The El Paso County Medical Society was organized in 1879 and chartered in 1902 as the professional organization of physicians of El Paso County. The purpose of the society today remains basically the same as first written: "...to promote and develop the science and art of medicine, the betterment of the public health ..." and “to create a liaison between the doctor and patient.”
