UMC has earned recognition three times as one of the nation's top performing hospitals in a study titled "100 Top Hospitals: Benchmarks for Success." The study is done annually by Truven Health Analytics (formerly Thomson/Reuters) to help identify those U.S. hospitals that demonstrate superior performance on the basis of key measures related to clinical practices, operations, and financial management. UMC is the only El Paso hospital ever to earn this recognition.
UMC was recently selected by El Paso voters as Best of the Border-2015 as best Hospital, Emergency Room, and Urgent Care/Clinics.
Recently, the TMF Health Quality Institute, which is the Medicare quality improvement organization for Texas, presented UMC with its Silver Award for its performance related to the Appropriate Care measures. UMC was the only Hospital District in Texas to receive the award.
