The new name sounds like a twenty-three year old college intern is going to come out and perform lung surgery or a hysterectomy on you. It sounds scary and unprofessional. Rename Thomason back. University Medical Center sounds bland and gets lost with all the nation's other medical centers. I have been to many hospitals across the nation, and it seems like the ones named University whatever hospital has the most unstable doctors and residents there, who are very gossipy and lie to their patients, that they are going to do one procedure and do another. I know one lady who went to a University Hospital and she almost woke up with no breast, and the only one who told her the truth they were going to do was the young man who was going to prep her before surgery. Imagine waking up with no breast and no one told you. That name of that place was Texas Tech of El Paso. There was another Universtiy Hospital that I heard them gossip about several patients private information and promised stuff was confidential but they blabbed it to everyone.

The remark by the administrators that the name change will "strengthen the presence of the hospital, allowing it to better compete for federal research funds and attract physicians" is COMPLETELY RIDICULOUS!!!
What a bunch of idiots!! Unreal!!

P.S. It's GAY not ghey.

And I think it's a good thing. People need a change. New Medical School= New hospital name.

And just because something got messed up in a hospital with a name similar to this one doesn't mean that this hospital is going to be this way.

This will change Thomason's appearance big time and maybe more people won't consider it a ghetto hospital in the Central side of El Paso.

Aw isn't that nice. A name change. what is it they say?? A rose by any other name is still a pig or something like that. Now that they have an "Alias", does that mean they stop sucking off the El Paso taxpayers??? But guess it's like "brand name or generic drugs", now WE got to pay for the "name". Suckered again.
so what

Should be called (Mexican cartel hospital)or(International bill me later hospital). With the amount of Mexican nationals that go thru the doors, El pasoans pay for the bill.

Isn't Thomason one of the best hospitals in the nation? So sad because unlike the other hospitals in El Paso they are not greedy, and work extremely hard yet many people from El Paso and Juarez won't pay their bill and take advantage of Thomason's excellence.

Sorry, you got that mixed up with Physicians Healthcare Associates/Physicians Hospital where they gossip about everyone there including their private information and personal life. Its also where the doctors are unstable and embezzle millions of dollars with Bob Jones and then deny it. They are also involved in other massive corrupt activities involving Mexico. Maybe that guy from Mexico can tell you more. I heard about some stuff that was nasty that went on in there too. Everyone talks about one another in there too, and which doctors do what to whom.

You're sooo cynical! But unfortunately, accurate.
It should have been named for what it really is "Illegal Alien Hospital Only" or "Taxpayer Drainage Hospital - U.S. citizens need not enter" The name also gives the impression that outstanding medical services are going to be provided, wrong again!

Thomasen, Del Sol, and William Beaumont Hospital are the worst hospitals in El Paso. Thomasen especially has some of the worst history yet, from using electrodes on patients to having
patients jump from a window to their death.
