It is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to the inaugural edition of Health Care Quarterly, or HCQ as we’ve taken to calling it.

Thanks for picking it up and taking the time to check out a “first” for Southern Nevada (more on that a little later) when it comes to passing along medical industry news and information to you – the reader.

You may be familiar with the Health Care Quarterly name. It was a consistent feature in VEGAS INC – and In Business Las Vegas prior to that. It generally was composed of a couple of news or features stories over a few pages in our business publication.

Well, a few months ago, several talented executives and editors at the Greenspun Media Group decided we needed to take it to the next level. With apologies to the Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez and the Biogenesis investigation, we gave it a dose of steroids.

We’ll have a variety of departments in HCQ. They range from question-and-answer sessions with doctors, volunteers and other health care professionals to columns about hot topics in the medical world. We also have news and notes about people on the move and awards handed out in the industry. You’ll also find health and nutrition tips, a calendar of events, photo pages showcasing important events, our great “lists,” as well as a “Looking Back” feature that will take you down memory lane.

The model for this publication is a little different than most. The people closest to the hot-button issues in the local medical community – the health care administrators and executives themselves – will write a majority of the stories.

This magazine is a first of its kind, in that never before have readers been able to listen directly to the voice of health care professionals in print. We know that will help our readers stay current with all things related to health care. It doesn’t matter if you are old or young, male or female, working or retired, there will always be things of interest to you tucked inside each edition.

We hope you enjoy the first issue of HCQ. We welcome your feedback and ideas as we fine tune, tweak and finesse the next few editions. Please share your thoughts with us at my email address below. We’ll be back with the Fall issue Nov. 18.

Until next time,

Rob Langrell
