMC El Paso. “This partnership falls in line with our mission to pursue access to healthcare for all members of our community and exceeding their expectations every time.”

PAM Health provides a wide-range of comprehensive programs that ensure high-quality care in a comfortable setting that includes private family suites.

“PAM Health has had a strong presence in Texas since our beginning, but the El Paso location is our first inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation hospital in the El Paso region,” said Anthony Misitano, Founder, Chairman and CEO of PAM Health. “By partnering with a well-established and trusted healthcare leader such as University Medical Center, we hope to improve the health and well-being of our community with access to high-quality rehabilitation services.”
