University Medical Center, which played such an important role during the tragic events of Oct. 1, received a big help recently when Findlay Automotive Group donated a check for $35,000.
UMC is the home of Nevada’s only Level 1 Trauma Center, a vital part of the city especially in regards to the shooting that resulted in the deaths of 58 people and the injuring of hundreds.
During the check presentation, Findlay Automotive CFO Tyler Corder spoke about the outstanding performance of staff at UMC. Corder noted that every victim of the Oct. 1 shooting who arrived with a pulse was stabilized and has survived.
The donation was given through the UMC Foundation during the grand opening of Subaru of Las Vegas in southwest Las Vegas on Nov. 29.
The foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)3 charitable organization. It is the sole fundraising arm of UMC. The foundation generates private financial and community partnership assets to support the hospital’s extraordinary level of care.
“On behalf of the UMC and the UMC Foundation, we would like to express our appreciation to Findlay Automotive Group for its generous support for UMC,” said Mason VanHouweling, UMC’s CEO. “Thanks, too, for your recognition of UMC’s response to the tragic events of 1 October. We are very proud of the many talented and dedicated staff members who cared for those impacted by this tragedy and we thank Findlay Automotive Group for honoring their service to our community in its moment of greatest need.”
