The University Medical Center of Southern Nevada (UMC), which played such an important role during the tragic events of 1 October, 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 with the occurrence of the shooting that resulted in the deaths of 59 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 1 October shooting who arrived with a pulse was stabilized and has since survived.

The donation was given through UMC Foundation during the grand opening of Subaru of Las Vegas in southwest Las Vegas on Nov. 29.

UMC is a non-profit 501c3 charitable organization. It is the sole fundraising arm of University Medical Center of Southern Nevada. UMC Foundation generates private financial and community partnership assets to support UMC’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 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.”

Founded in 1961 by the late Pete Findlay, Findlay Automotive Group is now headed by Findlay’s son, Cliff, who oversees 31 dealerships in Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Idaho and Oregon.
