(New York, NY)  —  Health care in Las Vegas could use some improvement, according to a new report by the Commonwealth Fund.  It finds 30% of all Sin City residents are uninsured.  Overall, Southern Nevada ranks 268th out of 306 areas across the nation for health care access, prevention and treatment. Reno is 200th overall.  The best area in the Commonwealth survey is St. Paul, Minnesota. Monroe, Louisiana ranks last.
