Volunteer today for EP MedCorps to help in the event of a healthcare crisis in El Paso

July 16, 2020

Nurses, physicians and non-clinicians are encouraged to volunteer as soon as possible

El Paso healthcare workers, the community needs your specialized skills to help with the current surge of COVID-19 cases. EP MedCorps was established earlier this year in order to recruit healthcare volunteers in the event of a crisis.

As cases of COVID-19 continue to increase in El Paso County, EP MedCorps encourages nurses, physicians and non-clinicians of all specialties and backgrounds to volunteer. Nurses, the El Paso healthcare community needs your help now more than ever.

EP MedCorps is a volunteer force of dedicated professionals who stand ready to support regional healthcare facilities in the event of overflow in El Paso. Should the region’s healthcare system suffer a shortage of personnel to respond to the COVID-19 outbreak, EP MedCorps volunteers will likely be deployed to help care for low acuity, non-COVID-19 patients. Those with specialized skills may be asked if they would like to care for COVID-19 patients.

Anyone who is interested in becoming an EP MedCorps volunteer is encouraged to sign up, including clinicians and non-clinicians of all specialties and backgrounds. Volunteers will be screened by the community entity requesting support and should expect a response from the entity should their skills and schedule be a good match. The community entity will provide any training and equipment necessary. There may be paid and unpaid volunteer opportunities. Details will be provided by the entities coordinating the crisis response.

Volunteer today by calling 915-242-0676 or emailing epmedcorps@phixnetwork.org.
