(El Paso Times (TX) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Feb. 08--Sierra Providence Medical Center East on Wednesday had a ribbon-cutting welcoming its newly expanded emergency department.
"It's like a party on the backside of the hospital," Sally Deitch, the medical center's CEO, said.
Deitch called the Sierra Providence employees "the cornerstone" of the hospital and lauded their efforts to bring something different and unique to the area.
"Far East El Paso deserves something better and something different," Deitch added.
