What happens in Las Vegas, is supposed to stay in Las Vegas…but when it comes to University Medical Center, it is just too great a secret to keep! University Medical Center has been serving the health care needs of Southern Nevada since 1931, when a dusty dirt road was the only way to reach the fledgling 20-bed hospital and its one doctor and one nurse. At that time the population of Las Vegas was a mere 4,000. As Las Vegas grew to the sensory overloading oasis it is today, University Medical Center grew right along with it.
The hospital is now a state-of-the-art Level 1 Trauma center, and the only advanced facility to offer a specialized team of medical professionals prepared to respond to the needs of southern Nevada’s severely injured 24 hours per day. University Medical Center is also home to the Lion’s Burn Care Center, the states only burn care facility, and also operates a comprehensive free-standing unit devoted solely to physical medicine and rehabilitation. April of this year marked the grand opening of a new Toys-R-Us Children’s Fund-Starlight Site, an awesome playroom designed to bring much-needed joy and playtime to pediatric patients at UMC.
