El Paso - University Medical Center in South El Paso will soon assume responsibility for more than 1,000 mentally ill patients in the Borderland.
These patients were once under the care of El Paso Mental Health and Mental Retardation but, MHMR is full to capacity. Late this week County Commissioners voted to appoint UMC as the patients' primary care facility.
