NV specialty hospitals continue to thrive—and profit
Although much smaller and lesser known, Southern Nevada's specialty hospitals continued to financially outpace the general hospitals last year. The 14 local facilities that filed reports with the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services showed an operating profit of $54.7 million in 2011 compared with a $28.8 million loss for the general hospitals, excluding one quarter in which the University Medical Center failed to report. This disparity happened despite the general hospital net revenues, after myriad deductions from the list prices, running eight times larger than their specialty cousins.
