The article focuses on the operating losses reported by five of the 12 hospitals in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2008. The losses were attributed to increasing discounts imposed by government and private insurance sources, and surging number of cases written off as charity care. The net income of the hospitals rose to 70%, which included extraordinary items such as charitable contributions. The 12 hospitals include Summerlin, Southern Hills and University Medical Center (UMC).
