With this Recession I don't think it is right to close a clinic just because some people don't have insurance, some people need those clinic for chemotherapy, to turn them away is like giving them ,"A death sentence." this is the letter that was sent to the people.
"Dear patient, we regret to inform you that the Nevada Cancer Institute will no longer provide contract oncology services at University Medical Center."
University Medical Center is the safety net for two million people; Las Vegas bets its life on it. UMC is a teaching hospital, the only fully equipped trauma center, the only burn unit, the only transplant unit, and the primary source of charity care in a city that has fallen on the hardest times it has ever seen.
After reading this I just felt the pain for the people, and shock that they must have felt.
I am sure that the UMC can get some funds for the Clinic for the people that they are turning away.
