This week, El Paso County commissioners voted to approve the operating and capital budget for fiscal 2022 for the El Paso County Hospital District.

“We share this success with you, our community, our Board of Directors and the Tribunal Commissioners,” said R. Jacob Cintron, President and CEO.

“Your support for our hospital, its associates and its programs is directly linked to the success we have in caring for hundreds of thousands of patients each year. On behalf of our associates, leadership teams and partners in the El Paso County Hospital District, thank you for standing shoulder to shoulder with us in the common goal of improving the health of our community.

Additionally, as part of the budget approval, the El Paso County Commissioners Court approved the district’s reduction in the district’s property tax rate from $ 0.267747 to $ 0.258145.

Officials share that the approved budget and tax rate ensures that the UMC continues to grow and succeed in providing access to exceptional healthcare to our growing region of El Paso.

One of the major initiatives included in the budget and approved by the UMC Board of Directors and all members of the court of commissioners was an increase in the minimum wage from $ 11 per hour to $ 13 per hour which will be fully implemented by July FY22.

“(This vote) ensures that a high standard of health care provided by the district will be maintained for another year,” officials added.
