Bullard Mentioned in Last Vegas Review Journal Article

The Abaris Group's Bill Bullard mentioned in this Last Vegas Review Journal article about the vote to designate Level 3 trauma centers at three Southern Nevada hospitals.

  • The Health District has confirmed our findings that there are more traumatic injuries occurring in areas of Las Vegas/Clark County without trauma centers than those with them.
  • Adding lower level trauma centers does not compete with UMC or Sunrise; in fact, they complement them by handling the minor/moderate cases allowing the major trauma centers to focus on critical cases.
  • The decision to add more trauma centers was distracted during the public comments by misconceptions that this would add new trauma activation charges; not true – just changing the destination of existing trauma patients.
