(Las Vegas, NV) — The chief of University Medical Center will step down July 1st. Kathy Silver, who has run the county-operated hospital since 2007, hopes UMC can survive “these challenging times and become a true academic medical center.”

There have been reports at least two county commissioners wanted Silver to resign. UMC lost more than 70-million dollars in 2010, mostly from treating uninsured and low-income patients.
