EL PASO, Texas (KTSM)- The University Medical Center (UMC) of El Paso inaugurated its new Emergency Department with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in the Northeast.

El Paso County will own and operate full-service offsite Emergency Departments away from UMC’s main campus.
El Paso’s northeast families will have greater access to emergency care as UMC officially cuts the ribbon, opening up its first of two new Emergency Departments, representatives said.
The second Emergency Department will open next week.
