Emergency Care

We at EPPA have been taking care of El Paso children since 1911! 

We are transitioning to a new telemedicine system- NO anytime pediatric visits. 

For emergencies that are life-threatening, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.

Minor Emergency Treatment

We are available to address minor emergencies. Our nurses are available 24 hours a day.

During regular office hours, we can treat minor emergencies such as:

  • small cuts and lacerations
  • burns
  • minor fractures
  • eye injuries
  • foreign bodies in ears and nose
  • high fevers
  • vomiting and dehydration


For other after-hour minor emergencies, please call the office to speak with a nurse or pediatrician. They can help you decide if your child needs to be seen right away, or if it can wait until the following morning. If you are sent to the emergency room, please contact us the next day so we can follow-up on treatment and determine if your insurance requires a referral for the ER visit.
