The University Medical Center (UMC) hospital faced a lot of heat this year, between budget cuts and a Las Vegas Sun series criticizing its quality of care.  A recent New York Times piece even triggered an investigation into what motivated its choice of heart implant companies.  UMC's CEO, Kathy Silver, and Biotronik (the implant) company give their explanations, and talk about UMC's future.
