AP/San Francisco Chronicle, April 9, 2009
Nevada lawmakers challenged officials from Las Vegas-based University Medical Center about their decision to end outpatient cancer treatment at the hospital. Officials from UMC said that their own budget crisis forced them to examine which services they could cut. In order to re-establish service, UMC would need to have an additional $3.5 million in revenue per year, the officials said.
