Business of Medicine evolves with industry

Our final Business of Medicine quarterly magazine for 2017 sets the stage for the upcoming year. We have started to change things around a bit for this publication, one of the few that covers the Las Vegas health care industry.

Nevada Medicine in 2017

As we all know in Nevada, our Legislature meets for 120 days every other year. The 2017 Legislative session will see the Democratic party in control of the Senate and the Assembly. Gov. Brian Sandoval, a Republican, is the head of the executive branch, which means that bills that are passed that do not have bipartisan support may very well face a veto challenge by the governor. With the country so divided politically, the 2017 legislative session will be a wild ride, to say the least.

Medical bankers serve health care professionals

When people have a specific illness or health issue, they see a medical specialist. But what about health care professionals who need guidance on financial services? It makes sense for them to contact a specialist at their bank who is familiar with the health care industry and can help ensure the financial health of their practice.

Georgia-based Cortland Partners purchases three senior communities

Atlanta-based Cortland Partners is the new management company for three senior living communities previously owned and managed by Destinations Living. The ownership of Destinations Living — a collection of eight gated-communities throughout the Las Vegas valley — sold seven of its properties in late October, according to the Clark County Recorder’s office. AG Mortgage Investment Trust, Inc. is associated with all seven Limited-Liability Companies listed as the property sellers.

Health care jobs among region’s most lucrative

The 19th-century American poet Ralph Waldo Emerson famously observed that “the first wealth is health,” but the business of health is proving an effective path to wealth-building of a more material sort. Health care careers are among the most lucrative in Clark County, accounting for six of the top 10 spots in a new list released by the jobs website zippia.com.

Heather Korbulic is the new head of Nevada’s federally supported state health care exchange and marketplace.

Korbulic served for eight years in Nevada’s Aging and Disability Services Division as the state’s Long Term Care Ombudsman before joining the exchange as chief operations officer in 2015. She is a graduate of the University of Oregon with a Bachelor of Science and is a Certified Public Manager.
