The parking lot of Thomason Hospital says a lot about medical care in the region near the border. Many of the license plates are from Mexico, just as many of the people in the packed emergency room of the public hospital are Mexican nationals. Those who live in Juarez, on the Mexican side of the Texas border, are likely to give the address of an aunt or a brother or cousin who lives in El Paso. That's the way it works here. The reason is both prudence and money.

Mauricio Hernandez's belly was swollen like a pregnant woman's. Every month for four years, he'd been going to the emergency room at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center to have his abdomen drained of fluid, the result of cirrhosis caused by years of heavy drinking. It wasn't exactly an emergency, but the ER was his only medical care. An illegal Mexican immigrant, Hernandez had learned that emergency rooms legally cannot turn away patients without examining and stabilizing them.

A little more than a year ago, a 23-year-old American woman on a camping trip south of Tijuana with her parents suffered burns over 30% of her body in an accident. There was no specialized burn center nearby and it took her parents a week to transport her across the border to the UC San Diego Medical Center's Burn Center. Doctors there noted that in Mexico she "received barely adequate" treatment, permitting unnecessary scarring, said Dr. John Hansbro, UCSD associate professor of surgery.
