UTEP School of Nursing Celebrates 2020-21 Gold Nugget Recipient Allie Trimble-Lozano
Since receiving her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree from UTEP in 2002, Allie Trimble-Lozano, an El Paso native, has worked her way up from critical care nurse to one of the most successful health care administrators in the Paso del Norte region.
Trimble-Lozano serves as regional chief executive officer of The Hospitals of Providence microhospitals with Emerus Holdings Inc. She has successfully led the development and operation of three neighborhood hospitals in Horizon City and in Northeast and far East El Paso, and eight health care facilities in San Antonio.
In recognition of her outstanding service to the nursing profession, UTEP and the community, Trimble-Lozano has been honored with the 2020-21 UTEP Gold Nugget Award for the School of Nursing.
For over 30 years, UTEP has recognized exceptional graduates from each of its colleges and schools who have excelled in their professions, give back to their communities and alma mater, and serve as an inspiration for future generations of Miners.
The school presented the award to Trimble-Lozano during the school’s Homecoming reception on Thursday, Sept. 30, 2021.
Among her notable accomplishments, Trimble-Lozano successfully established 12 urgent care centers from El Paso to the Interstate 35 corridor from San Antonio and Austin.
I have been blessed with the opportunity to build an incredibly strong, talented and cohesive team of caregivers, subject matter experts, and leaders for what I have coined the ‘San Paso Region,’” said Trimble-Lozano, who holds a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Phoenix. “Together we have been honored to bring health care to areas that were previously incredibly underserved within the El Paso community as well as the San Antonio community.
