Almost no one has had access to meaningful information about the quality of Las Vegas-area hospitals. Until now. The Las Vegas Sun this week launched an ongoing report about hospital care in Las Vegas.

The information, coupled with interviews with more than 150 patients and healthcare insiders, has yielded a sweeping and detailed portrait of hospital care in Las Vegas.
