El Paso News this week.
Thomason will be changing it’s name to the University Medical Center of El Paso. We’ve been waiting and watching as the battle for a children’s hospital too and that decision was made last year. We’re pretty excited about what this means for the medical community here and for the care it will provide for El Paso residents.
I’m also excited about the announcement that UTEP will be getting a Master’s of Social Work as well. It will provide training for a lot of services that are needed here along the border. It appears that from the announcement article, found here, that it will be geared to the special issues found along the border, which makes sense, but is also exciting.
