Yesterday UTEP President Diana Natalicio returned home from The Hospitals of Providence Memorial Campus. Natalicio collapsed on Thursday, Feb. 18, at approximately 1:30 p.m., as she was on her way to vote at the student Union Building East.

“I am deeply grateful to UTEP Police Officer Bion Bell and City of El Paso EMS personnel for their quick and skillful response to my emergency,” said President Natalicio. “I also greatly appreciated the expert recovery care I received from the dedicated health professionals at The Hospitals of Providence Memorial Campus —nearly all of whom are UTEP graduates.”

“It’s been profoundly moving to receive so many sincere expressions of concern and affection from members of the extended UTEP family, and I thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes. Go Miners!”

There is still no update on what caused Natalicio to collapse or the reason for her week-long stay at Providence.
